Mission Statement

The Augustine L. Muñoz Cancer Research Fund was founded in 1999 with a single purpose: "To aid research in the early detection of pancreatic cancer."

My name is David Muñoz, my father Augie Muñoz passed away in June 1998 after a brief bout with a rare form of Pancreatic Cancer. As a Non-Profit Organization, the Augustine L. Muñoz Cancer Research Fund works to raise funds through the organization of annual Golf Tournaments and other activities. These activities are sponsored events and the proceeds are donated on his behalf to the USC/Norris Cancer Center, where he was hospitalized during his illness. Through these fund raising activities we plan to provide doctors with the funds necessary to advance research in this area.

Although pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer, research in this area has been limited. As with all types of cancer, early detection is key.

Each year our event grows due to the continued support from people like you. I ask you to join us as we promote awareness and early detection of Pancreatic Cancer. Those who knew my Dad know that he was always one to lend a hand to help others. Please help us make this event a success so that we might aid others in the early detection of Pancreatic Cancer. We would be honored to receive your support as a sponsor, player or dinner guest or all.

The Tournament Sponsor and Entry Form on this site gives you information on the types of sponsorships and entry fees. We would also appreciate any donations for the silent auction, raffle, and/or tee bag prizes. Please contact me by phone, fax or E-Mail. I'd be happy to discuss our organization with you and answer any questions.

Please make donations payable to the following: "The Augustine L. Muñoz Cancer Research Fund". All sponsorships and donations are tax deductible (Tax ID #95-4734309). Thank you for your attention and your anticipated support.
