There were two goals at the Pink Ribbon Classic, hosted by the Deer Park Ladies’ Golf Club on July 13. They were raising money for breast cancer research, and they were having fun doing it.

The day involved lots of fun and games, and different ways to approach golf on different holes. Golfers were also decked out in their finest pink gear as part of the program, with some even decorating their carts with matching pink ribbons.

Every dollar donated by players during the event went to the Canadian Cancer Society in Saskatchewan, earmarked for breast cancer research. All operating expenses were donated by either the Deer Park Ladies’ Golf Club or by area businesses.

“It’s really important to us that everybody realizes that every donation they make goes to the Canadian Cancer Society. We don’t touch anything for administration,” said Susan Rubell, event organizer.

The golfers raised more in 2019 than ever before, with a grand total of $5,233.
