The small-but-mighty Kelly’s Heroes running team of Bill Kettelberger, Kacey Kelly and Luke Schlaifer followed in Steve Kelly’s footsteps by finishing the Ocean City, N.J., half-marathon Sept. 26. Thanks to generous donors, their efforts raised $5,000 in the race for a cure.
We’ll be lacing up the sneakers again in 2022, so watch future this space and our social media platforms to join Team Kelly’s Heroes and pound the boards for pancreatic cancer!
Our Teed Off! Golf Outing, rained out by Tropical Storm Ida, has been rescheduled for Thursday, Sept. 16, at Mercer Oaks. Everything else remains unchanged — the 9 am. start time, the post-match buffet and raffles, the Hole in One contest and the same important cause to bring hope to pancreatic cancer patients.
If you had previously signed up to golf on our original date, please reply before Sept. 9 to Rich at email@example.com and let us know: Yes, you plan to join us on the new date; or no, the new date doesn’t work for you. (Please include mailing information for your refund.)
For the safety and comfort of our golfers, sponsors and volunteers, we have suspended our Teed Off! Golf Outing for tomorrow, Sept. 1, as the remnants of Hurricane Ida bring rain and thunderstorms to our area. We will confer with the golf club to identify a potential rain date in the coming weeks and will be in touch soon with golfers and sponsors regarding next steps. You may also check this site for updates. Thank you, as always, for your support and understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon to continue our unfinished business against pancreatic cancer!
Our Teed Off! Golf Outing to Fight Pancreatic Cancer is one week from today, and it wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors. These generous, community-minded businesses help us raise hope for those facing pancreatic cancer. Proceeds from our golf outing support the $100,000 Steve Kelly Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research at Johns Hopkins. Many thanks to our Ace Sponsors Blue Rock Construction, Erytech, Hydro and Pennsylvania Steel Co.; our Eagle Sponsors M&T Bank, Philadelphia Inquirer and Bob Cottone/Rue Insurance; and our Birdie Sponsor Habib Law.

We all know that good health is priceless, so out of an abundance of caution we have decided to postpone our St. Patrick’s Day party March 13 to protect our guests and volunteers amid the growing coronavirus concerns. We will reschedule our event for a date in the near future as soon as the coronavirus situation quiets down.
Friday, March 13, is your lucky day! It’s Kelly’s Heroes’ 5th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Party, where we party for a purpose – a better future for those facing pancreatic cancer.
The annual event will be held 7 to 11 p.m. at Mercer Oaks in Princeton Junction, New Jersey. Proceeds benefit the Steve Kelly Fund for Pancreatic Research at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.
Your registration includes Irish-inspired hors d’oeuvres, dinner buffet, open bar, entertainment by the Denogla Ardmore dancers, an open dance floor with DJ Kyle, raffles and more! Steve Kelly always called his annual St. Patrick’s Day party one of the best days of the year. Let’s celebrate his memory and continue his legacy of hope.
Kelly’s Heroes’ 5th Annual Teed Off! Golf Outing marked a major milestone Oct. 8, as the nonprofit announced the establishment of the $100,000 Steve Kelly Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.
“This is made possible through your generous support,” Kelly’s Heroes co-founder Kerry McKean Kelly told the golfers and sponsors gathered at the event. “You make hope happen.”
A record turnout of 96 golfers hit the links with Kelly’s Heroes, raising $16,000 to support clinical trials for those diagnosed with the world’s toughest cancer.
The winner of the Green Jacket — a Steve Kelly tradition — was Bob Knorr. Congratulations also to the winning team of Bill Habib, Luke Habib, Matt Pruitt and Tom Rozmus. Second place went to Steve Kettelberger, Jim Bergen, Joe Quattrone and Christine Anderson, while third place went to Tom Meneskie, Rich Bloemeke and Jim Dailey.
Kelly’s Heroes also extends its thanks to its generous sponsors:
Join us Oct. 8, 2019, at Mercer Oaks in Princeton Junction, N.J., for our 5th Annual Teed Off! Golf Outing to Fight Pancreatic Cancer. All proceeds benefit patient clinical trials at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins in memory of Steve Kelly, who never stopped waging hope.
Enjoy the Mercer Oaks East course in a 9 a.m. shotgun start in a four-person best ball scramble. Your $150 registration includes 18 holes, golf cart, boxed lunch and drinks on course, prizes and a post-match dinner buffet with cocktails. If you’re lucky, you could win a raffle basket or the prestigious Kelly’s Heroes green jacket.
We invite sponsors to join us for golf and networking. It’s a good time, a great cause and a wonderful way to showcase your organization’s commitment to the community.
While we pride ourselves on running a fun and friendly golf event, we’re serious about our cause. Pancreatic cancer is the deadliest of all major cancers, with a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent. Our inspiration Steve Kelly was one of the 40,000 people annually who die of the disease. As an all-volunteer 501c3, Kelly’s Heroes devotes 100 percent of its proceeds to ensure a future of hope for others facing pancreatic cancer.
