The Emcee for this event will be Lila Lazarus, a favorite local media celebrity and the Board President for Kids Kicking Cancer.  “Detroiters love to golf. Giving while golfing is even better” said Lila.   “Join me July 31 along with some great names in sports at Knollwood Country Club to support children fighting cancer and other diseases.”


Kids Kicking Cancer was founded in 1999 by a local father and a black belt, Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg (whom the kids call Rabbi G) who lost his daughter to leukemia at the age of 2.  Headquartered in Southfield Michigan, they serve over 650 children, ages 3 and up into their twenties suffering from all types of pediatric illness in the metropolitan Detroit area.  With programs across the United States and in 4 countries, they are teaching thousands of children techniques to control the pain, stress, anxiety, and fear associated with their disease and treatment procedures. Rabbi G encourages you to participate and help empower these kids to be victors, not victims to their disease.   Go to to learn more about Kids Kicking Cancer.
