Over 60 members celebrated our end-of-year event at Deal Country Club. It was great to reconnect with our golf friends and to see everyone shine in their non-golf outfits. Members received V.I.P. (Vitally Important Participants) gifts of golf bag charms said to bring good fortune on the course. Members also had their V.I.P. points converted to credit dollars applicable to reduce future Coastal expenditures such as membership renewal dues or golf event costs. You can earn V.I.P points by participating in our chapter events, joining chapter leagues or volunteering on committees or at our events. You can start earning 2023 V.I.P points by renewing your Coastal membership.

Oh, what a glorious P.I.N.K day at Bella Vista Country Club to turn play into seriously supporting breast cancer research. We gathered at 11:00 to enjoy coffee, juice and bagels and to view the wonderful gift baskets, partake in our 50/50 and purchase Mulligans. We engaged in a PINK ball scramble and only those that returned with the PINK ball were eligible for the best team prize. After playing our 18 hole course, we enjoyed cocktails and a delicious buffet dinner. Our sponsors and attendees were quite generous.
While all players had a delightful event, there were winners that should be noted:
Best Team: Chiara Reading, Rachel Cunningham, Judy Chevalier and Linda Sanson
Longest Drive: Chiara Reading
Closet to the Pin: Laura Tarlow
At our Play for P.I.N.K (Prevention, Immediate diagnosis, New technology, Knowledge) we raised $2300 to support the fight against breast cancer. It should be noted that 100% of our funds donated go directly the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
