Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Held yearly in June at the Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell, N.J., the golf outing is continually one of the most successful fundraising efforts of CBCF.  116 golfers participated in the 2018 Classic, which also featured an exciting $18,000 Chip Off and raffle drawing for a brand new Ford Mustang convertible.

The festivities concluded with a reception dinner where two hundred guests were addressed by Dr. Larry Norton, the foundation’s scientific advisor, and breast cancer expert Dr. Elizabeth Comen (also from MSKCC).  Dr. Philip Paty, a surgical oncologist at MSKCC with special training in cancers of the colon, also spoke to attendees.

“This year’s golf classic was one of the most prosperous on record thanks to the large number of participants, and the tremendous generosity of our donors, dedicated business partners, volunteers and community leaders,” said Andrew B. Abramson, Treasurer and Co-Founder of CBCF, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. “The outing is unquestionably our keystone event and the perfect springboard to our fundraising efforts during the October Breast Cancer Awareness month.” Continue reading
