Cancer Crusaders 17th Annual Golf Tournament
Honoring Karen Schindler

Kenner, LA  70065

The Cancer Crusaders of Louisiana Golf Tournament is a premier event for a worthy cause.  Proceeds are split equally between the cancer research programs at Tulane Cancer Center and LSU's Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center. 

The golf tournament was started 17 years ago by Mark Mitchell, a cancer survivor. His battle brought him to various centers out of town, and this event was his way to raise money to provide more options to Louisiana residents for local cancer treatment. 

Sponsor participation from many local restaurants and beverage vendors is what sets the Cancer Crusaders of Louisiana Golf Tournament apart. Couple that with immaculate golf conditions, an amazing complimentary breakfast and lunch, generous gift bags, raffles, and a wide array of other prizes and it's a premier event. 

Entertainment goes beyond just the tournament. Golfers can participate in several on-course contests, including the “Hole in One," which can snag a lucky winner one of five premiere prizes, including a brand new car, a trip to the 2024 Ryder Cup and more.  Other contests include a putting contest and closest-to-the-hole, both of which offer guaranteed prizes.
