On Wednesday, October 18th, 2023, the Tee It Up for the Girls Breast Cancer golf fundraiser, organized by Bonny Lockrem, was held at Fairways of Canton in Canton, GA. The event would help support the Northside Hospital Foundation's Breast Care Fund. Hundreds of ladies, dressed in pink from head to toe, were in attendance to show their support and play 18 holes of golf.

Numerous breast cancer-themed pink raffle baskets, donated by the ladies, lined the Fairways of Canton Golf Club entrance. The winners would be chosen at the luncheon and presentation following the golf outing.

Once out on the scenic course, the participants were presented with multiple "Hole In One Prize Holes", donated by sponsors of the event, in which ladies could win prizes like a golf club car, Callaway golf clubs, Omaha Steaks for a year and a Mastercard gift card.

The event raised a total of $13,616 towards the Northside Hospital Foundation Breast Care Fund.

Funds raised will benefit the Northside Hospital Foundation Breast Care Fund and will help provide almost 110 screening mammograms for underinsured women in the Cherokee County community over the next year.

Last year, the Northside Hospital Foundation Breast Care Fund provided 2,600+ screening mammograms for underinsured women in the community
(240 of those mammograms were for underinsured women in Cherokee County – approximately $30K annually).
