The North Fork Breast Health Coalition will hold its 11th annual golf outing at The Vineyards Golf Club, a private links-style course that was formerly called Old Vine. Golfers check in at 3 PM, with tee time at 4 PM.
Golf and dinner costs only $125 per person. The afternoon and evening includes nine holes of golf, a cart, range balls, beverage cart, cocktail hour and buffet dinner, plus the chance to participate in raffles and win prizes. If you are not a golfer, you can join the group for dinner afterward for $75.
Although it may be possible to sign up that day, registration in advance is recommended. To register or to obtain more information, contact Event Chair Susie Bandar. You can also register on www.NYCharities.org.
Tee-sign sponsorships and various other opportunities to participate as a sponsor are still available. The cost ranges from $100 for a tee sign to $500 to sponsor the event.
Currently led by Susan Ruffini, the all-volunteer, non-profit organization supports local breast-cancer patients with programs such as the Helping Hand grants. Funds raised by the golf outing will also allow the group to continue to provide free services such as yoga, massage therapy, reflexology and support groups to breast-cancer patients and survivors.
For more information about the North Fork Breast Health Coalition and the services that the organization provides to breast-cancer patients and survivors who reside (or are being treated by doctors) in the North Fork area, call the coalition office in Riverhead at
