Summer may be noticeable by its absence of late but the weather hasn’t dampened the spirits of those determined to play their part in pink for Breast Cancer Research.
Dromoland Castle became the latest club in Ireland to deliver a splash of pink to the fairways with their very successful outing last week led by Lady Captain Karina Doyle.
Members and guests were out in force draped in flamingo pink and a wonderful day was had by all, with sweet treats provided to the players at the 14th thanks to Maria Nolan.
For anyone new to the Play in Pink cause, it’s a movement worth playing for; one in eight women will develop breast cancer in the course of their lifetime, while one in 1000 men will also be affected. In-all, there are 3100 new cases diagnosed each year in Ireland.
Therefore, we can’t recommend Playing in Pink enough in terms of showing your support to our national charity which funds a comprehensive research programme at the Lambe Institute at NUI Galway.
Not only are the days vital fundraisers for Breast Cancer Research but they’re filled with lots of fun and boast eye-catching fashion and action packed golf.
Last year there were 130 ‘Play in Pink’ days around the country which have raised over €160,000 in 2019 alone, no mean feat in a time where there are so many worthy causes to support and there’s been a great response to the movement in 2020 too.
