Hats off to golfers at Color for Care event

Colors for CareDozens of golfers hit the links to help local cancer patients in Racine and Walworth counties! The third annual Color for Care golf event at Geneva National Golf Club was held on Friday, July 29. The golfers helped raise over $10,000 for local Aurora Cancer Care patients. And what’s even more, the funds will be matched 50 percent by the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.

The money will be used specifically on vein finder medical equipment and to enhance the seating area in the new Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic, located inside the Aurora Health Care Southern Lakes facility. The new facility is scheduled to open this October and has been a true community fundraising effort, as part of the Partners in Cancer Care campaign. Local residents, like these golfers, are enhancing the programs and services offered at the clinic, as well as helping to build a new healing garden for patients to relax and receive their care in a tranquil, comforting space.

The new center will provide patients with a full scope of vital cancer services all under one roof and close to home. It will feature 25 medical oncology infusion bays, 10 exam rooms, an outpatient procedure room, as well as space for complementary therapies and support services.

We say “hats off!” to these golfers who are giving back to their community and helping those battling this horrible disease. Thank you!
