Mizner Country Club’s Play for P.I.N.K. recently raised $30,000 from a three-day fundraising campaign with their members.

The events included golf and tennis tournaments, and a silent auction at the Delray Beach club. Proceeds from the three-days of fundraising go to Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate Diagnosis, Technology, Knowledge), a grassroots women’s organization that raises money for breast cancer research.

“I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all our members whose generosity helped make this year’s event such a great success,” said Nancy Marino, Mizner’s Play for P.I.N.K. chairwoman, who also sits on the club’s Foundation Board. “A special thank you goes out to our committee members and sponsors for their tireless efforts in organizing this year’s event here at Mizner.

“It was a fun-packed time gathering friends and sharing a special bond to give to this incredibly worthwhile organization,” she said. “Each year, more than 30,000 individuals participate in 300 events across 30 states on behalf of Play for P.I.N.K. and 100% of the proceeds from all of the tournaments and events are donated to their sole beneficiary, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).”

“We’re honored that Mizner could play a role in breast cancer research and saving the life of even one person in the future,” Marino said.
