Always Caring. Always Here.


On September 21 and 22, Nanticoke Health Services held its 9th annual Ladies Day Golf Tournament and 31st annual Open Day Golf Tournament. Over the two days, 250 golfers took to the course at Heritage Shores to enjoy the last few days of summer with sunshine and fun to raise money for a good cause. The theme for this year’s Ladies Day tournament was “Flamingling for the Cause.”

Proceeds from the tournament total over $105,000 and will benefit the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center. The Cancer Care Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, combines a loving environment with quality care delivered by a team of compassionate experts. Nanticoke’s Cancer Care Center treats patients living in Sussex County and surrounding areas, allowing them to receive lifesaving cancer treatments in Seaford. As a result, the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center is once again expanding to meet the cancer needs of the community.

The Pink LINKS program returned again to this year’s tournaments. Through the support of the community, Nanticoke lined the course with over a hundred pink golf-ball-shaped signs “In Honor,” “In Memory,” or “In Celebration” of a loved one.
