Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club, Grand Blanc, MI — June 6, 2019

A diagnosis of breast cancer is a devastating moment in the life of a woman with the disease. It drains families physically, emotionally, and financially. The lowest point comes when the patient loses hope and seemingly has nowhere to turn.

It’s the goal of The Pink Par-Tee 501c3 Fund to provide financial support to help meet basic needs, decrease stress levels and allow breast cancer patients in active treatment to focus on healing. By partnering with cancer treatment centers in mid-Michigan, Pink Par-Tee fund donations are also used to purchase critical treatment tools used in radiation and chemotherapy.

Raising Funds for the Cause

The Pink Par-Tee website references the inspiration behind the creation of the fund.

“Members of Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club of Grand Blanc, Michigan, created Pink Par-Tee in 2010 to honor their friend, a young mother and avid golfer, who was diagnosed with breast cancer.
They were inspired by her experience during treatment whereby she met many women struggling financially and emotionally as they fought to survive. It was clear that money raised must go directly to women fighting the disease to help with their daily needs – this would provide the greatest impact.
Pink Par-Tee, attended by Warwick lady members and their friends, is a fun-filled, annual golf event that celebrates breast cancer survivors and honors those who have lost the fight while raising money for women of mid-Michigan undergoing breast cancer treatment.”
