On August 19th, Plaza associates Dwain Bostic, Shane Blackburn, Garret Gallagher, and Manny Acuna played in the annual Huntington's Disease Society of America golf tournament at Steele Canyon Golf Resort in Jamul, CA. Plaza sponsored a foursome to play in the tournament and they sure didn't disappoint! They posted the lowest team score with a 58 and won the tournament! Shane ended up eagling a hole all by himself to help the team win, while Garret closed out the round in fashion with a birdie on the 18th hole.
As winners of the tournament, they are able to participate in the Randy Jones Invitational, which is a tournament that includes top finishers from charity golf tournaments around the county. If they are able to pass the semifinals and win the finals, $10,000 will be donated to the Huntington’s Disease Society and they will get to fly on a private jet to go play Pebble Beach
. So let’s hope they can keep it going!
All proceeds from the tournament will benefit the San Diego chapter of the Huntington's Disease Society of America in the fight to improve the lives of people affected by HD and their families. The HDSA is a group that Julie Manson and her husband volunteer with.
