Join us for a great weekend for a worthy cause
You're invited to join us for the 22nd Annual American Airlines Celebrity Golf / Tennis Weekend, presented by Citi MasterCard, which will be held October 6 – 9, 2016. This premier charity golf tournament is hosted by the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort and the Del Mar Country Club, two of the most elegant resorts in Southern California.
Throughout the weekend, while you’re enjoying the golf, tennis, scenery, cuisine, company and the luxury of this world-class resort, you’ll also be making an important contribution to funding the fight against breast cancer.
Your generous donations help fund the Susan G. Komen Young Investigators Grant program, where researchers are making advances against metastatic breast cancer and triple negative breast cancer, an aggressive form of the disease. Collectively, Susan G. Komen has invested more than $889 million in breast cancer research since 1982. The impact of these dollars has helped increase the five-year relative survival rate for early stage breast cancer, (cancer confined to the breast) from about 74 percent in 1980 to 99 percent today.
However, despite this progress, more than 40,000 people will lose their lives to breast cancer in the U.S. this year, so we must continue to fund potentially life-saving research. Your donations bring hope to the millions of women affected by breast cancer, their families and loved ones.
American Airlines is honored to have worked with Susan G. Komen for many years, educating women and men on the importance of early detection and providing educational materials to thousands across the country.
Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Citi MasterCard.
