The Mahalak Auto Group will host their ‘18 Aces to Conquer Cancer'
10th annual golf outing to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research
and patient aid. The event will take place on FLAG Day, Wednesday,
June 14 th at Monroe Golf and Country Club in Monroe, Michigan.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Barbara Ann Karmanos
Cancer Institute for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
The event offers a chance to win a Jeep lease for every hole-in-one
made. The course will be set up so that every hole is a par three and
play will be four-person best ball scramble. There will be $31 million
dollars’ worth of vehicles to give away!
"The goal of 18 Aces to Conquer Cancer is to raise funds for
pancreatic cancer, but also to have a fun time doing it!" said Ralph
Mahalak Jr., co-owner of the Mahalak Auto Group. “This year we will
be honoring five members of the community that have recently passed-
Glenda Kennon, Jeff Tuttle, Frank Messina, Bud Johnson, and Eric
Maxwell. We are currently looking for interested sponsors, golfers,
speakers, and volunteers."
The event registration will include a Tim Horton breakfast at 8:45am
and a shotgun start at 10:14 am. After the round of golf concludes,
there will be an Awards Lunch with live and silent auctions."We are
trying to raise funds for research and awareness of pancreatic
cancer,” said Ralph."It is rarely detected in its early stages, so it is
one of the leading causes of cancer death." Signs and symptoms may
not appear until pancreatic cancer is quite advanced and surgical
removal is not possible. 18 Aces to Conquer Cancer aims to spread
awareness of pancreatic cancer, while donating proceeds to research
and patient aid.
The annual event has raised over $100,000 for pancreatic cancer
research and other related programs. Each year, the event is rotated
between venues to be close to one of the seven Low Payment King
Mahalak Auto Group dealerships-Winter Haven Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM,
Lake Wales Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep
RAM FIAT, Winter Haven Alfa Romeo FIAT, Buckeye Jeep Superstore, LPK
Jeep of Defiance & Monroe Dodge Superstore.
