The 26th annual Rod Carew Charity Golf Classic is set to return to Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Beach, CA on Monday, August 29, 2022. 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.
This sell-out tournament will fill 2 full fields, with scheduled tee times 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. While the tournament will likely have to forgo a dinner program this year in light of the golf club’s operations – we invite you to stick around after your round of golf! Enjoy some food, drinks, online auction, and mingle with fellow players, Foundation members, and Rod Carew himself. Reserve your spot on the course today by registering or sponsoring online.
PCRF continues the critical work of championing leading edge research that promises the best hope for a cure for childhood cancer. We have the deep conviction that, together, we can continue the momentum of advancing pediatric cancer research.
Your support and participation are critical to providing hope for a brighter future for all the children and families facing pediatric cancer each day.
