2024 Kids Without Cancer Golf Outing (Continued)

Despite this year’s Golf Outing being a last-minute addition to our 2024 fundraising campaign, your generosity enabled us to raise over $15k. These funds have already been allocated to research projects that will make a significant impact by the end of this year. Looking ahead, we are already planning for next year’s golf outing, aiming to surpass $30k in fundraising. The success we have achieved so far is a testament to the incredible results we are seeing from our research projects, and we are determined to push even further.

Our ability to make a difference and drive change in the fight against pediatric cancer hinges on the support of our community partners and dedicated volunteers like you. Your involvement in our events not only helps us raise crucial funds but also raises awareness for our cause. On behalf of Kids Without Cancer, the children bravely battling this disease, and the future generations who will face this challenge, we extend our heartfelt thanks for your kindness and generosity.

If you are interested in continuing to support our mission by sponsoring, attending, or volunteering for next year’s event, please reach out to us. We are already laying the groundwork for the 2025 Kids Without Cancer Golf Outing, and we would be honored to have you join us in making a difference.

Thank you once again for standing with us in the fight against pediatric cancer. Together, we can bring hope and healing to those who need it most.

In addition, a big thank you to our Sponsors (Corporate Sponsors: Siam Logistics, Hyundai Hope On Wheels, L&A Automotive, C.L. Rieckhoff Co. Inc., Diamond Jack’s, C MAC Transportation, Mostek Insurance Agency, Susanne Consiglio RDN Nutrition Counseling).

A special thank you to our Guest of Honor, Artist Juliana Rabban ( and her unwavering support!

Warm regards,

Great food, dancing to an awesome DJ, plus Silent & Chance Auctions while supporting pediatric cancer research on Saturday April 22, 2023

At our 40th Annual “Evening of Hope” we raised money for “Kids Without Cancer” to support pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and Wayne State University.

New Venue – We enjoined an evening of dinner and dancing surrounded by operational WWII bombers and other iconic aircraft on Saturday April 22, 2023.  It was reminiscent of a WWII USO Hangar Dance!

100% of all proceeds go directly to pediatric cancer research.

It was a terrific time with great food catered by The Moveable Feast and dancing to a DJ. 

We thank the following from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to host the event at:

Kids Without Cancer turns 43!!!

It is hard to believe that Kids Without Cancer is now 43 years old and still working toward finding that elusive cure for pediatric cancer of all types!

We are proud of the accomplishments from our early days as Leukemia, Research, Life, Inc right up to today as Kids Without Cancer.  We have raised in excess of $5 million dollars and are happy to say that over 97% of the money raised is spend directly on pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and its affiliation with Wayne State University School of Medicine and Karmanos Cancer Institute.

We know the research worldwide is bearing fruit because back in 1981 approximately 50% of children diagnosed with cancer would not survive AND today approximately 85% of children diagnosed WILL survive.  We just need to reach that 100% goal and create a world of Kids Without Cancer………

Stay tuned for future announcements as we are in the process of expanding our “Kids Without Cancer Zebrafish Initiative” research lab located on the main campus of the Wayne State University School of Medicine!!!
