about us.

Supporting the American Cancer Society and giving back is a core value of the Shedlin family. Since beginning the Allan Shedlin Memorial Golf Classic 20+ years ago, they have demonstrated their commitment to the Society's mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.

Each year, the Classic partners with financial corporations to honor a philanthropist in the industry in the spirit of remembering Allan Shedlin, a 32-year American Cancer Society ambassador. Since its inception, the outing has raised more than $10 million to benefit the Society.
