18 Aces to Conquer Cancer Charity Golf Outing


The Mahalak Auto Group will host their '18 Aces to Conquer Cancer' 7th annual golf outing to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research and patient aid. The event will take place Wednesday, March 19, 2019 at Country Club of Winter Haven
4200 Country Club RD S Winter Haven, FL 33881. 
The event offers a chance to win a new vehicle lease for every hole-in-one made. The course will be set up so that every hole is a par 3, play will be best ball scramble. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute for Pancreatic Cancer Research. "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. "We are currently looking for interested sponsors, golfers, speakers, and volunteers."

PCAP/ Karmanos thank you letters

Dear Mr. Mahalak,

We are astounded!!  Not quite sure how to express how much we appreciate your support. Your gift of $12,371 assures that we will continue in our efforts to raise funds and awareness to fight the horrible disease known as pancreatic cancer. We both know now just how devastating it is.

We feel great about the progress we have made so far. Last year we really gained some ground and know that people are starting to find out about us. We plan to continue creating events to raise funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer. Last year we were able to give $20,000 towards research.

By November, we plan to have some informational pamphlets available at local cancer centers, medical facilities and other key points for those facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Many of us felt like we were really at a loss for where to start seeking information when we were in that situation. A local restaurant will host a fundraiser in October and we hold a PurpleLight Vigil in November.
You have been instrumental in moving PCAP forward and I am forever grateful. I really every little bit we can do will someday make the difference for different outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients.

It was such a pleasure meeting you all and we thoroughly enjoyed the 18 Aces to Conquer Cancer dinner. Hope to see you again! Stay well!

Thank you,
