Fore the Girls Inaugural Golf Outing Fundraiser to Fight Breast Cancer

Event to help under-served women in West Michigan get access to and pay for life-saving breast
cancer screenings and more.
On Monday, May 23rd, at Spring Lake Country Club, the first round of a 9-hole scramble will start at
9 AM, followed by lunch and a short program and then an afternoon flight of 9-holes, with a 1 PM
start. Individuals or teams of 2 or 4 women can sign up online: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fore-thegirls-
tickets. This event is for all levels of players but sorry guys… This event is for ladies only!
Co-Chaired by Sarah Arnold and Gina Kelly-Vis, the all-volunteer committee has dedicated countless
hours to ensure a fun and meaningful event that will have a positive impact on their community. All
participants will receive educational materials and be reminded of the risk factors for getting breast
cancer.
“We know that early detection saves lives” said Co-Chair Sarah Arnold. “Yet too many of the women
we know still find it late and therefore are subject to much harsher treatments, longer recovery and
may even die. Our event is going to educate those that attend and raise money so that everyone in
our community can have access to life-saving screening and diagnostic tests at our great local
hospitals and clinics.”
The benefactor of this year’s Fore the Girls Golf Outing is Susan G. Komen Michigan, an
organization that has a long history of supporting community health efforts.
“As a breast cancer survivor and resident of Spring Lake, I’m so excited about the passion of this
committee and the potential for this event” said Jennifer Jurgens, executive director of Komen
Michigan. “75% of the funds raised are going to be put back into West Michigan organizations that
ensure all women, regardless of their age, income or ethnicity, get access to life-saving screening
and tests. The remaining 25% will be in invested into research into the cures for breast cancer.”
