Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) March 9, 2011
In a community best known for its active lifestyle, pristine golf courses and lavish homes, The Polo Club of Boca Raton has been rapidly gaining recognition for their good will and charity. This February, Polo Club members raised an astonishing $110, 000 for breast cancer research during their annual Play for P.I.N.K charity events. "This is the most amount raised by any one club in the state of Florida," said Laura Lassman, President and Founder of Play for P.I.N.K.
Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. "This disease has reached the hearts of our Members, many of them are survivors or have lost someone close to them from it," said Alex Raimondi, General Manager of the Polo Club. "Our committees volunteered countless hours and have worked extremely hard to make these events such a big success."
The month long events consisted of both Men's and Ladies' 18-hole Golf Tournaments, A luncheon fashion show by Saks Fifth Avenue of Boca Raton and finally a Spa/Tennis 3k walk-run followed by a tennis round robin, children activities and BBQ.
"We've been overwhelmed by the phenominal response and the compassionate concern of The Polo Club community and its dedicated staff in embracing our Play for P.I.N.K. charity events. The committees and staff worked extremely hard and the Membership rewarded our efforts and helped us exceed all expectations. We are so proud of our club and committee," said Rebecca Gross, Play for P.I.N.K committee chair person at the Polo Club of Boca Raton.
