Founders Club Proudly Supports the St. Joseph's/Candler Mammography Fund
Date:2/13/2009

SAVANNAH, Ga., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Founders Club will donate $5 from the sale of its new Believe golf clubs to the Mammography Fund at St. Joseph's/Candler.

"The Mammography Fund is a great service to the community. Early detection is crucial in the fight against cancer," Jeff Andrews, CEO of Founders Club, said.

The Believe set retails for $399 and will be sold at Edwin Watts Golf stores and specialty golf retail stores across the United States.

"St. Joseph's/Candler is very proud to be selected as the national recipient for this generous donation," said Paul P. Hinchey, president & CEO of St. Joseph's/Candler. "As one of only 10 NCI-selected National Community Cancer Center Programs (NCCCP) pilot sites in the country, our Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion works hard to erase cultural, economic and other access barriers to oncology services. The funds generated from the sale of these golf clubs will go a long way in helping us fulfill that mission," Hinchey adds.

The Mammography Fund covers the cost of mammograms for women with little or no insurance. They are identified through SJ/C programs, the Mary Telfair Women's Hospital's network of services or the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion.

From 2007 to 2008 the number of patients who used the fund increased 208 percent.

With the economy souring and more people losing insurance, the fund is becoming even more important.

Founder's Club, headquartered in Savannah, is already selling the clubs in Canada and donating to the Canadian Cancer Society. The Believe set comes with a bag and a full compliment of 11 clubs. This easy-to-hit set is designed to offer the latest game improvement technology to help improve your game and improve your golf experience.
