Help us reach our goal as Teresa & Michael Radzinski will match 2019 donations up to a total of $50,000 through a challenge gift to the Pink Ribbon Golf Classic. Our goal is to raise and donate at least $150,000 since we have few expenses and several of our sponsors have already made commitments to continue their support.

In this our 13th year, we are even more focused than ever as we raise funds for Mayo Clinic-Jacksonville and Baptist Medical Center Beaches breast cancer research and related services. Specifically, this year’s donations will purchase additional mammography units at Baptist Beaches and support research on the use of advanced genomic sequencing to develop targeted therapies for high risk patients at Mayo right here in Jacksonville.

This year will be a little different in that our next Cocktail Party & Auction and Pink Ribbon Golf Classic will be delayed until October 2020 while our Founding Partner, Ponte Vedra Inn & Club undertakes a major renovation of the Ocean Course as well as other projects across the property. When these events return, they will be refreshed and The Pink Ribbon Golf Classic will be teeing it up on the newly renovated Ocean Course not long after reopening.

We will still hold the David Yurman Trunk Show Thursday, Nov. 7th through Saturday, Nov. 9th in which 10% of sale proceeds are donated to The Pink Ribbon. We will also be holding awareness and fundraising events at The Shoppes of Ponte Vedra and Sawgrass Village in the fall.
 

Upcoming Events

    

Flag Day (Breast Cancer Awareness)

 

Supporters are encouraged to share their well wishes for a donation of $20 per flag. Every penny raised is donated to LOCAL breast cancer research and related services. The flags help increase awareness and show community support at each of our events by lining the Cocktail Party entrance, fairways at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, entrances to Sawgrass Village on Flag Day, or Strolling the Shoppes of Ponte Vedra. Special thanks to Sawgrass Village/Genesis REA, Publix, & Hilton Garden Inn for helping us get the word out.

GOAL FOR 2018 – MET AND EXCEEDED

After eleven years of hard work and tremendous support we have again hit the ground running and are hoping to raise a record-setting $300,000 this year. Our contribution to Baptist Medical Center Beaches will help purchase a PET/CT scanner for the Wilson Cancer Center. Currently, PET scans are only offered one day per week via a mobile unit. This type of scan has proven particularly useful in evaluating a patient’s response to therapy, specifically, chemotherapy for locally advanced breast carcinoma and metastatic disease, reassessing breast cancer stages, and problem solving when conventional imaging results are vague or ambiguous.

Our contribution to Mayo Clinic-Jacksonville will continue to support The Jacoby Center for Breast Health. Our support enables the team at Mayo to utilize funds for patients and research that is being conducted in patients and through the clinic. This includes filling unmet needs and bringing patients innovative and new therapies, such as increasing DigniCap Service (an FDA-approved scalp cooling system that reduces chemotherapy-induced hair loss in patients with breast cancer), supporting clinical trials (that include the ongoing study of anti-estrogen therapy), and enhancing the acupuncture and massage pilot study (each highly sought after services).

To learn more about our contributions over the past eleven years, please see the information offered in the About Us section of our website.

Each year, the all-volunteer Pink Ribbon Golf Classic Committee reviews and then chooses where donated funds will go based on requests made by Mayo Clinic-Jacksonville and Baptist Medical Center Beaches. We work tirelessly to minimize expenses – achieving a remarkably low expense to income percentage of 13% in 2017. Join us in the fight against breast cancer and attend one or all of our events. Become a partner, sponsor or friend.  Donate your time and/or talent. We could not do what we do without you! Many, many thanks.
