For the past three years members of Wycliffe Golf and Country Club in western Lake Worth have grabbed their tennis rackets and golf clubs to join more than 25,000 athletes across 27 states to participate in Play for P.I.N.K., an organization that donates money raised by country clubs to fund breast cancer research.

“Each year we have been able to raise between $40,000 and $45,000 with our Play for P.I.N.K. tennis and golf tournament and luncheon,” said Gail Spiegel, Wycliffe’s Play for P.I.N.K. committee president. “Last year we had over 200 participants.”

Last year Play for P.I.N.K raised $3.75 million nationally, with 100 percent being donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, according to executive director Stephanie Hamburger.   This year is a little different at Wycliffe because the Wellington location of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza will be having fundraiser events in honor of David Hamburger, one of the country club’s members who died last August.
