LAKE SUNAPEE COUNTRY CLUB WOMEN'S GOLF ASSOCIATION RAISES $28,000 FOR NLH IN SUPPORT OF BREAST CANCER DETECTION

The Lake Sunapee Country Club Women's Golf Association hosted the 8th Annual Mammography Golf Tournament on August 8 at the Lake Sunapee County Club. The charity tournament helped to raise over $28,000 for the New London Hospital Mammography Fund.

Established in 1990, the Mammography Fund provides financial support to women who would not otherwise be able to afford recommended diagnostic testing. For eligible patients, the fund covers screening mammograms as well as follow-up mammograms, breast ultrasounds, breast biopsies and related physician fees. A committee of 13 women, with the help of their families and friends, organized the event- which, through sponsor support, golfer registrations, player donations, raffle donations, silent and live auctions helped to raise $27,317 by the end of the tournament. Continued generosity from community members raised the total to over $28,000 in the days following the event.
