Celebrities Fight Prostate Cancer at Fifth Annual Know Your Score Golf Tournament and Gala
Washington D.C. – Celebrities including Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Lynn Swann and Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues are helping end prostate cancer at the Fifth Annual Know Your Score Celebrity Golf Tournament and Gala. The event, which benefits ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer, will take place on Saturday, August 18 at Pawleys Plantation Golf & Country Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
“We’re excited that so many sports and entertainment celebrities are coming together for the fifth year in a row to fight this disease that affects so many men and their families,” said Skip Lockwood, ZERO’s CEO. “One in six men will be diagnosed prostate cancer during his life and awareness brings us closer to the cure.”
Participants will get the chance to play a round of golf with celebrities such as Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Lynn Swann and Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues. The gala will feature a sit down dinner and live entertainment.
All proceeds from Know Your Score Golf Tournament and Gala go directly to the fight to end prostate cancer by funding testing, promoting education and awareness, and enabling research that will lead to the cure. Atlantic Urology Clinics and Carolina Regional Cancer Center will serve as title sponsors for the event for a second year in a row.
“Generous support from Atlantic Urology Clinics and Carolina Regional Cancer Center helps to make Know Your Score a success and brings us closer to finding the cure for prostate cancer,” said Heath Carter, ZERO’s Director of Marketing and Communications.
