Going Pink to Support a Cure

January 30, 2019

The Day Family Foundation has been giving to Women Playing For T.I.M.E. since 1993 and has given more than $720,000 over the years.

The Foundation was created by Dr. Harry M. Day as part of his estate plan and, since his passing in 1988, has been operated and managed by his two sons and his wife Setsuko (Setsi).  

The mission of Women Playing For T.I.M.E.® (Technology, Immediate Diagnosis, Mammography, Education) is to partner with the Orlando Health Foundation in support of Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center to defeat cancer as it affects women and their families and friends.

Since its inception in 1993, the organization has raised more than $10 million toward this goal by:

  • Engaging women through events and programs
  • Providing financial resources
  • Raising awareness among women to safeguard their own health
  • Educating the public about programs and services at Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center

Throughout the year, but especially in the month of October, Women Playing For T.I.M.E. hosts events across Central Florida including: golf tournaments, bridge tournaments, tennis tournaments and more. Visit WomenPlayingForTime.org for more information.

The Day Family Foundation has been giving to Women Playing For T.I.M.E. since 1993 and has given more than $720,000 over the years. The Foundation was created by Dr. Harry M. Day as part of his estate plan and, since his passing in 1988, has been operated and managed by his two sons and his wife Setsuko (Setsi).

In 1993, Setsi was approached by Elaine Lastiq and Sheila Solomon who were putting together a golf tournament to raise money for breast cancer patients in Central Florida. This tournament was part of a new organization called Women Playing For T.I.M.E. Setsi agreed to join in their efforts and has participated in their events every year since.

“I recommended that the Day Family Foundation partner with Women Playing For T.I.M.E. because there are so many women suffering from breast cancer,” explained Setsi. “Many of us know someone who has or had breast cancer, making it a personal cause. It is wonderful to have the Orlando Health UF Health Cancer Center in our community so patients do not have to drive far from their homes and their families to get treatment.”
