Do you enjoy golf? Do you appreciate wine? Do you want to be part of a “million dollar moment”? If any of your answers are yes, we will see you at the Reds, Whites & Greens Charity Golf Classic on July 26 at the Newport Beach Country Club. This will be the 8th annual event and proceeds are expected to put the cumulative total over one million dollars – all benefiting the Orange County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The golf classic was started by breast cancer survivor Cindy Thomsen who was first diagnosed in 1998 at the age of 33. She loves golf, she loves wine, so she decided to combine her two hobbies into one event. A second bout with breast cancer in 2002 cemented her passion for breast cancer research and education. Having been a very young target for breast cancer, Cindy feels extremely fortunate to have successfully battled the disease twice and credits the improvements in both breast cancer education and diagnostics for her early detection and ultimate recovery.
Cindy chose the Komen Orange County Affiliate as the sole beneficiary of all proceeds from the Reds, Whites & Greens Charity Golf Classic. To date, the event has raised $867,000.
We will see you on July 26th, along with Eric Brinker, the son of Komen founder Nancy Brinker and nephew of Susan G. Komen, who will be there to congratulate Cindy. Go to www.redswhitesgreens.com to sign up to play, to purchase a tee sign or to attend the dinner and auction to celebrate with Cindy and her committee.
