Spinitar will host the third annual Golf for Hope event, benefiting City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and cancer and diabetes treatment center, on Thursday, October 12, 2017. Taking place at Tustin Ranch Golf Course, in Tustin, California, Spinitar will see a full field at this year’s sold out event, making it the largest turnout ever.
Invited guests and sponsors will take part in a round of golf, followed by a dinner reception where both live and silent auctions will be held. All proceeds raised for the event will go directly to City of Hope and their research efforts to find a cure for cancer, diabetes and other life threatening illnesses.
Special guest speaker and pediatric cancer survivor, Anya Shah, will be in attendance and will speak about her journey and what it means to be a part of the City of Hope foundation. In her bio, Shah says, “I am living proof that you can be diagnosed with a negative, but end with a positive. I fought and won! I am not thinking about the past, rather about today, and tomorrow.”
Also in attendance will be celebrity guest actor, Andy Buckley (pictured below) who is best known for his role as David Wallace on the American comedy series, The Office, and currently stars in the Bravo hit show, Odd Mom Out. “I’m excited to join my friends at Spinitar in supporting the great work done by City of Hope! It’s going to be a fun, fun day,” Buckley said.
In addition to this year's event being the largest to date, Spinitar is proud to have five platinum sponsors, including Crestron, Harman, Middle Atlantic Products, Milestone and Synnex. For a more complete list of sponsors, raffle and auction items, click here.
“We at City of Hope could not be more honored or privileged to partner with Spinitar for their annual Golf for Hope,” stated Andy Ishii, Director of Corporate Philanthropy at City of Hope. “Through the incredible generosity of Jeff, Jay, everyone at Spinitar and its partners, Golf for Hope will have raised more than $200,000 towards life-saving cancer research and treatment at City of Hope over the past three years.”
