Dear business leaders and friends,

The American Cancer Society’s Golf Classic is a high-end, amenity-rich tournament that raises funds for the Society’s mission of improving the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer. While progress has been made in cancer research, we still have a lot of work to do.

We invite you to support our efforts to finish the fight against cancer. By bringing together business and community leaders to this event, we are able to support the American Cancer Society’s mission.

In the past 19 years, the Cincinnati Golf Classic has raised over $6 million to help the American Cancer Society continue to fund life-saving research as well as free programs and services for cancer patients and their families in our community and across the nation. We know with your participation, we can help to make this cancer’s last century.

We hope to see you on the course!

David Arends  &  Ken Black
