Charitybuzz Offers Once-In-A-Lifetime Golf Experience
A Charitybuzz auction is offering a once-in-a-lifetime golf experience with the stars at the brand-new Panther National Club, which Justin Thomas helped design. As part of this exclusive experience, Greyson Clothiers will outfit the winner before their special round with the stars. More details are listed on the auction page found here.
The auction closes October 3rd and is raising funds for The Morgan Hoffmann Foundation, which empowers individuals on their health and healing journey. When Morgan Hoffmann noticed issues with his health during his successful years on the PGA Tour, he discovered his diagnosis of a rare form of muscular dystrophy. In the face of what modern medicine deems an incurable disease, Hoffmann found healing through natural modalities. Along with his wife Chelsea, Hoffmann formed his Foundation and healing space to share what he had learned.
