“One thing that's horrible about cancer is that no one is too far from it,” said Brandt LaPish, Development Director for The DCH Foundation. “It seems to touch everyone in some way, someone has an aunt, someone has a cousin, and so it's a very localized issue. A lot of people have been through some sort of treatment, or someone they love has.”
The events focus on fun as a priority, but they also serve to create a better quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families. The DCH Breast Cancer fund helps provide free mammograms, among other things, for women in the community who can’t afford them.
The annual Play Pink events kick off with the A Day on the Courts ladies’ tennis mixer on Oct. 9 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Games will be played at the Indian Hills Country Club Tennis Facility. Sign-ups for single players cost $80 and $160 for doubles teams.
On Oct.11, The DCH Foundation will host a night of dining and dancing with A Night on the Green. Beginning at 6 p.m. at the Bryant Conference Center, attendees will be treated to live music from Steel Toe Stilettos while mingling with other members of the community. Single tickets cost $75, while couples get a reduced rate of $125.
The week concludes on Oct. 12, with the Drive 4 the Cause golf classic at Indian Hills Country Club. Teams of four will not only enjoy a round of golf, but they’ll receive two meals, access to an exclusive shopping experience, and they’re invited to the closing scoring party. Additionally, there will be a shootout to win a new 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Team spots for this event cost $2,600.
