The 17th Annual Sugar Mill Women's Golf Association Rally for a Cure was Feb. 21 at Sugar Mill Country Club in New Smyrna Beach.

This year's contributions totaled $10,400, bringing the total dollars raised over the years by the organization to $138,566.

More than 150 women participated in the benefit, which included golf and lunch.

The guest speaker was Ulrike Entwistle of Heart Strings Boutique in New Smyrna Beach, who spoke about her life and personal experiences with cancer.

Contributions from the fundraiser are given to the local Susan G. Komen affiliate. Seventy-five percent of the net income of the Komen Affiliate is used locally for screening, treatment and community outreach programs. The remaining 25 percent is used to fund national research projects.
