On August 1st and 2nd, Moon Brook Country Club in Jamestown will once again play host to two days of fun and fundraising. Featuring twenty-five LPGA professional golfers, Monday’s LINKS Charity Pro-Am golf tournament will begin with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. Later that evening, LINKS Charity will move indoors for the annual “LINKing Together” Banquet & Silent Auction which begins at 6:00 p.m. On Tuesday, LINKS Charity will once again feature the traditional four-person golf scramble (shotgun start at 9:00 a.m.), made special by the participation of LPGA golfers who move from team to team throughout the tournament and who conduct a golf clinic beginning at 8:00 a.m.

LINKS Charity is in its third year of a three-year, $250,000 pledge toward the purchase of a new full field Digital Mammography imaging system in the WCA Center for Imaging & Medical Arts. In 2009 and 2010, LINKS Charity has raised a total of just over $160,000, leaving a goal of $90,000 to be raised in 2011.
