Back on the Golf Course for a Pink Cause

For the record, I know nothing of golf.  I can rock a putt putt course, but I’ve never hit a ball on an actual golf course.  This event marked my second golf outing in a 4 week period, so I feel like I should know golf, but no. Nope. Nada. No golf for this girl.  I do however enjoy riding around in the golf carts and absorbing golfer’s etiquette all whilst taking pictures of the game.komen welcomeLike all of the other Komen events, the Pink Ribbon Classic supports breast cancer research. And while I didn’t spend my day with any clowns at this event, I did surround myself with some pretty awesome, friendly people in pink.  Plus, my Josie girl was the Honorary Chair for the event, so it wasn’t like I was going to say no.  I love the Cincinnati Komen ladies!Josie and I

The event was held at the Heritage Club in Mason, Ohio.  Registration opened at 11am; as did the raffles and silent auctions!Komen RegistrationraffleauctionAlongside the raffle prizes and silent auction items, golf participants had the option to purchase mulligans (DEFINITION HERE<-see, I can sound like I know what I’m talking about, but no) and balloons!  I love a good balloon release.balloons12:30pm marked the balloon release and the beginning of the golf portion of the of the golf event.release And so began my challenge: to capture all of the foursomes on the golf course before the game’s end. With the help of my partner in crime for the day (meet Sam,) WE WON (and with time to spare!)  Boy was it HOT and sunshiny!  I actually burned on my right side.  Love those split tans.  Better than the farmers, IMO.Sam and IAlongside the actual golf game, participants were also invited to try their hand at some other skill challenges: Putting Contest, Hit the Banner, Buy a Pro, Closest to the Line, etc…golf

Following the main event, guests were invited back into the clubhouse to revisit the raffles, silents auctions and additional giveaways.

The evening favorites appeared to be the Champagne Raffle (buy a flute of champagne and match your number to win a diamond ring.) Bling!champaignAnd the Party Wagon!  Lot’s of alcohol in that wagon.  The raffle tickets for this one were given based on one’s arm length; which entertained me quite a bit.liquorAnd because I do enjoy hanging out with the Komen people, here is a collection of these beautiful individuals!Komen peepsOh! And did I mention the food at this event?  Like all of it?   YUMM-O!foodies dessertAnd what Komen event would be complete without THE pink fire engine?!pink truckSo, there you have it.  The next (and my most favoritest) Komen event is just around the corner!  Photographing the Race for the Cure is beyond explanation.  The best I can do is to simply say that I LOVE it!  If you are interested in participating this year, you can sign up by following this link.  <<<— Do it.  You know you want to!
