Chesterwye 7th Annual Golf Tournament

Gus Team (400 x 265)Mother Nature was kind to the Chesterwye and the golfers who participated in their 7th annual golf tournament which was held at Prospect Bay Country Club on June 10th.

The rain which pelted the shore for days fell everywhere that morning but on the beautiful PBCC golf course, which gave the team of Queenstown residents Gus Diakoulas, Steve Jakubowski, Bruce Bieghlie and Frank Taliano the opportunity to sneak out a victory over Steve Arentz, Greg Todd, Robbie Gill and Tom Shankle.

The team of Dr. Gary Sprouse, Ron Walden, Joe Boone and Dan Bungori finished third.

In the post tournament awards ceremony Chesterwye Executive Director, Dan Bungori thanked all the golfers who defied the forecasts, and turned out to support the Chesterwye Center and the Chesterwye Adult Day Medical Program.

Among several contributors that Mr. Bungori cited, he highlighted all the contributions of the Grasonville Volunteer Fire Department to the community, and then said, “Thank goodness they save lives and fight fires better than they golf.”

He also thanked Dr. Michael Pelczar for his ongoing contributions to the Chesterwye, the County Commissioners for their assistance, and to the Bay Country Moose who originated the event.

Many other awards and prizes were given out as the outing ended on a rainbow inside the clubhouse, while the skies erupted outside.

Prospect Bay’s Buddy Up for Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament Kicks off Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Ten years ago, a group of Prospect Bay women dedicated to making a difference in breast cancer prevention began what has become an annual and highly anticipated event, the Rally for the Cure Golf Tournament. This year the group decided to “Keep it Local” and partnered with Bosom Buddies Charities to host the Buddy Up for Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament on September 14, 2012, as a kick-off to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Working together, the Prospect Bay group and the Bosom Buddies raised over $10,000 to help improve the breast cancer survival rates in Queen Anne’s County.

The Buddy up for Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament, held with the beautiful backdrop of Prospect Bay Country Club, brought together 100 golf enthusiasts and supporters of the cause so dear to the hearts of both groups of women. In addition to the participants, 40 local businesses sponsored golf holes and 95 additional businesses and supporters donated items for the two auctions held during the luncheon that took place in a packed Clubhouse. “We are so grateful to the ladies of Prospect Bay and their many friends for their support of Bosom Buddies Charities,” said Bosom Buddies Golf Tournament Chair Linda Bailey. “Bosom Buddies thanks Linda Bailey and Karen White, both Prospect Bay residents and supporters of Bosom Buddies, for all their hard work and dedication to our cause,” said Bosom Buddies Board Chair Biana Arentz, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor.

Bosom Buddies has been a force for good in the community since its inception in 2006. The group’s mission of promoting breast cancer awareness, encouraging early detection, supporting treatment, and celebrating healing, keeps them fully committed to activities that transform those words into tangible benefits for Queen Anne’s County residents. Bosom Buddies has raised over $1 million in five short years and funnels the proceeds from all fundraising events back into the community. The organization has donated the digital mammography equipment at the Kent Island Breast Center, funded a highly successful Survivor Retreat last spring, and supports a nurse navigator to help guide breast cancer patients through complex medical systems and negotiate through the barriers to care along the continuum. This year’s Taste of the Island Ball—their major fundraiser—will be held January 19, 2013.

Bosom Buddies Charities encourages all women to discuss with their physicians the appropriate mammography guidelines for their particular medical history, and encourages all women over 40 to have their annual mammogram during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And because our focus is local, we especially urge all Queen Anne’s County residents to visit our website, www.bosombuddiescharities.org, to learn more about Bosom Buddies Charities and how we may help each other make our community a healthier one.
