Bocaire Country Club Takes a Swing Out of Cancer at 14th Annual The Play for PINK Golf Tournament


Bocaire Country Club, a boutique-sized country club noted for its 300 acres of beautiful fairways, lakes and landscaped vistas, recently hosted its 14th annual The Play for PINK golf tournament, raising more than $54,000 for breast cancer research. Since 2001, the annual tournament at Bocaire has raised more than $588,000 on behalf of The Play for PINK, which stands for Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology and Knowledge. One hundred and eight golfers participated on Sunday, April 6. Activities on the 18-hole, Joe Lee-designed golf course included several friendly contests, including hole-in-one, straightest drive and closest to the hole on each par 4. Inside Bocaire’s newly renovated clubhouse, there were various “Games for PINK,” including a spirited game of mahjong, a raffle, auction and a delicious buffet dinner. “This annual event was a great success thanks to our generous members and all of the enthusiastic golfers and game players,” said Bocaire’s Chief Executive Officer Russell Carlson. “Since 1990 The Play for PINK has raised more than $29 million for breast research through events at 140 different country clubs in 23 states – and at Bocaire Country Club, we are always very proud to support this extraordinarily valuable nonprofit organization.”
