Waukewan Golf Ladies donate $1,000 to American Heart Association

CENTER HARBOR — On October 1, Waukewan Ladies Golf League presented a check to Cheryl Andrews, the New Hampshire representative for the Go Red for Women movement of the American Heart Association.

The Ladies League had sponsored their 40th Annual Golf Invitational in September and had themed it Heart of a Woman in honor of this charity. Traditionally, the league selects a charitable organization to share in the seasonal profits. This year the League voted to donate $1,000 to New Hampshire's Go Red for Women. At the golf event, each of the contestants was given a red dress lapel pin as a reminder that heart disease is not uncommon among women. One in three women die of some form of heart related disease. The red dress represents the ability of all women to improve their heart health and live longer, stronger lives.
