Annual Pink Ribbon Classic golf tournament tees off Fri.

(Oct. 22, 2015) The 19th annual Pink Ribbon Golf Classic tees off Friday at the Ocean City Golf Club in Berlin to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
The golf tournament costs $100 per person or $400 for a team of four and includes lunch, 18 holes of golf with a cart, dinner and an official tournament gift bag. In addition, there will be Chinese and silent auctions.
“It’s a ladies-only golf tournament, fellowship and fun for a wonderful cause,” said Event Chairwoman, Nancy Dofflemyer. “Fight the fight for breast cancer.”
Last year, 25 teams competed in the golf classic, raising $20,000 for the American Cancer Society. Dofflemyer said 20 teams had already registered for the 2015 event as of Monday afternoon.
The Pink Ribbon Classic is a scramble format tournament with three divisions based on handicap as well as one fun, non-competing division. There will be prizes including rounds of golf for the longest drive, closest-to-the-pin contest and division winners.
Golfers are urged to register in advance, but can sign up the morning of the tournament at the Ocean City Golf Club, starting at 11 a.m. Lunch catered by Sunset Grille and the Skye Bar will be served at 11:30 a.m. before a noon shotgun start.
After the tournament, a full dinner catered by 32 Palm, Mountaire Chicken and the Original Greene Turtle will be served.
Hole sponsorships and dedication flags can be purchased in honor or memory of loved ones who have battled breast cancer.
Register by calling Dofflemyer at 410-251-6555 or email Or, sign up starting at 11 a.m. the day of the tournament, Friday, Oct. 23, at the Ocean City Golf Club.
The golf tournament is one of several events that make up the Pink Ribbon Classic at the Beach Series, an assortment of local activities to increase breast cancer awareness while raising money for the American Cancer Society.
Also raising money for the campaign is “Glo in the Dark,” a Zumba event, taking place on Monday, Oct. 26, from 5:30-7:15 p.m. at the Ocean Pines Recreation Center.
