On Monday, August 8, the TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge in Sammamish, WA will host the 6th Annual “Calling All Angels” Golf Classic to support Augie’s Quest and the ALS Therapy Development Institute in its efforts to find a cure for ALS. Last year’s event raised over $111,000 for ALS research.
Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that leads to the paralysis, and eventual death of those afflicted. At this moment, there are approximately 30,000 people in the US living with ALS, and the average patient survives only two to five years following his or her diagnosis.
The “Calling All Angels” Golf Classic will feature lunch, putting contest, and golf tournament (four person scramble format) on August 8th. Pat Monahan, lead vocalist of the multi-platinum band, Train, will also be in attendance as the event’s honorary chairman! Sponsors of the “Calling All Angels” Golf Classic also include the Land Advisors Organization, ProBuild, Shea Homes, Triple Horn Brewing Company, Choose Your Playbook, LLC., Plats Financial Group, Polygon Homes and First American Title Insurance Company.
All proceeds from the “Calling All Angels” Golf Classic benefit Augie’s Quest, an aggressive, cure driven effort focused on finding treatments and cures for ALS by supporting the research taking place at the ALS Therapy Development Institute.
The “Calling All Angels” Golf Classic will be held on Monday, August 8th, at the TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge in Sammamish, WA. Registration opens at 1:00PM with a shotgun start at 1:45PM.
