No less than 92 ladies (that is, 46 teams of two, all dressed in pink and white) were present to manage the club this Thursday, June 9, 2022, at the Brest les Abers golf course, in Plouarzel, during the fourth edition of the Ladies Odyssea Cup Trophy. The tournament has resumed service after a two-year hiatus after Covid. This contest organized under the direction of Catherine Chabaud aims to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer. The funds are then donated to Odyssea, which aims to improve the comfort of patients affected by this disease.
“We will be at €800,000 next year”
At the time of the results, at 6:30 p.m., when most of the golfers received one of the many prizes offered by the different sponsors, Catherine Chabaud presented a check for €3,646, the result of donations from the day made by the players. This is Gwenaël Vigot, president of Odyssea and organizer of the event, the Odyssea race in Relecq-Kerhuon, who received the check. The latter underlined during his intervention: “We have organized Odyssea since 2003, so we are preparing for the 23rd edition. Since the creation of the event, we have raised €732,000. We will be at €800,000 this year. We distribute these donations to Finisterre associations for women with breast cancer.
