Carolinas Against Cancer

imgCarolinas Against Cancer was incepted in 2010 as a way for the Carolinas Chapter to support a different cancer-related cause each year. Collectively, we are able to donate a greater dollar amount toward finding a cure for cancer. In the inaugural year of 2010, the Chapter chose to donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; in 2011, Chapter members participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society; and, in 2012-2013, the Carolinas Chapter was proud to partner with The Jenny Sullivan Sanford Melanoma and Skin Cancer Program at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center to fight against skin cancer.

2014 Cause
This year, we are on a mission to raise money to help find a cure for pancreatic cancer. The Chapter will again keep the funds close to home in the Carolinas by way of donating all money raised to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, located in Chapel Hill, NC.

2014 Events
Four of the Chapter’s regions will hold a fundraising golf outing in conjunction with one of their meetings:
Monday, June 30 – Upstate-Mountain Region: Greenville Country Club, Greenville, SC
Monday, July 7 – Coastal-Capital Region: Chapel Hill Country Club, Chapel Hill, NC
Monday, August 11 – Piedmont Region: The Peninsula Club, Cornelius, NC
Tuesday, September 30 – Lowcountry Region: Daniel Island Club, Daniel Island, SC

The four aforementioned clubs have generously offered their course at no cost so that all proceeds can go directly toward our cause.

2014 Goals

  • Field at least 20 teams/80 players per event.
  • Generate at least $6,000 in proceeds per event ($75/player) to go directly to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.
  • Secure $1,500 in sponsorships per event to cover all food, beverage and labor costs associated with the outing.

2014 Sponsorship Opportunities
There are up to twelve (12) sponsorship opportunities for companies and individuals interested in making a monetary contribution to help fund the outings and ensure that all registration fees/proceeds can go directly to the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Sponsorships will be sold in $500 increments, with no limit on the number of sponsorships per company/individual. For example, there can be three (3) $500 sponsors at each event, or a combination of one (1) $1,000 sponsor and one (1) $500 sponsor, or one (1) $1,500 sponsor. Additionally, companies/individuals are welcome to be a sponsor at any or all of the four outings; similarly, companies/individuals are welcome to participate in any or all of the four outings.
