Golf Tournament 2012

Annual Golf Tournament


The First Annual Sharon Leigh Cancer Organization Golf Tournament

Sharon with Kelli and Mike from Cedar-Sinai
Was an amazing success!
The fundraising effort was very successful and lots of fun was had by everyone. We can't wait until next year!

June 29, 2012 proved to be an incredibly successful fundraising event considering the fact that the tournament, held at Monarch Dunes, was a first time happening. The tournament, the committee, and sponsors were able to raise over $40,000. The purpose of the tournament is for awareness and research for early detection of Ovarian cancer.

This was our signature fundraiser benefiting Cedars Sinai ovarian research.

Dear Friend:
If you thought you could perhaps help some of the 70% of women (wives, sisters, daughters, granddaughters) currently diagnosed with ovarian cancer too late to be saved, would you do it?

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest of the gynecological cancers, causing more deaths in the U.S. each year than all other gynecological cancers combined. The five-year survival rate is over 90% and long-term prognosis is good for those women diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Stage 1.

But only 30% of women diagnosed are still in Stage 1. The Sharon Leigh Cancer Organization, Inc., a nonprofit, was created on the Central California Coast to raise research funds and spread the word about the importance of early detection for ovarian cancers.

Now you can help increase the chances that women will benefit from early detection and that research break-throughs for ovarian cancer will emerge. The Sharon Leigh Cancer Organization is establishing its first outreach effort and fundraiser. An estimated 25,000 Central Coast women will be educated about the benefits of early detection of ovarian cancer through promotion of the event. Net proceeds from the inaugural fundraiser will benefit Cedars-Sinai ovarian research. Cedars-Sinai is a national leader in research supporting early detection of women’s cancers.

The First Annual “Ovarian Cancer Benefit Golf Tournament”, hosted by the Sharon Leigh Cancer Organization, will take place Friday, June 29, 2012, at the Monarch Dunes Golf Course. We ask that you consider helping us increase the number of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer in time for effective treatment. Please consider a donation to the Sharon Leigh Cancer Organization or a sponsorship for the First Annual Ovarian Cancer Benefit Golf Tournament.
