Join Us As We Play a Round of Golf on April 24, 2009 in Support of the 2.4 Million Women Across America Fighting Breast Cancer. The 1st Annual Betty T Wooten Breast Cancer Awareness Golf Tournament will be Held at the Glenn Dale Country Club Located at 11501 Old Prospect Hill Road, Glenn Dale, MD 20769.

In January of this year, our community lost one of its pillars, Mrs. Betty T Wooten of Accokeek, MD, to breast cancer. The Betty T Wooten Foundation and the 1st Annual Betty T Wooten Breast Cancer Awareness Golf Tournament were established to honor the life and legacy of Mrs. Wooten and to support the 2.4 million women in America fighting breast cancer.
Betty T Wooten's pursuit to improving and enriching her community were demonstrated by her service in many capacities, including twenty years as a nurse and educator at both the University of the District of Columbia the University of Maryland, and her positions as Director of Employee Health at the DC Department of Health and Human Services and Nursing Coordinator at the University of the District of Columbia.
Like too many women in our community, Mrs. Wooten lost her life to her fight with breast cancer. However, her family, friends, co-workers and church members are dedicating to continuing her life-long commitment to health and education.
Join us, as we remember Mrs. Betty T Wooten, and support the 2.4 million women in America living with breast cancer. The Tournament will have a Shot Gun start at 1PM to be followed by the start of the Card Tournament for all non-golfers. There will be free giveaways, a Hole-In-One Contest for a free car and other prizes, an Award Ceremony and dinner. Registration is $100/golfer and participants are encouraged to register their foursome by April 21, 2009. All proceeds will be donated to the Avon Breast Cancer Foundation.
