“A Night on the Red Carpet”

Club LeConte, a ClubCorp partner will be hosting “A Night on the Red Carpet,” September 24, 2009 to raise funds and awareness for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Saving Little Hearts, and the Employee Partners Care Foundation.

Each year, ClubCorp affiliates participate in a charity event on the same day to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, specifically “Augie’s Quest,” an initiative within MDA that is an aggressive, cure-driven effort singularly focused on treatments and cures for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease), and the ClubCorp Employee Partners Care Foundation making it the world’s largest charity event. Club LeConte has chosen to add Saving Little Hearts to their list of recipients. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to these special causes. 

Saving Little Hearts was founded in Knoxville, TN and is dedicated to helping children with congenital heart defects and their families by providing emotional assistance and educational information primarily through the distribution of Care Packages.

MDA is a nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.

The purpose of the Employee Partners Care Foundation (E.P.C.F.) is to provide assistance to ClubCorp Employee Partners and their immediate family members during times of need.

Last year, ClubCorp properties raised more than $1.6 million through their events.

Tickets for the event will be $75 per person and the evening will include heavy hors d’oeuvres, and open bar, casino games, a silent auction, and live music by the band R.M.S.

“The ClubCorp Charity Classic and the ClubCorp team are making the most significant difference in our quest for a cure for ALS, “ said Augie Nieto, MDA’s national vice president and chief inspiration officer. “The technology and science are converging to make a cure possible, and ClubCorp will play a major role in making a cure a reality.”
