The 2008 Hot Pink Golf Tournament was another success.
Held Oct. 22 at The Course at Eagle Mountain in Batesville, the annual event raised $14,000 for breast cancer research.
Proceeds from the tournament were split between the Women's Center at White River Medical Center and the Arkansas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen in Little Rock.
Co-chair for the tournament was the Cherokee Village Ladies' 18-Hole Golf Association, along with The Ladies of the Course at Eagle Mountain.
The day was filled with pink, all the way from the drive up to the course, to the pink Bad Boy Lawnmower where the teams had their photo made, and to the tee boxes.
Winners of this year's tournament were Virginia Morrow and Barbara Hawbaker of Cherokee Village.
Second place went to Natasha Chapman and Michele Dugan, also from Cherokee Village.
Event organizers remind all women that October is breast cancer awareness month and everyone should have, or have scheduled, a mammogram.
Local sponsors supporting the tournament were: Rita Spicer, local State Farm agent; White River Medical Center; First Community Bank; Dr. Tim and Alice Young; Tom and Annie Hilburn; and Lillian Newburn.
The Cherokee Village Ladies' 18-Hole Golf Association was well represented at the Hot Pink Tournament, with 22 players supporting the event by playing.
Next year, the Hot Pink Tournament returns to the Cherokee Village South Course, with the Cherokee Village Ladies' 18-Hole Golf Association serving as event hosts.
The 2009 tournament is slated for Oct. 7.
Cherokee Village Ladies' 18-Hole golfers participating were: Michele Dugan, Doris Gill, Virginia Morrow, Pat McCarroll, JoAnn Pidrak, Natasha Chapman, Betty Stokes, Freddy Hudson, Penny Reynolds, Joanie Norrish, Jeannie Freeman, Gerri Dennis, Jeanette Graham, Nancy Maguire, Barb Hawbaker, Anna Verkler, Inga Beiberitz, Jan Haney, Lynne Paeth, Leslie Gitz, Charleen Parten and Paula Curtis.
