Sally and Mack Brown will host the third annual Champions to CureDuchenne presented by RBC Wealth Management on April 27, 2012 at The University of Texas Golf Club (2200 University Club Drive, Austin, TX). Cost is $150 per person and includes admission, food and beverages. Champions to CureDuchenne is a fundraiser for CureDuchenne, which funds groundbreaking research to save the 300,000 boys worldwide who have Duchenne.
In 2011, more than 500 guests joined Sally and Mack Brown including coaching staff, celebrities, and former UT players like Vince Young, Ricky Williams, Colt McCoy and more. This year, guests dressed in "cowboy chic" will enjoy a relaxed evening that will feature chefs from eight Austin area restaurants including Vince Young Steakhouse, Max's Wine Dive, Steiner Ranch Steakhouse, Zax, Cook Well & Co., The League, Moonshine and University of Texas Golf Club. Several of the restaurants will also be donating a week sales of an item on their menu to CureDuchenne.
Guests will also enjoy live music from the Hot Club of Cowtown, wine from Duchman Family Winery, beer from Thirsty Planet Brewing, and signature Bevo-ritas with Dulce Vida Organic Tequila. Other sponsors include Covert Cadillac, AT&T and Carino's Italian. The evening also includes a silent and live auction and an inspirational program including remarks by Mack Brown.
"This year we will build on the momentum of previous Champions to CureDuchenne events that have raised funds that have gone directly to key research projects," said Tim Revell, Duchenne parent and event organizer. "We have created a signature event in Austin, and we will continue to raise awareness and funds to push the research to ultimately find a cure."
