“We were delighted to team with the other sponsors of this event and the Brunswick Forest Community to support the Lump to Laughter mission,” said Dr. Jonathan S. Ludwig from Cape Fear Dental Care. “This organization is making a difference in people’s lives and it’s something that fits perfectly with the competitive and compassionate spirit of Pickleballers everywhere”.

The Lump to Laughter organization is dedicated to supporting those diagnosed with breast cancer, with a focus on renewing spirits and alleviating anxiety for all women in treatment for cancer.

“At Lump to Laughter, no woman should ever have to worry about whether to pay her mortgage or pay for her treatments,” said Connie Hill, executive director. “Whatever it takes to provide relief and lower the stress level for those we serve is what Lump to Laughter is all about. Our organization is truly grateful to all of the sponsors and sharing in our passion to help fight this disease.”
