Deaconess Classic

As women, we are linked by a common threat - breast and gynecological cancer. Despite medical progress, these cancers remain leading killers among women. The best approach to beating these diseases is early detection. Yet, thousands of area women are unable to receive the detection they desperately need. They need your help— help you can provide by simply playing golf.

All of the proceeds from the Deaconess Classic go toward paying for free mammograms and pelvic ultrasounds for women in need in the Tri-State. Your donation will truly help someone in need.

Thanks to the caring and generous people of the Tri-State and our supporters, the Deaconess Classic for Women's Health has accumulated proceeds of more than $1,800,000. These funds have helped to provide more than 11,000 mammograms and pelvic ultrasounds for women in need in the community. 

The Event

The Deaconess Classic for Women's Health is a volunteer-led women's golf tournament committed to increasing awareness of women's health and the importance of early detection and raise funds for the health care of women. A morning golf clinic led by an LPGA member, brunch, afternoon golf scramble, and evening dinner are all included in the event. See photos from our most recent event, below.
