DENVER, COLO—May 17 and 18, 2008. The Dave Diaz Infante & Mark Schlereth Charity Golf Classic is celebrating its seventh annual charity gala and golf tournament at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center.
The Golf tournament is one of the largest Celebrity tournaments in the State of Colorado. Celebrities and participants are invited by Hunter’s Dream for a Cure for a weekend of fun and entertainment in an effort to raise money for children with Sturge Weber Syndrome (SWS), a rare brain disorder with no known cure and no definitive prognosis for those it affects.
“This is our foundations feature event and truly a shining star for Hunter’s Legacy! With your generosity and support we are making a difference in the lives of children with Sturge-Weber Syndrome, neurological diseases and the lives of special needs children in Colorado!” said Robb Nelson, founder of Hunter’s Dream for a Cure.
The weekend kicks off with a cocktail party, meet and greet, and autograph session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a silent and live auction, dinner, and dancing to the Freddie-Henchi Band. Events continue Sunday with lunch, pictures, and an 18-hole celebrity golf tournament. The weekend wraps up with an evening barbeque and awards ceremony.
Participants will have the opportunity to bid on a variety of donated memorabilia from celebrities and local businesses. The silent and live auction includes: A “Bad Boy” hunting buggy, autographed jerseys, pictures, footballs, and baseballs. Other donated items include: gift certificates, paintings, gift baskets, spa packages and more!
