LINKS Charity
In 2013, LINKS Charity is celebrating its 22nd anniversary as dedicated volunteers and corporate sponsors will enable the total amount contributed by LINKS Charity to surpass the $1 million mark.

On July 29th and 30th, 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 second year of a three-year, $300,000 pledge to WCA Hospital toward the purchase of 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis in the WCA Center for Imaging & Medical Arts. This year, all proceeds will once again aid in the local detection of breast cancer through the purchase of this enhanced technology.
