Pretty in Pink: 10th Sandpiper Bay Tournament Fights Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and for the 10th consecutive year, Angela Nicholson helped jump-start the effort to defeat a virus that impacts 1 in 8 U.S. women. 

On Wednesday, September 27, 136 women, all of them impacted in some form or fashion by breast cancer, packed Sandpiper Bay Golf Club for the 10th annual Pretty in Pink Foundation golf tournament. All the proceeds went to Pretty in Pink, an organization that serves North Carolinians diagnosed with breast cancer that have limited or no access to health insurance. 

The tournament capped a three-day series of events that also included a fashion show, dinner and silent auction. The money raised this year will push the 10-year total over 0,000. 

That’s a sum Nicholson could’ve hardly imaged when she helped launch the event in 2008 after a friend and fellow Sandpiper resident was stricken with breast cancer. Over the years, the event contributed money to a variety of breast cancer related causes, before settling on the Pretty in Pink Foundation.

“If [breast cancer patients] have to make a choice between feeding their family or going without treatment, they are going to go without treatment,” Nicholson said. “That's why we help Pretty in Pink.”

Nicholson has led the event since the beginning, but she is hardly alone in making things happen. She is joined by two other committee members and a large team of volunteers. 

They start working on the event in January to help make a difference in the lives of women and men (did you know 1 in a 1,000 men are diagnosed with breast cancer?) who are battling the disease. 

Nicholson and her team secured 42 restaurants, 14 golf courses, and nearly 100 other business sponsors, in addition to the nearly 100 individuals who contributed to the effort.
