Pink Ribbon Golf Classic to benefit The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center

The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center is proud to be named as the beneficiary of the first annual Pink Ribbon Golf Classic event to be held Monday, September 8, 2014.

The Pink Ribbon Golf Classic will be held at the Penn State Golf Courses as a women-only event benefitting cancer care. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will be dedicated toward the purchase of a new screening and diagnostic imaging device (Tomosynthesis) at the Mount Nittany Health Breast Care Center.

Tomosynthesis, or 3-D mammography, takes multiple X-ray images of the breast at different angles, creating a three-dimensional image that results in better visibility, earlier detection of breast cancers, and reduced follow-up diagnostic testing.

The format of the event is a four-person scramble, with the $125 per person entry fee including continental breakfast, team photo, greens fee, cart, gift, and lunch. A shotgun start will begin the tournament at 8:30 am.

Numerous sponsorship opportunities for individuals or businesses are available. For information on how to register or sponsor the Pink Ribbon Golf Classic, contact Carolyn Follett at 814.353.4855.
