6 years ago a group of women in the 18-Hole Ladies Golf Association at Carmel Country Club came up with a wonderful way to raise thousands of dollars to help bring cutting-edge cancer treatments to Charlotte and the Carolinas.
Many of the women in this tight-knit group and their families have been touched by cancer and so far through their hard work and dedication, they’ve raised more than $150,000 for the Levine Cancer Institute.
Ivester Jackson real estate agent Leslie Fisher is involved with C4CC and says funds are far-reaching “They work on clinical trials and research for a variety of cancers, not just one specific one, so the nice thing is our money impacts so many people!”
Two C4CC recognition plaques have been placed in Levine Cancer Institute public spaces including The Phase 1 Clinical Trials Family Waiting Room which was dedicated in August 2014 and another plaque was added to the LCI Pharmacy in 2016.
Want to get involved? You can still attend the 6th Annual C4CC Dinner Reception/Silent Auction on Thursday, October 5th at 5:30 PM at Carmel Country Club – contact Margie Eades (C4CCcancer@aol.com or 704-236-0920) for details before the Friday, September 29th deadline.
You can also make a financial donation to Levine Cancer Institute’s Phase 1 Clinical Trials at http://www.givecarolinas.org/C4CC
The 6th Annual Charlotteans 4 Cancer Cure Golf Tournament will be held this year on October 5th, at Carmel Country Club.
