Emmory Reagan Shapses Classic to raise funds for tuberous sclerosis.
Numerous sponsorship opportunities are available for the event, which will include 18 holes of golf at the scenic course, use of the club's amenities, a cocktail party and a buffet dinner. Special events include a long driving contest, a closest to the pin contest, and a closest to the pin shootout for a Baume et Mercier wristwatch. A hole-in-one on a par-3 hole will earn a two-year lease on a Ford Mustang convertible.
Following dinner there will be a raffle and a live auction featuring such great prizes as a Baume et Mercier wristwatch, a Cartier wristwatch, a trip to the Caribbean, and much more. A silent auction will follow offering memorabilia from the HBO series "The Sopranos" and rare items from sporting legends Mickey Mantle, Muhammed All and more.
All proceeds will be dedicated to Tuberous Sclerosis, a disorder that affects one in 6,000 children, causing seizures, tumors, organ failure, autism, mental disability and worse.
"The response to previous outings by the real estate industry has been overwhelming," said Marc Shapses, senior managing director at Julien J. Studley, Inc., whose daughter Emmory Reagan Shapses suffers from Tuberous Sclerosis. "In the past two years we have been able to raise $650,000 for the fight against Tuberous Sclerosis, and we expect to build on that success this year."
Emmory Reagan Shapses was born on Jan. 20, 1997. Typifying a lack of awareness of Tuberous Sclerosis in the medical community, Emmory was misdiagnosed for 4 1/2 months before doctors realized she had the disorder.
Funding will go to the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, the only national, non-profit organization that provides support to those with Tuberous Sclerosis and their families. The organization, which was founded in 1974 by four mothers of children with Tuberous Sclerosis, awards grants to researchers and provides education to families and the medical community.
