The Women’s Golf Association at the Parkersburg Country Club is helping the WVU Cancer Institute win the fight against breast cancer. During its Annual Golf Fore A Cure Invitational on June 14 the Association raised more than $12,000 for breast cancer research at the Cancer Institute in Morgantown and to support Camden Clark Foundation’s Pink Mammogram Fund, which provides free screening mammograms, diagnostics and breast biopsies for local underinsured and uninsured residents at the Cancer Institute’s Camden Clark Medical Center. Proceeds from the Invitational came from participant entry fees, hole sponsorships, doorprize tickets and mulligans sold the day of the event.
“A lot of our members have either been treated or are being treated for breast cancer at the WVU Cancer Institute and we like to support local efforts to fight the disease,” said Sue Lilly, who co-chaired Golf Fore A Cure with Judy Crichton.
