Professional and amateur golfers from around the country lend tremendous support to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Since 1997, The Prostate Cancer Foundation has been supported by the late, legendary golfer Arnold Palmer and Arnold Palmer Enterprises. The Par-3 Challenge (formerly known as Arnie’s Army Battles Prostate Cancer) is a closest-to-the-pin contest built around a day of play or a tournament intended to support the cause and to raise money for prostate cancer research. This and our other golf programs offer prize collateral and awareness materials for contributing golfers, plus a few nice perks to help draw more participation.
The Prostate Cancer Foundation is forever grateful to Mr. Palmer for his support and his passion for the cause. His legacy lives on through his family who continues to support the research and programs of PCF as we search for a cure.
“Blue Ribbon Golf” Tournaments are uniquely created by those who love the game and want to raise valuable funds for much needed research. If you, your friends, or members at your club are serious about making a difference in the fight against prostate cancer, a golf tournament is a great way to make that difference come to life.
Often events are centered around significant times of the year, such as Father’s Day or during the month of September, being Prostate Cancer Awareness month. While those are great times to hold an event, all we ask is you find a date and time that works best for you and fits on the calendar for the course you’re playing! Any special event offers a great opportunity to show the men in our lives how much they mean to all of us.
