The theme for this year’s tournament was “Bellas and Boots – Saddle Up for Cancer” and featured a catered lunch following the tournament at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Seaford.
The evening prior, both golfers and non-golfers alike enjoyed a western-style cocktail party held at the Hooper’s Landing Golf Course. Guest attended the event dressed in theme and enjoyed an evening of fun including hors d’oeuvres, games and a silent auction offering several great items to bid on.
The Seaford Ladies 9 Hole Golf Association’s members have a passion and commitment to raise money for cancer care. On August 7, the ladies presented the Nanticoke Health Foundation with a check in the amount of $17,327 to benefit the Allen Cancer Care Center at Nanticoke.

Many local businesses and community members also rallied to support the cause through various sponsorship opportunities and donating and/or purchasing silent auction items. All proceeds will be used to assist local cancer patients at the Allen Cancer Center, which is expanding its infusion center to meet the growing cancer treatment needs in the community.
The Nanticoke Health Foundation would like to wish a special thank you to all the members of the Seaford Ladies 9 Hole Golf Association for their passion for making a difference in the lives of cancer patients in our community and their continued support and dedication to Nanticoke Health Services.
