PGA TOUR winner, University of Nevada Las Vegas alum and Las Vegas resident Charley Hoffman announces the Charley Hoffman Foundation Las Vegas Pro Am will take place on Monday, Oct. 1, 2012. The event will be played at TPC Summerlin, the host course of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, an Official PGA TOUR Event.

Hoffman and his wife Stacy created the Foundation in 2009 to raise awareness and financial support for a variety of children’s charities in their native San Diego as well as their adopted hometown of Las Vegas. Last year’s Pro Am event in Las Vegas raised more than $100,000 to benefit five local charities: Blessings in a Backpack, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Las Vegas, as well as the Transportation Fund of the local Zelzah Shrine Temple.

Participants of the Pro Am will enjoy the unique opportunity to play a round of golf inside the ropes of an official PGA TOUR tournament course alongside a professional PGA TOUR player. Last year, PGA TOUR professionals included Spencer Levin, Bill Lunde, Chad Campbell, among others.

The tournament will start at 1 p.m. after Hoffman provides a clinic, divulging the secrets of his great golf game.  Concluding play, participating amateurs and professionals will honor winners at a dinner and auction at Nove Italiano at Palms Casino Resort. Guests will enjoy a cocktail hour and silent auction followed by a four-course dinner prepared by Chef Geno Bernardo. After dinner, attendees are invited to Ghostbar and will receive VIP admission including a complimentary beverage.

Entry fees are $2,100 per player and $7,400 for a foursome. Space is limited. For questions and to register for the event, contact Megan Mahoney at 858.558.8277 or megan@sdjga.org.
