Rally for the Cure announces new on-line club donation center

WILTON, Conn. -- Rally for the Cure announces a new partnership with 3balls.com® who have combined efforts to create the Rally Golf Club Donation Center website opening January 2008 and located at donateclubs.rallyforthecure.com. The Center was created as an alternate method of raising funds to beat breast cancer. Golfers interested in raising funds are encouraged to clean out their closets for a good cause by visiting donateclubs.rallyforthecure.com where they can quickly find the fair market donation values for their golf clubs as determined by the PGA.com Value Guide, the National Standard for Golf Club Values™. Funds raised through golf club donations will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Rally for the Cure® is in it’s 12th year as a golf grassroots breast cancer awareness program. Since it debuted in 1996, the mission of Rally for the Cure® has been to emphasize the importance of early detection in the successful treatment of breast cancer and to support the mission of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. According to Komen for the Cure, each year breast cancer is the leading cause of death for women ages 35-54, and the disease also accounts for more than 75% of all cancer deaths in women 55 years of age and older.
