FARMINGTON — The women of Wilson Lake Country Club held their annual Martha Webber Breast Cancer Fundraiser Tournament on Sept. 13, raising $700 for the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center, a program of Franklin Memorial Hospital.
The tournament is held each year on the second Saturday of September at Wilson Lake Country Club.
Fifteen participants took part in the tournament and also donated raffle items. Volunteers John Wentzell, Russell Pratt and Neil Stinneford additionally had roles to make the event successful.
This was the 14th year that Anne Nemi and Nancy Pratt have co-hosted the tournament. Over that period of time, the women of Wilson Lake Country Club have donated nearly $25,000 in Martha Webber’s name.
This year’s winning team included Doris Tutlis, Linda Baril, Sharon Cullenberg, and Eileen Reading with a net score of 52. Eileen Reading won the longest drive and Mary Olson prevailed in the closest-to-the-pin contest.
“We would like to thank all of the men and women who participated, as well as those who donated time, funds, and raffle items,” said Jill Gray, FCHN community relations and fund development manager. “At a luncheon following the tournament, Kelly Alley, a breast care support nurse at the center, explained to the women how the money may be used to support those with breast cancer.”
The Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center provides timely access to state-of-the-art breast cancer screening, diagnostic, clinical, and care support services. The center, with locations in Farmington and Livermore Falls, memorializes the Carrabassett Valley resident who died from breast cancer.
