MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando accepts check from charity organization

Women Playing For T.I.M.E. – a grassroots all-women volunteer organization - began 20 years ago. Their goals were to raise funds for MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando and fight cancer. After two decades, the group certainly accomplished those goals. Today, Women Playing For T.I.M.E. ® presented MD Anderson – Orlando with a check for $855,435 for cancer research and programs. This brings their total donations over the past 20 years to an astonishing figure of over 9 million dollars! The announcement and celebration of this amazing milestone took place during the group’s 20th anniversary charity golf tournament at the Lake Nona Golf and Country Club.

Since their birth in 1993, Women Playing for T.I.M.E. (WPFT) continues to expand its philanthropic endeavors to benefit MD Anderson – Orlando, using sporting events such as golf, tennis, and dragon boating to bring out cancer patients, survivors and supporters to assist in raising funds to benefit cancer services. Money raised by WPFT go to MD Anderson – Orlando to fund breast cancer research and other cancers affecting women, as well as fund the patient transport program and community education about early detection, appropriate screenings and healthy lifestyles and prevention.
