Pink balls raise thousands

Parque da Floresta recently hosted the Pink Ball Golf Competition to raise money for the Mobile Mammography Unit for the Algarve and succeeded in raising 7,008.93 euros. Following two days of heavy rain, the 100 golfers taking part enjoyed a glorious sunny day of golf, followed by dinner and entertainment and an auction. The organisers, Lynette and Kelvin Whittaker, were ably assisted by Alan and Gloria Poolley and Bob and Ann Woodworth and are already planning next year’s event. The organisers of Mamamaratona would like to remind anyone who has not yet sent their sponsorship money, or still wishes to make a donation that they have until December 31, 2003 to contribute to Mamamaratona 3 at the Associação Oncológica do Algarve, Largo das Mouras Velhas, no.16, 8000 – 139 Faro.
