The 13th annual Holy Cross Health Golf Classic presented by The Harry T. Mangurian, Jr. Foundation was a huge success, raising nearly $200,000 for the Partners in Breast Health Program at the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center.
The Partners in Breast Health Program at the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center is committed to promoting early diagnosis of breast cancer so that patients can receive timely and appropriate care. The funds raised during the Holy Cross Health Golf Classic benefit this program, ensuring that underserved and uninsured women in Broward County have access to breast health education, health assessments and mammograms.

“Studies show that underserved and uninsured women are more likely to die from breast cancer due to lack of screenings and late-stage diagnoses. Our Partners in Breast Health program is about reversing those statistics,” said President and CEO of Holy Cross Health Mark Doyle. “We are truly thankful for the efforts of our sponsors, volunteers and golfers. Together we are making a difference in the lives of so many women in our community.”
The success of the 13th annual Holy Cross Health Golf Classic is a testament to the dedication and generosity of the many individuals and organizations who participated. The Harry T. Mangurian, Jr. Foundation, Stiles Construction, Goldman Sachs, Gunther Motor Company, Doug and Alice Donn, Dave & Bette Lauer, John and Priscilla Oughton, Il Mulino, Matt and Katherine Lee, Sandy and John Harrington and Sheri and Don Whittington were among the many sponsors who helped to make the event a success.
