American Cancer Society Pink Ribbon Golf Classic
#1 American Cancer Society Single-Day Ladies Golf Tournament in the United States
The American Cancer Society’s Pink Ribbon Golf Classic is undoubtedly one of the organization’s most successful annual events in the nation! It is planned and played by women and has raised well over $2 million since its start in 2006. The 2018 Classic aims to raise another $350,000 to help the American Cancer Society continue its extensive work in cancer research, education, patient services, and advocacy.
Each year, the Pink Ribbon Golf Classic includes two main events: the Pink Party and the golf tournament. The Pink Party is a cocktail reception with a high-end auction, delicious food, and a program celebrating cancer survivors. A couple days later, the golf tournament hosts 128 players on one of the finest courses in Georgia! Attendees of these events include local women golfers, corporate sponsors, plus Atlanta-area business and philanthropic leaders. Most importantly, all proceeds help advance the American Cancer Society’s work nationally and locally through programs like the Gwinnett Medical Center Patient Navigator… Join us as we give, golf and fight against cancer!

Additional honors to Martha Ashworth, The Heart of the Pink Ribbon, & Charlotte Barge, Pink Ribbon Achievement. Pat Lane received the Martha & John Adams award for distinguished excellence for her leadership of The Pink Ribbon Classic.
