Public Service Announcement raising Breast Cancer Awareness

United Breast Cancer Foundation was proud to be a featured organization at the 100th PGA Championship which concluded this past Sunday at Bellerive Country Club in Town and Country, suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. PGA Championship is the final leg of Golf’s Grand Slam and traditionally boasts Golf’s top 100 world-ranked players, from reigning Masters Champion, Sergio Garcia, to international icons like Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jon Daly and Dustin Johnson.

PGA Championship 2018 FINALThe Official 100th PGA Championship Commemorative Souvenir Program features UBCF’s print Public Service Announcement (PSA) on page 141. UBCF’s PSA highlights a sweet image of a mother teaching her child how to play golf, shares educational facts about male and female breast cancer as well as UBCF’s Program s. The PSA encourages PGA fans to get involved and support Breast Cancer Patients & Families. The Official 100th PGA Championship Commemorative Souvenir Program was sold at Bellerive Country Club during all rounds of the PGA Championship. In addition, the publication was available Nationwide at major newsstands and retailers at a cover cost of $10. National exposure with pass-along readership is estimated at over 500,000!

This year’s PGA Championship is one for the record books with up and comer Brooks Koepka winning his third major at the 100th PGA Championship, shooting a major championship record-tying 264 over 72 holes at Bellerive Country Club. Brooks’ double victories in the U.S. Open and the PGA Championship is a first since Tiger Woods accomplished the feat in 2000.

Amazingly enough, Brooks Koepka was successful at holding off Tiger Woods this past Sunday, while Tiger was able to put together one of his best comeback rounds of golf since his off-and-on return to competitive form in the PGA. Tiger was in form like days of the past with his back nine run up the board – it was close, so close. Tiger even gave his famous Winning Right Fist Pump for his second-place finish after one of the best rounds of golf from Tiger Woods in some time.

UBCF’s Executive Director, Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni shared, “UBCF is honored to be a featured charity at the 100th PGA Championship. It’s so important that we raise awareness of breast cancer for both women and men – we’re here for those in need. UBCF extends congratulations to Brooks Koepka on his impressive win and congratulations to Tiger Woods on his unforgettable return to the green.”
