Harold & Carole Pump Celebrity Golf and Dinner

The 16th Annual Harold & Carole Pump Celebrity Golf Tournament & Dinner, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Friday August 12, 2016 was once again a huge success! The mission of the Foundation is to raise funds and create awareness for the treatment and cure of cancer. By engaging the community, sports leaders and those touched by this disease, financial support is given to the development of cancer treatments, programs and services, as well as the procurement of advanced medical technology. The event brought out many A-List Hall of Fame athletes and celebrities to support this wonderful cause. Twin brothers, David and Dana Pump, once again rolled out the red carpet for their annual Foundation event.

This year’s event honored Elgin Baylor, former Los Angeles Laker and NBA Rookie of the Year in 1958-59; Eric Dickerson, Pro Football Hall of Fame and NFL’s 2nd leading rusher of all-time; David M. Winfield, National Baseball Hall of Famer in 2001, and Jerry Haffey Sr., founder of Ambrosia Treatment Centers.

Using their unique relationship-building talents and skills, Dana and David Pump and the Foundation has raised more than $7 million over the years for the Carole Pump Women’s Center, Harold and Carole Pump Department of Radiation Oncology, and the Thomas & Dorothy Leavey Cancer Center at Dignity Health - Northridge Hospital and other non-profit community charities.

Elgin Baylor played 14 seasons in the NBA for the Minnesota/Los Angeles Lakers, appearing in eight NBA Finals. The No. 1 draft pick in 1958 and NBA Rookie of the Year in 1958-59, an 11-time NBA All-Star, and named to the All-NBA First Team 10 times—he and Bill Russell were the first African-American players to achieve that honor—Elgin is considered one of the game’s all-time greatest players. Because of his dazzling, acrobatic moves on the court— often seemingly hanging in midair while taking his trademark jump shot—he has been called “The Godfather of Hang Time.” Strong and graceful at 6-5 and 225 pounds, Elgin averaged 27.4 points and 13.5 rebounds during his career. In 134 playoff games, he averaged 27.0 points and 12.9 rebounds. Elgin Baylor’s legacy is indelible as one of the elite players in NBA history. In an interview with the San Francisco Examiner, his former teammate Tommy Hawkins may have said it best: "Pound for pound, no one was ever as great as Elgin Baylor." 

Eric Dickerson was selected second overall in the 1983 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams. An immediate success, he established rookie records for most rushing attempts (390), most rushing yards gained (1,808) and most touchdowns rushing (18), including another two receiving touchdowns. His efforts earned him All-Pro, Pro Bowl, Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors. Jerry Haffey Sr. founded Ambrosia Treatment Centers nearly a decade ago. Over the course of its operation, Ambrosia has been responsible for helping treat over 7,500 clients and counting. Since Ambrosia’s inception, Jerry has allotted scholarships for nearly 500 clients, totaling almost $5,000,000 in addition to over $1,000,000 donated to various charities. Ambrosia has recently launched the Ambrosia Foundation, whose mission is to raise funds to help educate and treat those affected by addiction. 

David Winfield’s professional career began in 1973, drafted out of the University of Minnesota after earning the MVP of the Men’s College Baseball World Series. Drafted by the NFL, NBA, ABA, the San Diego Padres selected him as their first round draft pick. In San Diego, never spending a day in the Minors, he became a league leader and All Star. He followed that with 8 All-Star seasons with the New York Yankees. In 1990, he joined the California Angels, followed by a magical year with the Toronto Blue Jays where he drove in the winning run of the 1992 World Series. Dave returned to his native Minnesota and reached the 3,000th hit milestone with the Twins. He ended his 22-year career after the 1995 season with the American League Champion Cleveland Indians. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001 — his first year of eligibility. Today he serves as Adviser to the Executive Director of the Major League Baseball Players Association.
