The Play for P.I.N.K. Committee announces Bank of the Islands will be a major sponsor for the annual golf tournament at The Dunes on March 26. This contest will challenge the 128 golfers to land their drive closest to a line in the middle of the fairway on No.10, the longest hole on the course.
One-hundred percent of the funds raised by this annual tournament go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The BCRF is the highest-rated breast cancer charity in the U.S.; all fund-raising efforts are totally underwritten by the Estee Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign.
“Bank of the Islands is so proud to sponsor such a fun event for such a worthy cause,” said Vice President David Lowden. “Supporting Play for P. I. N. K. is a great way to show how much we appreciate being your island bank.”
One hundred twenty-eight golfers will tee-off at 8:30 a.m. Players will purchase mulligans, raffle tickets, pay-the-pro tickets, and participate in the Closest-to-the-Line and Putting contests. Prizes will be awarded to the first place men’s, ladies, and mixed teams. Luncheon will be served in the pavillion. A Helicopter Ball Drop with cash prizes will take place the morning of the tournament. In the week leading up to the tournament, a virtual auction with live bidding will take place from March 23-26. Auction items may be previewed online beginning Saturday, March 19.
