For anyone in Vegas on Monday.... Natalie's Charity Event is at Rio Secco

Natalie Gulbis Golf Classic


It is to Benefit the Boy's and Girls Club of Henderson.

Her twitter feed also posted a link to a silent auction to buy memorabilia from various athletes.

I didn't see any LPGA stuff in that, but there is NBA, MLB, NFL, etc.

When she has time she does a few of these a year.

A few years ago she did one in Tennessee benefiting 'diaper love' (a group that buys diapers for low income moms) and the Boys and Girls Club, and she also did one at The Loon Resort in Michigan that benefited the United Way (I think) and the Boys and Girls Club.

This golf club is home to her instructor Butch Harmon. The Loon Resort in MI is where Butch Harmon has a School of Golf. I don't know if there was any similar connection with Harmon at the Tennessee event.

The Tennessee event was with an event with a sponsor Purely Products. The diaper love connection was the sponsor's favorite charity so it was there event that she helped with it.

She also does events for the Special Olympics because of her McGladrey sponsorship and S.O. is their charity.

As far as the Loon goes, I don't know this for a fact but I think both she and Butch have stake in it. I know they have Condo's (at least one) with her name on it you can rent and they were listed on her website as a sponsor.

Her website is under development right now but the old site listed them.
