Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf
is hosting the second annual Getzlaf Golf Shootout on September 8 and 9. This spectacular charity event will be held at the beautiful Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point.
A pre-golf dinner reception will be held at Sutra in Costa Mesa. Join gold medalist and NHL All-Star Ryan Getzlaf, along with other NHL stars, celebrities and community leaders to support CureDuchenne, a nonprofit based in Newport Beach that raises awareness and funds for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Duchenne is the most devastating and lethal muscular disease in children. It impacts one in 3,500 boys. Boys are usually diagnosed at age 5, are in a wheelchair by 12 and most don’t live past their mid-20s.
“My wife, Paige, and I are happy to continue our support for CureDuchenne and their valued efforts in finding a cure for Duchenne,” Getzlaf said. “Both Paige and I can’t imagine what it would be like for our son to grow up and not to be able to walk, run or play sports. We want to provide help for many generations to come of Duchenne boys.”
CureDuchenne has funded seven research projects that have gone into human clinical trials. All the funds raised will support the most promising research to find a cure for Duchenne.
The Getzlaf Golf Shootout is an opportunity to interact with your favorite players, play golf at a great venue and support a great cause. Foursomes cost $2,800 and include a celebrity or athlete as a fifth golfer plus eight tickets to the pre-golf dinner reception.
Please join Ryan and his wife, Paige, for a fun-filled day and support CureDuchenne. For more information and to register, click here.
