Golfing for Charity

Golfing for Charity

This summer golfing for charity is a wonderful thing from coast to coast.

On June 27, Halt ALS hosted a charity golf tournament at Hominy Hill Golf Course. Funds raised benefited Chris Tschupp to receive treatments as well as fast-track ALS research and progress by Dr. Richard Bedlack, MD, PhD, Director, ALS Clinic, Duke Health.

ALS is a rare neurological disease involving the breakdown of neurons that control voluntary muscles leading to the inability to eat, speak, move and even breathe. There are treatments for ALS but no cure. Tschupp, former pro-hockey player, actor, model, screenwriter, was diagnosed with ALS in 2019. Chris Tschupp and Team are dedicated to the fight to #HaltALS.

The NFT for auction included a built-in trip for two to Edgewood Tahoe as well as a 3D-printed version of the celebrity-signed golf ball enclosed in a Lucite box. In addition, American Century also brought back the fan favorite ACC Fantasy Golf program where fans pick a team of five players to have a chance to win airfare, hotel and tickets to the 2023 American Century Championship, plus $10,000 to the winner’s charity of choice.  

And coming up, on July 18, Rich “Big Daddy” Salgado will co-host the Big Daddy Celebrity Golf Classic & Gala, a highly anticipated event, at the world-renowned Oheka Castle.
