18th Annual Jerry Colangelo Sports Legends Golf Classic set for May 19th & 20th at Arizona Biltmore Golf Club

Prostate On-Site Project will be hosting its 18th Annual Jerry Colangelo Sports Legends Golf Classic, Sunday, May 19th and Monday, May 20th at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club located at 2400 E. Missouri Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona.

The Tournament includes a Five Man Scramble, which consists of four amateur players teamed with an NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL Hall-of-Famer or sports celebrity as a Team Captain. Contests and prizes await all players, who will also be treated to a special tournament gift package. Food and beverages will be provided. All players are invited to the awards dinner ceremony. 

This is a Charitable Cause, of which net proceeds from this event benefit “POP” Prostate On- Site Project, a 501(c)(3) foundation. POP has mobile medical screening units that travel throughout Arizona offering free or low-cost prostate cancer screenings. This year in Arizona, more than 4,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Tragically, 600 will die. Many of these deaths could be prevented – simply by detecting the disease early. 

Jerry Colangelo has been the face of the NBA Phoenix Suns franchise since their inaugural season in 1968 to his current role as chairman of USA Basketball. Jerry was diagnosed with prostate cancer in late 2004 and is an Advocate for POP and their mission to improve the quality of life for men and their families through awareness and the early detection of prostate cancer. Jerry invites you to support this tournament and great cause!
