Sports Friday, September 6, 2013


The golfing community has been invited to participate in the Women’s Breast Health Initiative’s (WBHI) 2nd annual “b fore pink” breast cancer golf tournament scheduled for Friday, September 27, at Don Shula’s Golf Club in Miami Lakes.

The event features great golf, fabulous food, delectable drinks, exciting entertainment, and a silent auction. Proceeds from the event will help WBHI help uninsured and underserved women benefit from early detection before they turn pink.

WBHI, a 501(c)(3) non-profit Florida corporation, is comprised of thousands of volunteers. WBHI focuses on the importance of breast health using a proactive, preventative and unique approach against breast cancer.

The organization provides free breast health awareness, education, mammograms and referrals to uninsured and underserved individuals by going door-to-door in neighborhood outreach. Since 2006, WBHI has knocked on more than 55,000 doors.

This year, more than 1,100 volunteers will knock on an additional 10,000 doors in South Florida. For information about donating a silent auction item, or to reserve for the golf tournament, contact Stephanie Hoogenbergen at 305-825-4081, or reach her at stephanie@flbreasthealth.com.
