big-bats2Big Bats Café and Wheelhouse Band Sponsor Breast Cancer Awareness Event

Big Bats Café and Wheelhouse Band hosted “Rocking the Shore for a Cure” in October to raise awareness about breast cancer and to support Bosom Buddies Charities.

A portion of Big Bats Café’s proceeds from the evening was donated to Bosom Buddies Charities. Big Bats said they are looking forwarded to hosting the event again next October during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Big Bats Café, located in Stevensville, is a casual restaurant where two of America’s greatest pastimes― baseball and great food―come together.

“We are very grateful to Big Bats Café and Wheelhouse for their support of our organization and mission,” said Bosom Buddies Charities’ Chair Biana Arentz.

Helping organize the event was Jeanne Nooney, a member of Wheelhouse, which is a party rock band playing the latest hits to the classics. The band’s catalog of music spans five decades, and they play at local restaurants, bars, and private parties.

During the evening, guests purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win a guitar donated by PRS Guitars. Congratulations to Carl Larsen who was the winner of the guitar.

Bosom Buddies Charities is a local non-profit organization dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness, encouraging early detection, supporting treatment and celebrating healing. Their annual Bosom Buddies Ball is planned for January 7, 2017, at the Annapolis Westin Hotel. Sponsorships for the Ball are available; please contact Biana Arentz at 410.490-0332.

5th Annual Pink Polar Bear Golf Tourney Raises $2268 to Benefit The Eleanor & Ethel Leh Women’s Center at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown

Pink-Polar-Bear-Golf-Tourney-20165th Annual Pink Polar Bear Golf Tourney Raises $2268 to Benefit The Eleanor & Ethel Leh Women’s Center at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown

Summer heat did not discourage 88 golfers at the Chester River Yacht & Country Club from participating in the annual Pink Polar Bear Golf Tournament that benefits women’s health care services at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown.

Tournament participants, who ranged in age from 22 to 83, turned out on Sunday, July 31 for a traditional scramble-style game with additional accommodation offered based on a combination of each participant’s age and handicap.

According to tournament organizers Gwinn Derricott and Jane Hukill, who both volunteer at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown (Hukill also served on the Chester River Health Foundation Board for nine years), this year’s turnout was the best yet. “The low entry fee of $20 goes directly to the Foundation and other proceeds help support cash prizes,” explained Derricott. “We also raised funds through the 50/50 raffle and the sale of Mulligans and ‘gimme putts,’ which added to the fun of the competition.”

While the tournament originally was billed for ladies, men have been welcome participants as long as they show up in pink shirts. “We look forward to continuing this fundraiser for many years to come,” says Derricott. “The people of Kent and northern Queen Anne’s Counties are so fortunate to have the Leh Center for women’s health and its outstanding cancer detection and other technology.”

“It’s always gratifying to see community residents come out in force to support our hospital and to know that they have such a good time raising funds for an important cause even when the weather is unforgiving,” says Maryann Ruehrmund, executive director, Chester River Health Foundation. “The Foundation Board really appreciates the time and effort, as well as the funds raised, by the volunteers who organize this event each year.”
