Swinney's Ladies Clinic Draws Record Crowd
CLEMSON, SC (CU SID) -- Approximately 1,200 ladies from across the state of South Carolina, as well as Georgia, North Carolina, and even as far as New Mexico attended the Dabo Swinney Ladies Clinic on Saturday, July 20. It was a record-setting crowd for the clinic in the five years that Swinney has been the host.
This year's clinic was hosted by Dabo Swinney's All In Team Foundation and Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. Proceeds from the clinic will benefit breast cancer prevention and research.
The ladies in attendance spent the day learning about Clemson football via meetings and discussions with the Tiger coaching staff. Attendees were able to interact with the coaches and their families, and also met several members of the football team. The day also included behind-the-scenes tours of Clemson's football facilities, including the locker room, weight room, meeting rooms and the new Clemson Football Indoor Practice Facility.
For the first time, free digital mammograms were offered at the clinic. The St. Francis Mobile Mammogram Coach was onsite at Littlejohn Coliseum and the attendees were offered the opportunity to have a free screening test.
