Annual Kay Yow Cancer Fund Golf Classic
Lane & Associates Family Dentistry (LAA) had the pleasure of sponsoring the registration of this year’s Annual Kay Yow Cancer Fund Golf Classic. As Mission Partners of the Kay Yow Cancer Foundation LAA has aided in the uniting of communities in the fight against cancer.
On August 21st golfers and supporters arrived at the beautiful Carolina Hotel in Pinehurst, NC to register for the next day’s golf classic. The Nike swag each golfer received did not disappoint; pullovers, hats, and shoes! Lane & Associates had to get in on the action and gifted each golfer with a backpack filled with golf balls and tees, a cooling towel, and healthy snacks to keep the golfers going.
Kay Yow Cancer Fund Reception Did Not Disappoint
That night, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund celebrated with an outstanding welcome reception at the hotel. Festive pink up lighting lit the room as you navigated through multiple food stations which included a salad bar, taco bar, charcuterie display, an amazing paella filled with seafood, and so much more. Let’s not forget dessert, the pink-themed desserts definitely deserve an honorable mention, strawberry shortcake cupcake, cheesecake, and ridiculously appetizing shortbread cookies.
Games and a pink paddle auction entertained guests as more money was raised to continue the fight against all cancers affecting women. The auction alone raised over $170,00 dollars.
“It was amazing to see all of these people give. I feel so blessed to be a part of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund through Lane & Associates. It has become near and dear to my heart; the people and the mission.” says Stephanie Klein, Marketing Director.
One by one women took the stage to share stories of life and loss. Impactful stories of how the fund has helped them through their cancer journey with lessons of how important early detection is. Lane has worked with Stephanie Glance, outgoing CEO and lifetime board member for many years and we were excited when she was presented the Kay Yow Cancer Fund Impact Award!
The night continued with tears, hugs, empowerment, and of course dancing. We cannot wait until next year!
