10th Annual Hack n' Smack
Celebrity Golf tournament
honoring Kerry Daveline
Monday, April 15, 2013
Such a day. Thank you for letting me be a part of a greater good. I lost two friends in January to cancer. Three more recently diagnosed hang in the balance. I can only imagine how you bust your ass getting this event done each year... you kick ass each and every time. Again, thank you inviting me. It's an honor.– Jeremy Ratchford (Cold Case)
The Hack n' Smack tournament helps raise awareness and dollars to fight melanoma. I am proud to be affiliated with this event.– Richard Schiff (The West Wing)
I had one of the best times ever in a golf tournament. I am a retired lobbyist that played in tournaments for a living. Nothing touches this one! Plus, I got to meet and play with Robert Hayes and Eric. Also, I won closest to the pin on the sixth hole! Love the Budlight golf bag! Mia invited me and I look forward to next year.– Stanley Lee (Aquatic Foundation)
Melanoma is historically one of the most underfunded cancers and yet more and more people are diagnosed with the disease each year. I'm glad I can help bring awareness to this terrible disease. Hopefully, the money we raise each year... will one day lead to a cure.– Chris Gorham (Harper's Island)
The Hack n' Smack, Kerry Daveline Memorial Celebrity Golf Classic is a five-year old affair quickly becoming one of the preeminent charitable golf tournaments in Southern California.– Steve Strauss (USA Today)
The Hack n' Smack tournament is the fulfillment of a promise made to Kerry Daveline by his friend, Kevin West, to combine their shared passion for golf with the fight against melanoma.
Kerry, an actor-singer, was known for his humor, his Notre Dame caps, and his habit of befriending strangers.
In 2003, Kerry lost his 5 year fight with Melanoma, and in 2004, the first Hack n' Smack was held.
In 2005, at the 2nd Annual event, Kerry's infant twin daughters who never met their father, made their first appearance at the tournament. They're now committed for an annual play date, in Daddy's memory.
