The Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation is hosting its 7th Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and Dinner next Monday, August 9, where players can meet celebrities, compete for prizes and, most important, support a great cause. Noah, Sean's father and the president of the foundation, joined PIX Morning News today to discuss the event, as well as the importance of screening for testicular cancer.
Monday's festivities include a silent auction, raffles, a buffet dinner, and of course, the golf tournament. The players will include sports legends Darryl Strawberry, Ron Darling, and Rich Caster. In addition, New York Mets hall of famer Ed Kranepool will be honored at the event.
Sean Kimerling was an Emmy award-winning sports anchor for WPIX who sadly lost his life to testicular cancer in 2003. He was 37-years-old. Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men younger than 40, and though it's treatable, early detection is a must. Noah established the Sean Kimerling Testicular Cancer Foundation to raise awareness about early diagnosis and treatment.
Everyone who registers will automatically be entered to win a chance to anchor on PIX News at 10 with sportscaster Lolita Lopez.
