Our team at Buckeye Superstore and the Low Payment Kings would like to give a special thanks to everyone that came out to our 6th annual 18 Aces to Conquer Cancer event on June 13, 2018 at the Monroe Golf & Country Club. We were a proud supporter of this event that turned out to be a complete success.
At this year’s event, $22,174 was raised for Karmanos Pancreatic Cancer Research; this is over $10,000 more than last year’s earnings! The funds will, of course, go to pancreatic cancer research and patient aid.
Last month, Aretha Franklin passed away from pancreatic cancer, bringing more awareness to the general public of the disease. It’s estimated that 55,000 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018, according to the American Cancer Society. It is even the fourth leading cause of cancer death in both men and women.
The Karmanos Cancer Institute is one of 41 National Cancer Institute centers in the U.S. The center’s aim is to prevent, detect, and eradicate all forms of cancer, not just pancreatic.
While raising money during the event, participants also had a chance to win a new vehicle lease on cars like a new RAM truck, Dodge car, or Chrysler model for every hole-in-one made. After golf, we held a dinner with live and silent auctions. The entire event was a success – those in attendance were able to have fun while raising money for a great charitable cause.
If you couldn’t make it this year, don’t fret! We’re hosting the 18 Aces to Conquer Cancer event again next year on March 19, 2019 at the Country Club of Winter Haven.
We couldn’t have been as successful as we were without the support of our loyal customers, friends, and family. To learn more about the event or other ways our new car dealership near Mansfield, OH gives back to the community, feel free to get in touch with our Dodge dealers at 888-997-5135.
