Hot Pink a red-hot success

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

The Cherokee Village Women's 18-Hole Golf Association hosted the Hot Pink Breast Cancer Golf Tournament Oct.7 at Cherokee Village's North Golf Course.

Pink was the color for the fall gathering, starting with a pink breakfast.

A silent auction was also held during the day.

Forty-two teams participated in the two-lady scramble, raising more than $7,000 for the cause.

Monies raised will go to the Arkansas Affiliate of Susan G. Komen.

Liberty Bank of Arkansas provided the flight prize money, First Community Bank provided a special gift for each participant and FNBC provided lunch for the group at the North Golf Course Recreation Room, catered by Village Market and Pam Steele.

The Cherokee Village Women's 9-Hole Golf Association was on hand to help with the food preparation.

Farm Bureau agents Joey Sample and Theron Isaacs sponsored a hole-in-one prize valued at $10,000, and White River Medical Center North Complex representatives were on hand to remind all the ladies about yearly mammograms, self breast exams, educating on early detection, and by doing blood sugar and cholesterol readings. Ron Rhodes/King Rhodes Realty and Eben Daggett/American Land Co. sponsored the cart rentals. Next year, the Hot Pink Tournament rotates to The Course at Eagle Mountain in Batesville.

Event organizers remind that there is no cure for breast cancer, so early detection is still the best defense.
