WOMEN IN FOCUS GOLF OUTING
TO BENEFIT THE MERCY PINK RIBBON FUND

Port Huron, Mi... It's all about you at the Sixteenth Annual St. Joseph Mercy Pink Ribbon Ladies' Day Golf Outing to benefit the Mercy Pink Ribbon Fund. Save the date for this year's outstanding women's only nine-hole golf scramble designed to support local women who lack health insurance and the financial resources to pay for their care and are in need of advanced breast cancer diagnosis.

The Mercy Pink Ribbon Ladies' Day will be held Thursday, June 23, 2011 at Fore Lakes Golf Club in Kimball Township. The event kicks off at 7 a.m., with registration and the coveted Spirit Award and Cart Decorating contests. The cost is just $75 per person and includes a continental breakfast, nine holes of golf with cart, and buffet lunch. In addition to the golf, women's focused product vendors will be on hand to share with you the latest golf fashions, jewelry, hand bags and much more. Educational information will be available and special gifts and raffle prize drawings will also be held.

"Women in Focus is an outstanding event, in an outstanding and supportive community," comments Wendy Palmateer, of Golf Country and Chair of the Pink Ribbon Golf Outing Committee. "For years, women from throughout the region have come together to support other women in need through this event. It's a fun-filled day that is truly inspirational."

The Mercy Pink Ribbon Ladies' Day is cosponsored by the St. Joseph Mercy Foundation and Golf Country, located in Kimball Township, MI. There are a number of ways individuals and businesses can participate. Participant and business event sponsorship packages are available. Last year's event raised just over $20,000 that went directly to benefit women in need in our community.


"Women who are beneficiaries of these funds are truly in need and always very appreciative of the service offered," comments Sue Dawson, St. Joseph Mercy Financial Counselor. "For one reason or another, these women are experiencing economic pressures and lack health insurance to continue to obtain breast cancer diagnosis after a positive mammogram.

"What this fund offers is some relief," continues Dawson. "When faced with the uncertainty of cancer, we're so grateful to offer a small measure of peace of mind on the financial side. This fund is tremendously important, not only for the physical health, but the emotional health of these women in true need."
