NBA All-Star Ray Allen and his wife, Shannon teamed up with South Florida philanthropists Andria and Javier Holtz and their families to co-chair the Ray Allen Golf Classic and Ray of Hope Luncheon, benefiting the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRIF) and JDRF.
I was honored to be a part of this event. It was a beautiful day at La Gorce Country CLub in Miami beach. Both families have been touched by juvenile diabetes and contribute their time, energy and resources to raise money for this cause.
On the course, it was fun to see Lebron James and Chris Anderson aka Birdman and all the attendees golfing, conversing and having a great time for the cause under the wonderful Florida sunshine. All the foursomes received a picture with the Miami Heat Championship trophies to take home. The ladies enjoyed an indoor luncheon and auction. As always it was great to see Lori Jennings do introductions. They auction off some beautiful handbags, and had some fabulous food.
The fundraiser was a huge success and I can’t wait till next year!
