Fore Her helps local breast cancer patients one golf game at a time. The organization raises funds through their signature annual event, the Fore Her Golf Outing, to provide financial assistance for breast cancer patients and their families. The women have the freedom to use the money however they see fit and can choose to remain anonymous. No strings attached.
Amy Walsh founded Fore Her in Santa Rosa Beach in honor of her mother who lost her battle to cancer. Fore Her aims to fill the gap in our community for women who do not have family or the resources to have people raise money for them during their time of need.
“We want people to ask for help and not be ashamed and embarrassed to ask for it,” said Amy.
The Fore Her Golf Outing is held every October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Besides being the only tournament where the golf carts wear bras, the Fore Her Golf Outing features a Dress Like a Girl hole where golfers drape themselves in boas and boulder holders. Golfers also enjoy hole in one prizes, food and drink samples on the course, breakfast before tee off, lunch after the outing, a silent auction, and the helicopter golf ball drop.
Fore Her does a wonderful job of raising awareness for women’s health, while celebrating what it means to be a survivor. That’s why the Fore Her Golf Outing is the most fun you’ll ever have on the golf course, all while raising money for breast cancer patients in financial need.
Whether they’re dropping off baskets of comfort items at local oncology centers, purchasing new tires so patients can travel safely to treatment, or Christmas gifts for families who have no income because their mom is too sick to work, one thing’s for sure. Fore Her is making a difference in the lives of women who need it most.
