Swing for the Cure
A golf and tennis fundraising event supporting the fight against breast cancer
Charleston, SC – The Lowcountry Affiliate of Susan G. Komen announces Swing for the Cure, a weekend fundraising event on Oct. 2-3 featuring golf and tennis tournaments, a cocktail reception, a silent auction and an oyster roast and BBQ party with all proceeds supporting the fight against breast cancer.
The weekend will kick off with the oyster roast and BBQ party Friday, Oct. 2 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Lettered Olive in Wild Dunes. Tickets are $30 per person or $50 per couple and will include a Lowcountry feast and two complimentary drinks.
The tennis and golf tournaments will be held Saturday, Oct. 3 from 12:30-7 p.m. at the Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms, followed by a cocktail reception featuring a silent auction. Tickets are $100 per person.
“Swing for the Cure is going to be a fun community event to help raise funds to find the cures,” says Taffy Tamblyn, Executive Director of Komen Lowcountry Affiliate. “This will be a great event leading up to the Race and is another way for our Lowcountry community to get involved and make a difference.”
The tennis event is designed as a dynamic team competition, but players can register individually. Each team will have a tennis pro from the Charleston area competing with them. Prizes will be given throughout the day.
The nine-hole golf tournament will be held on the Harbor Course at Wild Dunes. All players will receive a “bounce back pass” to play on the newly renovated, Fazio-designed, 18-hole, Links Course upon its completion valid with a cart fee. The field will be limited to 40 golfers.
