Play for Pink: Fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research

Play for Pink Breast Cancer Fundraiser Sugar Mtn

August 25, 2021
Sugar Mountain goes pink! Join an all-day pink extravaganza for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation at the Sugar Mountain Tennis & Golf Club. The day includes a tennis tournament, golf tournament, games, silent auction, bake sale, raffle, Crazy in Pink costume contest and more. The day ends at Grillin’ & Chillin’ with live music and dancing!

All proceeds go to Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology, Knowledge) that raises funds for research through sporting and lifestyle events across the country. Their efforts raise $3 million annually — and 100% of that goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Sugar Mountain Plays for Pink 2020

Here are the smiling faces at the 2020 Sugar Mountain Play for Pink.

Play for P.I.N.K. was founded in 1996. Once a small initiative held in three states, PFP organizes 300 events across 30 states with over 30,000 annual participants. PFP has donated $65+ million dollars to its sole beneficiary, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Thanks to underwriting from The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign, PFP donates 100% of its proceeds to BCRF. Play for P.I.N.K. is currently funding 19 BCRF research projects, (with collaboration from 24 researchers), and is one of BCRF’s largest annual donors.
