MOSSEL BAY NEWS AND VIDEO - The Mossel Bay Golf Club hosted the Afrishore Golf Day in aid of Pink Trees for Pauline.
The 88 golfers Teed off at 10:35 on Friday morning (23 October).
Pink Trees for Pauline’s purpose is to create awareness, unite communities and raise money for those afflicted with cancer in a uniquely inspired way... by turning towns pink!
In 2012 the non-profit company ‘Pink Trees for Pauline’ was founded and one woman’s dream became a larger-than-life project which astounds every day.
Watch a video below:
Carol-Ann van Jaarsveldt took the legacy of her mother and grandmother and turned it into an epic tale of hope, encouragement and belonging. Carol-Ann lost her mother and her grandmother, both named Pauline, to cancer.
She acted on her dream to communicate the legacy of these two women, who both played significant roles in her life, and made it a reality in her hometown Graaff-Reinet.
The ‘Pink Trees for Pauline’ initiative was then born, as each of us knows or is connected to, our own “Pauline”. To raise cancer awareness all the trees along the roads in Graaff-Reinet were wrapped in pink material.
Then in 2012 Carol-ann van Jaarsveld, together with Adri van Nieuwenhuizen – a breast cancer survivor and Dr Pam Kerr, an Educational Psychologist – officially founded the organisation “Pink Trees for Pauline”.
The vision Carol-ann once had is now the driving force of many people who are wrapping South Africa and Namibia in pink to signify new life during and after cancer. (Source: pinktrees.co.za)
