Mary Blair and the late Sondra “Sandy” Anderson launched their fight against breast cancer 29 years ago with a Pro-Am golf tournament assisted by the Ladies Professional Golf Association. Over the years LINKS Charity has raised more than $1,651,000 to fight cancer in Jamestown, NY in collaboration with UPMC Chautauqua and its predecessor WCA Hospital. Vital equipment has been purchased with the proceeds of this tournament that has saved lives with early detection of many kinds of cancers.
Mary Blair and Elaine Short, chairwomen of the 29th tournament on July 20, 2020 at Moon Brook Country Club, are collaborating with Donna Wilkins of the LPGA tour to plan the event. Mike Roberts will be chairman of the Golf Committee of the tournament.
