Join a Committee
WPFT has had a wonderful 28 years and as we embark on our next decade to support Orlando Health Cancer Institute, we welcome and encourage new volunteers to get involved.
WPFT is a group of volunteers and community leaders working in partnership with Orlando Health Foundation, 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 turnkey †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 events page for examples of events currently being managed by volunteers in support of WPFT. Interested in becoming more involved with WPFT? Just fill out this form or give us a call at (321) 841-2272. †A turnkey event is an event to benefit the hospital which is managed and funded by a volunteer fundraiser/committee. The chair selects the volunteer committee, solicits donations and sponsorships (with guidance of OHF) to fund their budget, and hold independent committee meetings to organize the event.
In choosing to volunteer with WPFT, you’ll have a front row seat to the latest developments in cancer research and treatment through Orlando Health Cancer Institute. You’ll also meet and work with some of the most incredible women, who have united together to commit their time and resources to eradicate cancer. The time requirements and commitments vary by project or event. And we are confident we can help you find the perfect volunteer opportunity!

Some examples of WPFT past and present ongoing partnerships in the community are with Panera Bread’s Pink Ribbon Bagels promotion, Brighton Collectibles’ Power of Pink promotion, Orlando Rowing Club’s Masters Regatta, OARS Masters Regatta, Bloomingdale’s Walk For T.I.M.E., Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival, Tavistock Cup, Walgreen’s and many more.
- Host a Turnkey Golf or Tennis Tournament Host a breast cancer/women’s cancer charity golf or tennis tournament at your home club and donate the proceeds to WPFT. We can provide you with a guidelines brochure to aid you in organizing a successful tournament, as Orange Tree Golf Club and The Golden Bear Club at Keene’s Pointe Country Club have done. These are two golf communities that have rallied around their chairman and membership to create two very successful golf tournaments.
- Host a Fundraising Event Hold a fundraiser to benefit breast cancer research for WPFT and Orlando Health Cancer Institute. Fill out the online fundraising form above and submit for approval. Examples of successful fundraising events in the past are in-store promotions, bingo night, Bunco night, pink parties, bridge tournaments, walks, luncheons, gift wrapping tables and school functions
