Annually, since April 2004, The Actors' Network presents the Hack n' Smack, Kerry Daveline, Celebrity Golf Classic at the El Caballero Country Club. We donate 100% of the net proceeds to the UC Irvine School of Medicine Department of Dermatology in support of finding a cure for melanoma.

EVENT YEARS, '04 - '13
This is our 10 year tribute!

Such a day. Thank you for letting me be a part of a greater good. I lost two friends in January to cancer. Three more recently diagnosed hang in the balance. I can only imagine how you bust your ass getting this event done each year... you kick ass each and every time. Again, thank you inviting me. It's an honor.

– Jeremy Ratchford (Cold Case)

The Hack n' Smack tournament helps raise awareness and dollars to fight melanoma. I am proud to be affiliated with this event.

– Richard Schiff (The West Wing)

I had one of the best times ever in a golf tournament. I am a retired lobbyist that played in tournaments for a living. Nothing touches this one! Plus, I got to meet and play with Robert Hayes and Eric. Also, I won closest to the pin on the sixth hole! Love the Budlight golf bag! Mia invited me and I look forward to next year.

– Stanley Lee (Aquatic Foundation)

Melanoma is historically one of the most underfunded cancers and yet more and more people are diagnosed with the disease each year. I'm glad I can help bring awareness to this terrible disease. Hopefully, the money we raise each year... will one day lead to a cure.

– Chris Gorham (Harper's Island)

The Hack n' Smack, Kerry Daveline Memorial Celebrity Golf Classic is a five-year old affair quickly becoming one of the preeminent charitable golf tournaments in Southern California.

– Steve Strauss (USA Today)
About Kerry Daveline
Kerry Daveline

The Hack n' Smack tournament is the fulfillment of a promise made to Kerry Daveline by his friend, Kevin West, to combine their shared passion for golf with the fight against melanoma.

Kerry, an actor-singer, was known for his humor, his Notre Dame caps, and his habit of befriending strangers.

In 2003, Kerry lost his 5 year fight with Melanoma, and in 2004, the first Hack n' Smack was held.
