The Play in Pink campaign in aid of Breast Cancer Research continues to go from strength to strength at golf clubs around the country off the back of a record-breaking year in 2021.
The brilliant golf initiative raised a whopping €405,000 last year to support the research programme at the Lambe Institute, Galway; their ongoing vital work so important to so many of our lives.
The money raised was a testament to the generosity of the clubs involved and the golf industry as a whole. Clubs around Ireland have ran with the concept again in 2022 while Play in Pink was also recently announced as the Official Charity Partner of next month’s KPMG Women’s Irish Open at Dromoland Castle, with fans and players alike encouraged to don their finest pink attire on the Friday of the competition.
There have been a number of new clubs teeing up in pink already this year and although we may have reached the end of the summer, there’s still time to get involved in aid of this most worthy cause.
Far from just women golfers teeing up, the campaign has been encouraged by the number of juniors and men taking to the fairways in flamingo pink and who knows, with a big push between now and the end of the year, maybe Play in Pink can break another record before the season is out.
Congratulations to everyone for an amazing effort so far in 2022 and for more information on how to get involved with Play in Pink, visit www.PlayInPink.com
