Regrettably, Golfers vs Brain Cancer Foundation is currently in an ongoing investigation with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department of alleged misappropriation of Foundation funds by our former Secretary/Treasurer Sara Monaco. Restitution is already well under way, and we are very fortunate to announce recovery of a majority of the funds in question. Furthermore, we also eagerly announce that all of our obligations/pledges to our charitable partners can be 100% fulfilled. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department for their professional assistance in this matter as we continue to work towards complete resolution and restitution which will allow us to remain focused on our motto- “Let’s Find A Cure!”

Our Sponsors


Golfers vs Brain Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation with a goal of finding a cure for brain cancer. Proceeds from these events benefit local partners such as Moffitt Cancer Research Center, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, as well as families directly impacted by this terrible disease. Our inspiration 13 years ago, was Melissa Pittman and her legacy lives on through GVBC. Her story is inspiring and to date, we have raised over $1,000,000 for brain cancer research for Melissa’s mission: “Let’s find a cure.”
