Dates given for Sheckler Foundation annual charitable event

August 4, 2017 by  

Ryan Sheckler, a professional skateboarder and philanthropist, and the Sheckler Foundation have announced the dates for the 10th Annual Oakley Charity Golf Tournament and Gala.

The Sheckler Foundation is joined by Monarch Beach Resort & Golf Links in sponsoring this year’s Charity Golf Tournament. This two-day event begins with a gala complete with a red-carpet entrance followed by a cocktail reception complete with a cigar lounge. After that, guests will have the opportunity to bid in live as well as silent auctions, dine, and enjoy the entertainment part of the evening commences.

The second day of the event will find guests fully engaged in the nautical themed tournament at Dana Point’s unique Monarch golf course where each hole offers a view of surf breaks. Organizers have a whole day full of fun activities planned, including lunch and entertainment for golfers on the green, raffles, 200-ft. ball drop from a helicopter, cocktails at sunset, and an awards ceremony.

When poster printing time comes for the charity event, year in and year out the gala and tournament has had celebrities and athletes to include in its marketing. Among those who have come to help raise money for the Sheckler Foundation’s ‘Be the Change’ initiative are Brody Jenner, Wilmer Valderrama, Kelly Slater, and Lil Jon.

This year’s tournament and gala, which is taking place September 9-10, will honor a board member of the Sheckler Foundation, Steve Astephen.
