What a fantastic day we had! 60 ladies dressed in pink, many with fab pink hair do's playing golf at Silves.
The SdM 'dream boys' did a superb job of looking after the registrations, cards, selling brooches and Mulligans. Not to mention setting up the course with pink tee markers and flags. They happily served us with fizz, water and nibbles. Certainly made it a special day to remember.
The event has raised in excess of €3,000 for the Algarvean Oncology Association, fantastic! This will help fund the mobile breast screening unit and hopefully save Ladies lives.
On behalf of aoa and the SdM Pink Ladies we would like to express our appreciation to everyone who has played in the event, donated a prize, food or drink, given their time to prepare the event in some way and of course the 60 lovely ladies who played.
Each lady received a set of 3 golf balls donated by Nevada Bob’s, Almancil.
There were 6 pairs that scored 47 points! Count back had to go to back 9 and then back 6. Thank you to Richard Emrich and Peter Chapman for collating the results.
