Starting a New Decade in 2013 – Get Involved!
WPFT has had a wonderful 20 years and as we embark on our next decade to support MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando, we welcome and encourage new volunteers to get involved. WPFT volunteers are comprised of local women who have dedicated their time, financial resources and efforts to raising awareness and much needed financial support for the early detection, prevention and ultimately a cure of cancers affecting women.
Come join our organization and get involved as the chair of a community event or serving on an event committee. Events range from golf and sporting events to fashion shows, Bingo, Bridge or Bunco, just about anything you can think of. Please refer to the community events below for examples of events currently being managed by volunteers in support of WPFT. We are also seeking volunteers for our signature golf tournament committee hosted each fall at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club.

“It is rare to find a group of women who are so committed to a single cause- cancer. As someone who has had a scare with breast cancer, I can tell you first hand the difference that this group of women has made through their support, their drive, and their sheer determination to raise money for MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.”
- Mary Mahoney
“I have lost a lot of people in my life to cancer, including my closest friend. I know what it takes to fight it; the treatment, the emotional support, the feeling that you are alone. Joining this group of women gave me strength and power to fight back against something that takes so many lives every single day.”
- Megan Warlow
“When I was 17 years old, my younger sister died from a bone cancer. These days, that specific cancer rarely leads to death as a result of research and technology advancements. I have lost my husband and mother to cancer. My sister is a breast cancer survivor. I have made it my choice to become an active member of this volunteer sisterhood. WPFT is a vehicle for me to give both philanthropically, and personal equity. I am thrilled that I can make a difference and make the cancer diagnosis just a tiny bit easier for other patients, families, friends, and caregivers because of the efforts of WPFT. This organization has wide arms, a generous heart and friendships that last for life.”
- Andrea Eliscu
“I am a survivor and know a great deal of women who have also endured the same nightmare. I know what it takes to fight it; the treatment, the emotional support, the feeling that you are alone. Joining this group of women gave me strength and power to fight back against something that takes so many lives every single day.”
- Shari Bartz
"Having seen both of my grandmothers suffer from and, ultimately, lose their battle with breast cancer, fundraising to find a cure for the disease has always been a high priority for me. Women Playing For T.I.M.E. is a true blessing. There's nothing better than knowing you are contributing to an organization where every dollar raised is being kept in YOUR community to help YOUR neighbors! And to see, firsthand, the difference that you make by way of donations to MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando is immeasurable."
- Lynette Reynolds
"I have not personally experienced breast cancer, but enough women in my life are affected by it that I could not ignore my call to help. After two rewarding years, I can honestly say that it is the most rewarding volunteer experience I have been part of."
