Panhandle Charitable Open – September 25 – 26

As many of you know, the Panhandle Charitable Open was started in memory of my son John Ryan Peacock, who lost his life in a car accident at the age of 17.

Each year, we hold this charity event not only in his memory but to celebrate gifting to our community in his name.

The Panhandle Charitable Open, a 501c3 non-profit organization, has raised thousands of dollars for local charities thanks to the generous support of businesses and individuals like you. This year is our 14th year bringing this event to the local community.

Mission Statement

The Panhandle Charitable Open (PCO) is dedicated to serving the needs of our community with emphasis on elderly care, special needs situations for children and feeding the hungry. The PCO focuses its funding on committed, grass roots organizations that rely strongly on volunteer efforts and where foundation support will make a significant difference. All of the net proceeds from our efforts go directly to local charity.

The success in recent years of the PCO enabled our board to donate over $535,000 to charities such as Child Guardians, Inc., Gulf Coast Kid’s House, Council on Aging of West Florida, ARC Gateway, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida, Independence for the Blind, American Cancer Society, and Covenant Hospice. The primary charities for 2015 are Child Guardians, Inc., Council on Aging of West Florida, and Gulf Coast Kid’s House. Increasing the number of charities which participate highlights a goal of the PCO to continue to expand the impact and reach of our golf tournament. The PCO has continued to grow in popularity and success each year.

We welcome your participation in the 14th Annual Panhandle Charitable Open as we continue to build this event into the premier charity golf tournament on the Florida Panhandle.

Social, educational and spiritual assistance for individuals impacted by poverty, substance abuse and lack of education is the mission of Pathways For Change.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer – Oct. 31

Posted on: August 2nd, 2015 by brent

Join Us !

Hi, we’re Cat Country 987 – Team “Cat-A-Tude”

Event: Making Strides of Pensacola on Saturday, October 31, 2015

Support Cat Country 987 – Team “Cat-A-Tude”

Why We’re Putting On Our Pink Bras and Making Strides

Welcome to our Team Page! Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, so we’ve decided to make a difference by putting on our pink bras and raising money to walk in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Today 1 out of every 2 women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reaches out to the American Cancer Society for help and support. The donations our team raises will enable investment in groundbreaking breast cancer research, free information and services for women diagnosed with the disease, and access to mammograms for women who need them. Our donations will help more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors celebrate another birthday this year!

Why We Support the American Cancer Society

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, and one dollar at a time. We know that the American Cancer Society is the leader in the fight to end breast cancer. We know that supporting them will ensure that if you need someone to talk to anytime of the day or night, they’ll be there. If your friend is losing her hair from chemo, your mother needs a ride to treatment, or a loved one needs a place to stay when treatment is far from home, they will be there to help.

Join us and “Put On Your Pink Bra”. Together we will walk for a world without breast cancer.
