Our honoree this year Coach Pearl is making a difference in Alabama in the fight against cancer. Coach Pearl is committed to raising awareness of cancer prevention and early detection by helping us raise money to benefit cancer patients and programs.
In four years as head coach at Auburn, Bruce Pearl has led the Tigers to 70 wins, a Southeastern Conference Championship and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament with both coming this past season.
Pearl started the AUTLIVE program at Auburn in 2015-16 to benefit cancer patients in the fight to beat cancer. AUTLIVE raises the awareness of cancer prevention and detection while t-shirt sales and donations raise money to benefit cancer patients and their local hospitals.
“We are extremely excited that Coach Pearl will serve as the honoree for this year’s Tee It Up Fore Life event,” said Winston Busby, volunteer chairman of Tee It Up Fore Life. “His passion and energy are contagious, and we are grateful for his participation this year. We are looking forward to fighting cancer and supporting a wonderful cause.”
We are honored to have Coach Pearl join us at this year’s Tee It Up Fore Life tournament and hope that you will join with us to lead the fight for a world without cancer.
A big thank you to our American Cancer Society Corporate Friends!
