Each of us has been touched in some way by family members or friends affected by this unforgiving disease. Thanks to your contribution, we are able to fund the ground breaking research being conducted by the scientists at the Gittlen Cancer Research Institute. These scientists have made many breakthroughs in the areas of cervical and skin cancer research, and others are currently in process.

In recent years, because of the funds raised through the The Jake Gittlen Laboratories for Cancer Research, several discoveries have been made at The Jake Gittlen Laboratories for Cancer Research that have resulted in major advances, with world-wide significance, in the battle against cancer.


The Jake Gittlen Laboratories for Cancer Research is currently a group of seven world class researchers and their associates in individual laboratories. Their work is vital to the on-going battle to treat, control, and hopefully eliminate cancer. Monies raised by the Jake Gittlen Memorial Golf Tournament are exclusively used to support the efforts of this research team. Join the many corporations and individuals in our community that support this effort. From simply joining the contributors at the annual dinner, advertising in the Tournament program book, designating individual players in the Tournament, to playing in the corporate scramble, contributions insure the research will continue well into the future.
