Governors Club golfers help Lineberger Center
More than 170 people took part in a golf tournament and luncheon organized by the Governors Club Womens Golf Association of Chapel Hill. UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center received almost $10,000 in proceeds from the event.
We decided we wanted to keep the proceeds local, said Donna Galer, who with Ginny Ware and Sharon Livingston formed the organizing committee for the clubs event.
The day featured a presentation on aging and cancer by UNC Lineberger associate director Ned Sharpless.
It was great to hear about research here in our backyard, said Elston Miles, the GCWGA president. Event participants were so eager to ask Dr. Sharpless questions that we had to bring the luncheon to a close or we would have been there all afternoon.Carrboro seeks volunteers for July 4
