Charity golf tournament to benefit Lupus

Myrtle Beach, SC -

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A charity golf event is raising money to help find a cure for Lupus.

Myrtle Beach National will host the 2nd annual Chris Wilcox Charity Golf Outing.

The July 10 shotgun scramble tournament will begin at 10 a.m. on MBN's South Creek course.

Wilcox is a North Carolina native and is currently a forward with the NBA's Detroit Pistons.

"Right now there is no cure, or known cause for Lupus and 90 percent of those affected are women," Wilcox said. "After losing my aunts and seeing how my sister is affected by it, finding a cure for Lupus has become a personal crusade for me. I hope the Myrtle Beach community will come out to support this event and have some fun for a good cause."

Wilcox will be joined at the tournament by South Carolina native and current Charlotte Bobcats guard Raymond Felton. Other celebrities are expected to be announced prior to the event.

Registration for the 18-hole tournament is $75 per person or $300 per foursome, according to event organizers. Prizes will be awarded for the top three teams, closest to the pin and longest drive. Sponsorships are also available.

For more information and to register, contact (713) 982-8500.
