Duke Cancer Institute's "Pickle for Pink" pickleball tournament (Oct. 21-22) and silent auction (Oct. 1-15) raised more than $40K to benefit Duke Breast Surgery and the Duke Breast Oncology Program. Multiple items were available for auction, including pickleball paddles and gear and two tickets to the P!nk concert in Charlotte, NC.
"Thank you to our phenomenal breast surgery team and Duke Surgical Oncology for coming out in full force to support the inaugural Pickle for Pink event! See you back on the courts next year!" said Maggie DiNome, MD, chief of breast surgery, DCI, professor of Surgery, and the driving force behind the event, in a Tweet. "And thanks to Joey who came out post-call, and to our awesome APP’s Sophie, Sam, and Jackie for coming out on the weekend!"
(The event was also slated to include an exhibition game on October 20, but the game was rained out.)
