Rod Carew Children's Golf Classic

JOIN US FOR THE 23RD ANNUAL ROD CAREW CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC
This year we celebrate the 23rd consecutive year that Rod Carew, Hall of Fame baseball great, has partnered with PCRF to host the Annual Rod Carew Children’s Cancer Golf Classic. This Orange County favorite golf tournament has raised millions of dollars for pediatric cancer research, all in honor of Michelle Carew’s memory. After a year hiatus, Rod made an enthusiastic return after having missed last year’s tournament for the first time in over 2 decades. With his encouragement and strength we continue in our fight to help save kids that are battling cancer just like Michelle.
“Thank you for supporting this special day, and the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. You are helping save kids that are fighting just like my daughter did over 20 years ago. I may have lost a daughter, but every one of these kids that survives is one of my children now. These are my kids you are saving today.”
The tournament will be held on Monday, August 27, 2018 at the Pelican Hill Golf Club. The tournament will be played on both courses. A traditional foursome scramble will be played on one course and a foursome select drive (Shamble) will be played on the other course. The tournament will be played in foursomes with a shotgun start at 9:30AM. After tournament play enjoy a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a celebratory dinner beginning at 5:00PM.

MICHELLE CAREW SPIRIT AWARD
It is with great admiration and respect that we announce this year’s Michelle Carew Spirit Award recipient will be Jim Axelson, with UBS.
“PCRF does more with less resources than any organization I have ever seen or been involved with. I have seen the miracles and listened to the stories from the kids that PCRF has been able to help and it always reminds me how blessed I am, so it thrills me to do my little part to help.” – Jim Axelson
Jim’s “little part” for more than 20 years has resulted in hundreds of thousands of research dollars, growth in awareness, and a leadership role that others have followed in order to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
Right now we cannot prevent children from being born with pediatric cancers. We can, however, provide them with treatments to overcome many types of these diseases. It just takes resources.
