Divi Links Awards Breast Cancer Support Group a Generous Donation

The Divine Nine at Divi Links hosted the annual Pink Ribbon Golf Tournament last weekend demonstrating Divi’s commitment to the local cancer awareness & support organizations.

“The pro shop,” says golf executive Willem van Elderen, “has an ongoing program selling Pink Ribbon golf balls, which generates a handsome annual donation. Additionally, several sponsors including Chill and Balashi Beer have pledged a donation as well as De Palm Tours, Diamonds International and DUFRY, local companies who also offered great tournament prizes and raffle opportunities.”

The tournament, in a 2 person scramble format, played 18 holes, and concluded with a gourmet barbeque cookout, on the greens, over cocktails and awards.
