5th Annual Pink Ribbon Golf Classic
The 5th Annual Pink Ribbon Golf Classic was held on Monday, September 10, 2018 at Toftrees Resort and Golf Club, State College, PA.
There are many reasons why this year’s Pink Ribbon Golf Classic was a success, but one of the most significant is the continued commitment of our sponsors and golfers, providing incentive and encouragement as we care for people of this region! Even though the torrential rain stopped the actual golf game, 20/23 foursomes made it to the improvised golf event. The commitete is proud to announce that our 5th Annual Pink Ribbon Golf Classic raised $20,000 supporting programs and services at Mount Nittany Health’s Breast Care Center, taking the five year total to $105,000.
With 94 registered golfers and 22 volunteers ready to tee off at the event, they instead participated in an indoor putting and chipping contest and enjoyed participating in raffle prizes and a luncheon.
The winners of the contests were:
1st Mary Lou Shedden
Tie for 2nd Carolyn Sager & Gloria Brown
1st Ginny Hosterman
2nd Donna Nace
3rd Patty Nellis
Sue Paterno was the guest speaker during the luncheon and shared her message of how far mammography has come:
“They were lined up at the office waiting to see Dr. Jane Strickler,” states Paterno. Dr. Stickler was instrumental in implementing Mount Nittany Health’s Breast Care Center. “We have come a long way in the field of mammography and each one of you have played a role in the improvements over the years,” added Paterno.
