Our mission is to create, develop and sustain a fundraiser of national proportion and reputation that embodies the spirit and energy of Jim Valvano. Participants and sponsors will clearly understand the value of their investment and will repeatedly seek annual participation. The event will provide significant funding to The V Foundation in the ongoing struggle to find a cure for cancer.

Overview

Throughout his life, Jim Valvano kept a list of things he wanted to do on note cards in his pocket.  The last note card Pam Valvano pulled out of Jim’s sport coat pocket read, “find a cure for cancer.” Jim dreamed of an event that would raise significant funds for cancer research.  Nineteen years ago, that dream became a reality in the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic.
The Golf Classic weekend has been called “A Magical Weekend” by many.  When you mix together generous sponsors and outgoing celebrities, tug on a few heartstrings, and play lots of golf, you will surely find yourself having nothing short of a magical weekend. And proudly, we announce that after seventeen years of magical Golf Classic weekends, we have raised nearly fifteen million dollars for cancer research.  Those dollars help fund research grants at scientific and medical facilities nationwide that will one day help us reach Jim’s ultimate goal of finding a cure for cancer!
We have ALL been touched by cancer.  We have learned that what makes our event so unique is how personal the weekend has become. That’s why we believe that “Cancer is about people.” It’s about our parents and our children, our neighbors and our friends. It has touched our clients, it has touched our co-workers, and for some of us, it has touched that face in the mirror. Beyond all of the science and the statistics, the medicine and the treatments, are the people, their challenges and their triumphs.  The cures for cancer will be found in laboratories and research hospitals, but the battle against cancer is fought in neighborhoods like ours.  We have all been affected by this disease. By participating in The Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic you CAN make a difference in this fight!
Come help us raise money to find a cure for cancer. See your old friends, make some new friends, and play a little golf too!

  2. So proud of our Scotty to participate in this fight against cancer. I read this article and keep thinking of my granddaughter(9 years old)who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia 1 year ago. She is doing well now. She still has to get her treatments but is really doing great. Following Scotty has been a blessing to me. Can't wait for his album! Grandma from Buffalo.
