Jamestown, New York (Wednesday, June 19, 2013)—LINKS Charity is making preparations for its fundraising events at Moon Brook Country Club (Jamestown) on Monday, July 29th and Tuesday, July 30th.

Beginning Monday morning (July 29th) with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start, the 22nd annual LINKS Charity LPGA Pro-Am will feature twenty-five LPGA touring professionals teamed with four amateur golfers. A limited number of spaces ($350 per golfer) are currently available for individuals and foursomes interested in golfing. As in years past, LINKS Charity anticipates a full field for this popular golf tournament.

Later that evening, the “LINKing Together” Banquet & Auction will begin at 6:00 p.m. Seats are available for this special event ($50 per person) featuring the ever-popular LINKS Auction, dinner provided by Moon Brook Country Club, a guest speaker and special entertainment. LINKS Charity is now accepting donated items for its live, silent, and basket auctions.

The following morning (Tuesday, July 30th) the LINKS Golf Scramble begins with an 8:00 a.m. golf clinic with LPGA professionals followed by a 9:00 a.m. shotgun start. Spaces ($250 per golfer) are available for individuals and foursomes interested in golfing.

Spearheaded by lead sponsor Truck-Lite and major sponsors Cummins, United Refining Company, The Bilicki Law Firm, and ALSTAR EMS, along with associate sponsors, Veracity Benefits and Jamestown Savings Bank, LINKS Charity has taken a leadership role in the local fight against breast cancer with a $300,000 pledge toward the purchase of 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis. In 2012, LINKS Charity successfully raised $100,000. In total, LINKS Charity has now raised $978,000 toward local cancer care efforts and will surpass the $1 million mark in 2013.
