The Dallas County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen® and local 70’s cover band Le Freak are partnering for the fourth annual Caddyshack for the Cure™, a one-of-a-kind golf tournament where participants take a trip back to the 1970s complete with retro golf and disco attire.
There are tons of reasons to make it out to Bear Creek Golf Club in Dallas on Thursday, April 26 for this fabulous tournament. Shall I list a few for you?
- You love to golf
- You love disco classics (from bands like Le Freak!!)
- You love to dress like the cast of Saturday Night Fever or Caddyshack—whichever direction you choose
- You love at least one woman – mom, sister, daughter, friend
Yes, we’ll be dressed like we’re in the Decade of Disco and perhaps even some Caddyshack inspired attire. But it is 2012, and we need to educate and support women in our own neighborhoods about breast health. That is what Komen Dallas County is all about. Of the funds raised, 25 percent goes to find a cure and 75 percent stays right here in Dallas County, helping the women in our lives prevent and beat cancer.
Although early detection saves lives, currently only 62.5 percent of women in Dallas County receive an annual mammogram screening. Fundraisers like Caddyshack for the Cure™ help Komen Dallas County fill the gap in breast-health services for medically underserved patients in the community by supporting breast-health education, breast-cancer screening and treatment for uninsured and underinsured Dallas County residents.
Spots are still available for the tournament. The registration fee is $600 for a team of four or $160 for an individual. This includes lunch, dinner, golf and cart fees, and admission to the private Le Freak concert, which will take place following the tournament. (And a portion of the registration fee is tax deductible.)
Lunch and practice begin at 11:30 a.m. and the tournament tees off at 1 p.m. If you can’t make it out for golf, swing by for dinner at 5:30 p.m. and the Le Freak concert at 7:30 p.m.! Call 214/750-7223 for more information or register here.
Hope to see you there!
