Monday introduced the 23rd coming of the Deaconess Classic for Women’s Health, an occasion that raised greater than $2 million to benefit Tri-State women in want of preventive care, resembling mammograms, pelvic exams, in addition to most cancers analysis.
As traditional, the Classic Committee introduced in a LPGA professional and the 2014 rookie of the yr Kim Kaufman.
“It was pretty easy to say ye,” Kaufman defined. “It’s 118 women today on this golf course, you don’t see that ever. So to be a part of this cause for breast cancer is just something you can’t say no to.”
“I think the greatest accomplishment that we have done, last year was to contribute toward the mammography bus,” stated Jayne Manis, Deaconess Classic Committee Member. “The traveling bus for the indigent women, the people who can’t travel. We have really come a long way since the first year, 23 years ago.”
This yr’s occasion was devoted to former Deaconess Foundation Executive Director, Nancy Koehler, who misplaced her battle with most cancers earlier this yr.
