Caloosa Country Club Hosts Rally for The Cure

By Paula Lickfeldt


Co-Chairpersons Jana Roberts and Rosemarie Bryan started planning for the Susan G. Komen Rally for the Cure golf tournament last July. The women of Caloosa Country Club have participated in the Rally for the Cure for the last five years. By the end of the day, the women had raised $2,500 to send to the Komen Foundation.

Eleven local SCC businesses contributed items to be raffled off, including a manicure or a dinner out to name two.  The women of Caloosa also donated baskets filled with goodies for a continental breakfast to be raffled.  A 50/50 was held as another means of raising money.

Twenty-three Memorial Posters in the memory of someone who had died of cancer and three Honor Posters for women who had survived breast cancer were also sold. Caloosa has 17 women who have survived breast cancer.  Eleven of the survivors either played golf or attended the luncheon or both, and each attending survivor was given a long stemmed pink rose.

Fifty-three women played gold on Wednesday October 24, at the Caloosa Golf and Country Club and 12 women attended the lunch only.  There were 13 teams. The winning team members were Dottie Smiley, Aileen Engel, and Beverly Smith with a score of 69.  The winning team shared a money prize of $80.

Every participating woman and man had a wonderful day and were very proud of the contribution that they were able to make to the Susan G. Komen, Rally for the Cure Foundation.
