THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Every 69 seconds a woman dies from breast cancer. A group in Thomasville is working to lower the numbers.

On Saturday August 13th, the Thomasville Tatas will host a golf tournament at Country Oaks in Thomasville.

Golfers of all levels are invited to participate. The cost is $60 a person.

The first tee time is 8:30 Saturday morning. "Fundraising has been great. We've had tons of support from the local community and local businesses. We're extremely excited and extremely happy that we've had so much support," said Team Captain Karrie Clements.

Later this year, members of the Thomasville group will take part in the Susan G. Komen Walk for a Cure. It's a three day, 60 mile fundraising walk in Atlanta.
