"It was a perfect day because of the weather and the generosity of The Sanctuary Golf Club Ladies Golf and bridge players. Debbie and I are so thrilled with the participation and enthusiasm for Play for P.I.N.K. It was a successful, memorable day," said Brooks stated.

BCRF continues to remain one of the most fiscally responsible charities in the country. It holds a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, its tenth such designation since 2002. Additionally, BCRF is the only cancer organization designated as "A+" by Charity Watch. The numbers speak for themselves. One hundred percent of the Play for P.I.N.K. proceeds is donated to BCRF.

"With a portfolio of the world's greatest collective brain trust of more than 200 committed researchers globally, we know that we can find the answers in science - if only we dedicate ourselves to this mission. Thank you to all of the individuals, groups, companies and organizations whose dedication and support enable us to continue to fund the world's most promising research. Together, we can realize a world without breast cancer," said Myra J. Biblowit, president of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
