Colleton River Plantation Club is proud to announce that the “Play for P.I.N.K.” event it hosted October 7, 2012, on its highly acclaimed Nicklaus Course, raised more than $11,000 for breast cancer research.
According to Colleton’s “Play for P.I.N.K.” Committee, including Gail Kraemer, Mary Rydzel, Sandy Wooster and Jean Drake, Colleton’s “Play for P.I.N.K.” event has raised more than $166,000 for breast cancer research since its inception in 2006. The committee attributes its success to members’ ongoing support of this worthy cause, as well as the significant efforts of Colleton’s dedicated staff.
