The 18-hole tournament began at 9:30am with breakfast/registration, followed by a Putting Contest with a chance to win a Porsche for the weekend, courtesy of The Auto Gallery. ACT Today! Volunteers lined the pavement holding banners as they cheered the golfers onwards to the course for an 11am Shotgun start. On course, golfers had a chance to Beat the Pro and win cash by golfing against pro golfer Richard Howell. Those who tried their luck at a Hole-in-One had a chance at winning two first class tickets to Paris with four nights of luxurious accommodations, compliments of New York Life Insurance.
The tournament concluded with Cocktails/Silent Auction and a special visit by the LA Laker Girls who mingled with the players and later presented awards to the tournament winners.
