Pink Ribbon tourney gets local support Delores Springer is a cheerful, persistent and successful golfer. Unlike other players, however, her achievements in golf benefit hun- dreds of women. Springer directs the Cape Re- gion&apos;s annual Pink Ribbon Golf Classic, a popular charity tourna- ment now in its fifth year. The Pink Rib- bon raises money for breast cancer screening, de- tection and support servic- es. The outing flPRINGER raised more than $42,000 in net proceeds in its first four years. Last year's event at Sussex Pines Country Club netted more than $14,700. The fundraising trend is clearly going in the right direc- tion. "I'm a survivor myself," Springer explained recently. "I was first diagnosed in November 1990, and had a mastectomy that same month. After the surgery I had follow-up chemotherapy treatment until June 1991. After that, I started playing golf." After her own cancer experi- ence, Springer wanted to help oth- ers, especially women who didn't qualify for assistance under other programs. "Our Pink Ribbon tournament primarily benefits women under 40 Whose medical history cause their doctors to suggest a mam- mography or ultrasound. Some women are uninsured, and others are underinsured. We make up the difference," Springer said. Mammography of Delaware (MOD) receives all of the event's net proceeds. The MOD van trav- els throughout Delaware, and gives many women easier access to mammogram services. Pink Ribbon funds pay for diagnostic testing, breast health programs and clinical breast exams per- formed in the van at Beebe Hospi- tal in Lewes and at Christiana Fritz Schranck Michael Short Evenings: - 7:10 p.m. - 9 p.m.F.mail GOLF Care near Wilmington. The 1998 tournament proceeds paid the printing costs for a re- source guide for Delaware women. Doctors give the guide to their patients during the initial stages of diagnosis and treatment for the disease. This year's tournament will be played on May 5 at Seaford Golf and Country Club. AstraZcneca is a primary sponsor again this year, and Springer is grateful for the pharmaceutical company's significant support. The Pink Ribbon's luncheon, silent auction and raffle are open and available to all women (and men, too), although the tourna- ment field of 136 players is al- ready sold out. Luncheon tickets are $15. For reservations, call Springer at 945-8652. The auction and raffles are very popular. For example, golf cours- es throughout Delmarva and southern New Jersey donate rounds for foursomes. The bid- ding is brisk. Sporting goods Stores, hotels, restaurants and oth- er businesses also coalzibt, such as the Rose and Crown in Lewes and Betsy's Appa00 in 00hoboth. Plenty of opportunity remains to donate toward the auction and raffles or provide other assistance: Springer and Reid appreciate the past support given by the Cape Region business community. Call Springer for details, or Reid at 227-6279. Breast cancer is far too preva- lent. As Springer gays, however, "We're fortunate to live in a state where the public and private sec- tors can work together to fight this disease." Many women are also fortunate that Delores Springer wanted to help.
