Join us Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Wild Dunes Resort for a tennis and golf fundraiser to benefit the Lowcountry Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Friends of Vicki Hollingsworth present Swing for a Cure: A Tennis & Golf Fundraiser to benefit The Lowcountry Affiliate of Susan G. Komen, Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms.
Vicki Hollingsworth, a long time resident of Isle of Palms who proudly called Wild Dunes her home, lost a stoic battle with breast cancer in April of 2010. It is in memory of Vicki’s legacy that the Hollingsworth family has generously agreed to partner with Swing for a Cure as the event’s title sponsor.
