WPFT at our event if you wish to donate directly to them on an individual or club

and Education) was co-founded by Elaine Lustig and Sheila Solomon in 1993 in
partnership with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando, a part of Orlando Health.
WPFT is a volunteer organization comprised of local women who dedicate their time,
financial resources and efforts to raising awareness and financial support for the
early detection, prevention and ultimately a cure of cancers affecting women.
Since its inception, WPFT has raised more than $8 million through signature golf
and tennis tournaments and a variety of other events throughout the year. Funds
support breast cancer research and programs at M. D. Anderson ? Orlando, including
the purchase of technologies that provide for the immediate diagnosis and education
of other forms of female-related cancers. More information is available at wpft.org.

The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. U.S. News &
World Report recently ranked M. D. Anderson Cancer Center as the top cancer
treatment center in the U.S. and has ranked it as one of the top two cancer centers
for the past 13 years. Orlando Health, a 1,780-bed community-owned, Florida
