This Friday, August 9th, the
Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition and Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse present
the 6th annual Celebration of Life TBCC Classic at the Hermitage Golf Course.
Bates Nursery is providing pink wave petunias that will be displayed in the shape of the breast cancer ribbon on the back of the 17th green on the General's Retreat course in honor of those who have had breast cancer. Proceeds of the tounament fund breast cancer research and educational programs. For more information visit the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition website.
Another excellent way to support breast cancer research is to participate in the plant for the cure program by purchasing select plants (usually pink flowering) that are marked with the plant for the cure emblem. A portion of the proceeds go towards breast cancer research. Look for these plants at your local nursery in spring 2003. For more information visit the Plant for the Cure website.
