The fifth annual Ethicon Endo-Surgery Pink Ribbon LPGA Pro-Am kicked off with a gala at the Hall of Mirrors and Pavilion at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. About 400 exchanged golf togs for gowns and tuxes for the dinner, silent auction and performances by jazz phenom Peter Cincotti and comedian Robert Klein.
Most of the guests were playing golf the next day in the pro-am so they needed plenty of nourishment - and found it in lavish hors d'eouvres such as scallops wrapped in bacon during the cocktail reception and during a dinner of filet mignon and swordfish.
The event raised $150,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which funds breast cancer research, bringing the event's five-year total to more than $600,000.
