Sorority's "Think Pink" Golf Tournament Tees Off Saturday, April 4
SHREVEPORT, La.—The fifth annual "Think Pink" golf tournament for breast cancer awareness takes place Saturday, April 4 at Olde Oaks Golf Club in Haughton beginning at noon.
Sponsored by the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority at Centenary College, the goal of the event is to raise awareness about the disease that will be diagnosed in almost 200,000 women in the United States this year, with the proceeds to fund breast cancer research, education and scholastic achievement. Last year, the event raised $10,000 with the goal to match or exceed that amount.
Registration begins at 10:30 a.m., lunch at 11 a.m. and a shot-gun start at noon. The format will be best-ball, with four players per team. Registration fee is $55 for students and $115 for all non-students. Registration includes lunch, golf cart, 18 holes of golf and range balls. Members of the top three-winning teams will receive a prize package for each member. There will also be a "Split the Pot" raffle after the tournament.
Organizations interested in becoming a sponsor of the tournament, and those needing additional information should contact Talia Crain at email.
