Message from Jackie Golebiewski and Karen Pohlman:
This year’s Rally for the Cure Fall Tournament was held on September 8, 2016. Thirty-two members enjoyed the beautiful weather as we played the Step Aside Scramble.
Through the generosity of our members and friends we were able to donate $2,954 to Roswell Park Cancer Institute for its Breast Cancer Resource Center. The Resource Center provides support and information helping local patients deal with their cancer treatment as well as giving wigs, scarfs and hats to cancer patients who have gone through chemotherapy. Each year we have made our donation in memory of Angela McCarthy a former member of our Women’s Golf Association. Gifts were also received in memory of Peter Crone, a member of Springville and husband of Sue.
In addition, $1,165 was donated to the Susan G. Komen National Rally for the Cure from members and friends at SCC. A portion of these funds will pass to the local Komen affiliate for use in their program to promote breast cancer awareness and research locally here in Buffalo. We have enjoyed the support of many of our members over the past years.
Thank you to all Springville CC members who donated to our event.
