To our friends, family, and loyal supporters,

Thank you for your continued support over the past 21 years. We are excited to announce the 21st Annual “El Rey Banana” 2024 Golf Outing will take place on Monday, July 15th, 2024, at the Brookville Country Club in Brookville, NY.

The past golf outings have been the Foundation’s major fundraising events of the year. We have raised over $100,000 at each event to help promote awareness about leukemia and other related cancers while at the same time providing scholarships and a great camp experience to other deserving leukemia patients or their surviving children and siblings. Our success directly correlates to your sponsorship, generosity, and participation, and we are extremely grateful for your support.

The Steven M. Perez Foundation was founded to commemorate the life and lifestyle of Steven Perez. Steven was a special person who lived life to the fullest and enjoyed being with his friends and family. On August 4, 2003, Steven lost his 49-day battle with leukemia, but his spirit continues to live in all the lives he touched in his brief 29 years.  The goal of the Steven M. Perez Foundation continues to be to help patients and families who have been directly or indirectly affected by leukemia and other related cancers. Funds raised in his name will continue to be invested in helping ensure fewer patients and their families are affected by these devastating diseases and those that do can live their lives to the fullest.

Our golf event and silent auction is a great way for corporate and private sponsors to contribute and help raise funds to make a difference for this important cause.  Our sponsors and silent auction partners will have the opportunity to showcase their companies, products, and services to approximately 250 attendees.  Our supporters have been very generous in the past, and we have had great success marketing your businesses and products, particularly to those who live in the New York City area.  If you are interested in sponsoring or donating to this event, please get in touch with Dana Elhai at (631) 523-4006 or Rick Perez at (917) 750-2522.

All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged at the event.  We welcome your interest in the Foundation and look forward to your participation at our event.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  Thank you again for your continued support.
