The second annual Golf For the Cure is less than one month away and this year, organizers hope to double the $10,000 that was raised last year.

Last year’s event was highlighted by Nel Lord shaving her head after she raised $2,400.

The following is a note sent by organizer Michelle Nagy about the event:

Golf Fore the Cure is about using the sheer power of women playing golf to make a difference. This was an opportunity to not only introduce women in the community to the game of golf in a fun, involved way, but also to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

By partnering with the Canadian Cancer Society, Golf Canada has created the Golf Fore the Cure fundraising program to bring women together – whether you are a golfer or not – for a common purpose and to have some fun in the process.

It’s all about having fun and creating magic along the way.

It is our intent to make this an annual event that keep growing and growing and making a bigger difference year after year. Come out support us any way you can; be a participant, be a sponsor, donate a raffle prize…

Last year our event raised $10,000, this year our goal is to double that number. Now that would be magical!
