“Rally for the Cure” Golf Tournament

The Prospect Bay Country Club in Grasonville, Maryland was the proud sponsor of a very successful “Rally for the Cure” golf tournament on Monday, September 20, 2010. The PBCC ladies organized the annual event which was designed to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer and to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and research. The rally raised $14,200 which will be contributed to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to be used for local Maryland initiatives.

One hundred and twelve ladies participated in the eighteen hole tournament to “Tee Off Against Breast Cancer.” The winners were as follows:
• First place: Beth Wieczorek, Karen Seibel, Lori Yacobi, and Dorothy Cahill won the tournament with a score of 65 after a match of cards.
• Second Place: Karen White, Karen Dooley, Mary Watko, and Bianca Hutton came in second with a score of 65.
