12th annual Pink Lady Tournament raises $5,674 for AGH Foundation

(Jan. 11, 2024)  The 12th annual Pink Lady Tournament in recently raised $5,674 for the Imaging Department and the Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center at Atlantic General Hospital.

The tournament, held at the Ocean Pines Golf Club on Oct. 18, once again supported the AGH Foundation. Tournament proceeds will help pay for and provide mammograms and related care for local women who are unable to afford such services.

Over the past dozen years, the tournament helped to raise more than $18,000.

“The Pink Lady Tournament stands as a beacon of support for the AGH Foundation, dedicated to making mammograms and related healthcare accessible to women in the local community who face financial barriers,” Chanelle Lake, director of the John H. “Jack” Burbage, Jr. Regional Cancer Care Center, said. 

This year, for the first time, the tournament was open to the public and featured a field of 67 players.

Each foursome was given a pink ball, and one player from each group had to play that ball from tee to hole. The other three players played a scramble. If the player lost the pink ball, that team was out of the pink ball tournament but could continue as a four-person scramble.

Prizes were awarded for first, second and third-place scramble winners, and low pink ball winners.

Tournament organizers thanked the Ocean Pines Golf Club and Clubhouse Grille staff, along with Glen Riddle, River Run and Matt Ortt Companies for donating door prizes.

“We would also like to thank AGH for its continued support in our endeavor, and we hope to increase participation even more next year, all in the spirit of supporting women's health in the community,” Janet Stoer, tournament co-chairperson, said.
