Rod Carew Children’s Golf Classic



The 27th annual Rod Carew Charity Golf Classic is set to return to Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Beach, CA on Monday, August 28, 2023. This Orange County favorite golf tournament is hosted by PCRF and Hall of Fame baseball great, Rod Carew. We invite you to block off your calendar and join us for a world-class golf experience. This special event has raised millions of dollars for pediatric cancer research, all in remembrance of Rod’s daughter, Michelle Carew. Thanks to Rod’s dedication, there are more treatments available to kids today that weren’t available for Michelle. The fact is that donations to pediatric cancer research have declined significantly during the past two years, making the Foundation’s work of funding research that accelerates breakthroughs even more urgent today. With your help, monies raised from this tournament can help save more children battling cancer. 

“Funding research for these kids is even more vital today than it was 27 years ago when we started this event. Every day we spend on the golf course raising funds for doctors to sustain the labs to find a cure is really WORTH IT! I thank you for your past support and hope you will join us on the course to celebrate 27 years of hard work and life-saving research.”

This sell-out tournament will fill 2 full fields, with a shotgun start at 10:00 am and your choice of playing a Scramble or Shamble format. Players can expect to experience on-course contest holes, delicious food, and incredible swag offerings from our elite product partners. Coming off the course, players will enjoy a cocktail reception, silent auction, and a chance to mingle with with fellow players, Foundation members, and Rod Carew himself. Reserve your spot on the course today by registering or sponsoring online.



Your support and participation are critical to providing hope for a brighter future for all the children and families facing pediatric cancer each day.

Michelle Carew Spirit Award

Each year we have the honor to acknowledge, value and appreciate members of the PCRF community – donors, families, researchers, corporate leaders, and organizations – who have gone above and beyond to raise awareness and funds for children battling cancer. It is this spirit of active giving that is the most effective path to making our lifesaving work possible.
