PickleballCentral likes to acknowledge pickleball clubs who give back to the community. We extend our appreciation and our All Heart Award to the Lake Wildwood Pickleball Club for their efforts to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
On October 1, 2016 the Lake Wildwood Pickleball Club supported the fight against breast cancer with their 1st Annual “Go Pink & Dink” Pickleball Tournament.
They had 55 teams enter, and raised over $6800 for Breast Cancer Awareness.
100% of the proceeds went to support the Breast Imaging Center at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital in Grass Valley, CA. This organization has the recognition of being in the top five centers of excellence for breast cancer treatment in the nation!
Kimberly Parker, from the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, was presented with the amount the club raised. She was amazed!
Everybody wins at this kind of event. They plan to expand the tournament to 2 days next year. Thank you, Lake Wildwood Pickleball Club, for reaching out to your community in such a fun and rewarding way.
