Burbank, CA (PRWEB) October 3, 2007
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's 9th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic featured Solstice™ Goji Bars in gift baskets for such luminaries as Sylvester Stallone, Sharon Stone, James Caan, and Joe Pesci. The golf classic is one of the most renowned celebrity golf tournaments on the national circuit and attracts film, television, and professional sports stars to raise money for life saving programs for children and families afflicted with pediatric AIDS, raising $650,000 in 2006.
The sold-out 2007 golf classic in Burbank, CA garnered the support of Billy Crystal, Joe Mantegna, Kevin Nealon, Don Johnson, Michael Chiklis, Dave Winfield, Bruce Jenner, and Sugar Ray Leonard, among many others. Numerous high-profile celebrities are attracted to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's events year after year due to the dramatic success the foundation has had in combating mother to child transmission of AIDS, down to under 2% due in no small part to the groundbreaking work of the foundation.
Reiner Bohlen, co-owner of Solstice Bakery in Corvallis, OR, said that "The decision to contribute to such a well-run and effective organization was a no-brainer. My wife Stephanie and I have long believed that every child deserves a chance at a healthy life, and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation does a fantastic job in working towards achieving that goal. For our part, we created our Solstice™ Goji Bars in part to provide a healthy snack that kids would actually want to eat, so the 9th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic seemed like a perfect fit."
Solstice™ Goji Bars with Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter are 70% organic and are made from whole grains, fruits, nuts, seeds, and other all-natural -- easily pronounceable -- ingredients. Each bar contains a full day's supply of antioxidants, is high in fiber, and a good source of protein as well as omega-3 fatty acids. The goji berries in each bar are also a good source of amino acids, vitamin C, and immune-enhancing polysaccharides.
