Rod Carew Children’s Golf Classic
MONDAY, AUGUST 19, 2019
PELICAN HILL GOLF CLUB
JOIN US FOR THE 24TH ANNUAL ROD CAREW CHARITY GOLF CLASSIC
This year we celebrate the 24th 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. It is with Rod’s encouragement and strength that we remain steadfast in our commitment to raising funds that will help save more kids battling cancer, just like Michelle did more than 20 years ago.
“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 19, 2019 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
Our 2019 recipient of the Michelle Carew Spirit Award recipient is Nathan Boroff – supporter, advocate, and Cancer Dad to his survivor, Andi.
PCRF played a unique part in Andi’s cancer journey. Andi’s parents were faced with options on which treatment route they should take – surgery or radiation. After reaching out to PCRF, one of our granted researchers was able to provide the Boroff family a second opinion. Not only was the suggestion different from where the family was leaning – it ended up being the medical decision that helped Andi overcome cancer and continue to have no evidence of disease in her body.
Nathan has been a true advocate for PCRF – supporting and spreading the word about our mission. Introducing new donors, sponsors, event participants, and volunteers. Thanks to individuals like Nathan, our community of supporters grows larger – which translates to more awareness and funds that will be directed towards leading edge research with the best hope for a cure.
Please contact our Director of Special Events with any questions on how you or your organization might partner with us for this year’s event with the gift of sponsorship, gift in-kind donation, or auction donation. Erin Arreola can be reached directly at email@example.com or (949) 859-6312.
