The Lake Wildwood Women's Golf Tournament, which took place in October, raised $5,000 for the Breast Care Fund at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation. Funds raised from the golf tournament will be utilized to help purchase equipment specifically used by breast cancer patients undergoing radiation oncology treatments at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital's Community Cancer Center.
Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation wishes to thank tournament planning committee members Kris Weinberg, Jane Butler, Ali McKeon and Linda Wisley for their hard work and dedication to advancing breast health care in our community. Thanks to everyone who participated in this tournament.
