We are getting ready for you! Golfers, sponsors, and donors are gearing up for the 2022 Drive for a Cure.  We will be ready, and we hope you are ready too! The Four Person Team Scramble will take place on Friday, February 25, 2022, at the East Lake Woodlands Country Club.  Arrival, check-in, and pre-round snacks begin at 10:00 AM with the Opening Ceremony at 11:00 AM and an 11:30 AM shotgun start. There will be flights for women, men, and mixed foursomes.  You may form your own foursome, or be paired by the Pro Shop and Tournament Committee. The cost is $100.00 (if paid before February 18, 2022; or $115.00 if paid after February 18, 2022) and it covers golf, cart, range, a variety of snacks, and food available during the day. All costs include a contribution to our charities.

Last year, in the U.S., there were an estimated 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 49,290 new cases of in situ breast cancer among women resulting in 43,600 breast cancer deaths (1:8). Although breast cancer in men is rare, it does happen. In 2021, there were an estimated 2650 new cases among men in the U.S. resulting in 530 deaths (1:883). 

East Lake Woodlands Drive for a Cure supports local efforts to spread awareness about breast health, assist with breast cancer screening, provide diagnostic services and treatment, and provide short-term financial assistance to patients undergoing cancer treatment. The event supports Love Thy Neighbor (L.Y.N.) Fund, which provides financial assistance to breast cancer patients in active treatment and recovery in Pinellas and Pasco Counties. Our event supports the Morton Plant Mease Mammography Voucher Program (MVP) which provides screening, diagnostic and treatment for uninsured or underinsured patients in Pinellas County. Since 2007 the Drive has raised over $430,000. This year we have set our sights on the $500,000 mark for the organizations we support. Participation and sponsorship is very important to this effort, and there are many opportunities available to help us meet our goals. Come play with us on our beautiful, top-quality golf courses; you’ll have a wonderful time and you will be instrumental in supporting this very worthwhile cause.
