In 2022 alone, they paid for cancer treatment for over 300 patients.
“The Governors Club community has a 30-year history of providing volunteers and financial support for many local charities including Habitat for Humanity, CORA Food Pantry, United Way, and several other organizations supporting education, literacy, and many other organizations in our area. In 1999, the Governors Club Women’s Golf Association began fundraising efforts to support breast cancer organizations and charities.

“As one of our breast cancer champions said, everyone deserves a chance to live, so our goal is to work with groups like Governors Club to raise funds so that breast cancer patients in North Carolina get that chance. We are grateful for the Governors Club will host this year’s All for the Pink event in support of our breast cancer champions. Since partnering with Governors Club, the $130,000 in funds they have raised so far pays for 2,600 chemotherapy treatment sessions or for more than fifty of our breast cancer champions to receive full medical treatment,” said Becky Horn, Executive Director, Pretty In Pink Foundation.
