A letter from Hilary

I am filled with gratitude after this year’s 15th Annual PlumpJack LINK Golf Classic at Lake Merced Golf Course. I want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of the attendees, sponsors, donors and the many volunteers who gave their time to help us throughout the day and evening. This event is all about putting an end to cancer, and to inform others about the importance of this cause. My husband Geoff and I started this event 15 years ago in honor of our mothers: Barbara Callan, a 26-year breast cancer survivor, and my mom, Tessa Newsom, who lost her battle with the disease 12 years ago. Looking back, we never could have imagined the robust and compassionate community of support you have helped us build. Since we started this journey, we have raised more than $3.2 million to support the Cancer Prevention Institute of California, and this year alone we raised close to $240k. We thank each and every one of you for your support and your positive contribution to the lives of cancer patients and their families. To see what your contributions are doing, please visit the CPIC website.
