$125 Fundraising Challenge

Every dollar counts when fundraising for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

The average cost of a Komen-funded mammogram is $125. If you asked five friends to donate $25, the money you raise could provide a mammogram for an underserved woman in Orange County.

Komen OC has set up the “125 Fundraising Challenge” encouraging Race participants to raise at least $125 each. Our goal this year is to raise $3 million for vital breast health services and to help us succeed we encourage your participation in the $125 Fundraising Challenge.

As we celebrate the lives of those who have battled breast cancer, we must remember the importance of fundraising to support education programs and scientific research toward the fight against breast cancer.

Register now and start raising money toward your goal of $125.

The race is on Sunday, September 23. There is still plenty of time to make a difference!

Red, White and Greens

RWG 10 year

The 10th annual Reds, Whites and Greens Golf Tournament was held Monday, July 23 at the Strawberry Farms Golf Course in Irvine.

Two time breast cancer survivor and founder of the tournament, Cindy Thomsen, presented Komen OC with a check in the amount of  $130,198 raised from this year’s tournament. In the past 10 years Thomsen has raised a total of $1,361,720. 

The event featured a 4-person-scramble golf tournament, “Around-the-World” wine tasting and food every three holes, an opportunity to sip wine with LPGA Players, and silent and live auctions with more than 200 bottles of fine wine, golf travel and merchandise, vacation packages and more. Prizes were awarded for longest drives, closest to the pins and low gross winners.

Thank you Cindy Thomsen for your hard work and charitable donation.
