Preparations for the 37th Annual Leukemia Golf Open are currently underway. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) strives to surpass last year's profit of $388,000, our highest net to date.  Established in 1979, this golf outing is LLS's longest running event in the local area.  

The event will begin on Friday, June 12, 2015, at the Pittsburgh Field Club. Golfers and guests will enjoy an evening dinner program, which includes cocktails, dinner, a silent and live auction and the presentation of the Roy Chipman Courage Award. Golfers will then take to the tees on Monday, June 15, 2015, in a best ball competition. Morning and afternoon shotgun starts are available.  Raffles, closest-to-the-pin and hole-in-one competitions will be held throughout the day. A continental breakfast, lunch and awards reception will also be available for the golfers to enjoy. 

The Leukemia Golf Open Committee would like to extend an invitation to you, your family, friends, and colleagues, to join us for the 2015 outing. You can participate as a golfer, guest, sponsor, auction donor, or simply as an LLS supporter.  Help improve your golf game while swinging towards a cure for a great cause.
