Play for Pink. PC: Kapalua Golf

Troon Celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness with Play for Pink Day recently in West Maui.

In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Kapalua Golf held a fundraising outing on Oct. 21, on the Bay Course in Kapalua. The event raised and donated $6,233 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Play for P.I.N.K.

More than 140 golfers participated in this fun day of charity which included discounted aeration recovery green fees and a Par Three “Hit the Green Challenge” on Hole 15.

Funds were raised from a percentage of green fees, an on course par 3 challenge, and a raffle in the golf shop.

Specials at the Bay Course golf shop and post-round festivities and specially themed “PINK” goodies at Taverna Restaurant helped round out this day of fun for a good cause.


“Mahalo to everyone who joined us and supported the event, especially the golfers who participated and our partner restaurant, Taverna,” said Assistant General Manager, Tim Dietrich PGA.


Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology, Knowledge, or PFP) is a grassroots organization dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research through lifestyle and sporting events. PFP’s commitment is to contribute 100% of all proceeds to its sole beneficiary, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to fund the world’s top researchers.
