The Shades of Pink Golf Tournament committee announced its annual golf tournament, set for Friday, August 2, at South Hills Country Club.  The golfing event has raised more than $50,000 over the past nine years, funding patient care through direct services including mammograms, nurse navigators, vital medical technology, and prevention and education programs that has helped save lives for those receiving care for breast cancer at UPMC Chautauqua.  This year’s event proceeds will be used toward the expansion of the new Mammography Suite located at the hospital.

If you would like to sponsor the event or make a donation to the Shades of Pink, whether a tax-deductible sponsorship, personal donation or a prize to be raffled off the day of the event, please contact the WCA Foundation C/O Shades of Pink, Jones Health, 51 Glasgow Avenue, PO Box 840, 14702-0840, Jamestown, NY., 716.664.8665 or contact Anne and Steve Sischo at 716.664.9871 or 716.665.7873. All proceeds stay local to help area patients diagnosed with breast cancer.
