CARLSBAD – Birdie or bogey each hole, it doesn’t matter. Each swing at the Cheyne’s Brain Charity Golf Tournament is an ace. Tee off on Friday, April 21 at the Pala Mesa Resort Golf Club to help community members affected by traumatic brain injuries.
Held on one of Southern California’s most challenging courses, the tournament features a putting contest, course games such as “Longest Drive” and “Closest to the Pin” as well as a dinner for golfers and guests with auction tables, a live auction and “Win the Bin” raffle where a 48-bottle of wine gift is up for grabs.
Entry into the third annual tournament is $700 per foursome. Not a golfer? Just come for dinner. The cost is $50 and tickets can be
purchased online at or in-person. Raffle tickets are available for online purchase at one ticker for $10 or six for $50. The winner does not need to be present.
All event proceeds benefit the Cheyne’s Brain Foundation.
The community-based charity, named for Cheyne Johnston who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury in April 2014, supports individuals impacted by often debilitating and tragic traumatic brain injuries.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2.5 million TBI-related emergency room visits happened in 2013 alone. Of those visits, some 282,000 resulted in hospitalizations.
An estimated 153 people die every day in the United States from injuries that include TBI, and those who survive often face severe
effects that can last the rest of their lives, such as impaired thinking, memory, movement, sensation and emotional functions. But the effects of a traumatic brain injury are not only felt by the individual. They can also have lasting impacts on their family and surrounding community.
The Cheyne C. Johnston Foundation is dedicated to assisting these individuals.
Funds raised will support the foundation’s continued community outreach efforts, including supplying families of patients at Scripps
Memorial Hospital La Jolla with support bags during their hospital stays and funding scholarships for those studying the effects, care
and rehabilitation of TBI.
Limited corporate sponsorships and discounted room rates are still available. Sponsorship opportunities range from a “Hole Sponsor”
for $500 to “Presenting Sponsor” for $12,000.
