Golf at Grove XXIII, WM Phoenix Open VIP among the items in this auction
There are great experiences to be won at the Del Mar Country Club Golf Tournament and Gala Dinner.
The purpose of the function Saturday in Rancho Sante Fe, Calif., is to raise money for the Special Operations Forces (SOF) Support Foundation, but the auction prices are next level. It may be the only way most of us have a chance to do some of these things.
For example, do you want to play golf at Michael Jordan’s private golf club, the Grove XXIII? Oh, and for this round of golf, you’ll be playing alongside Michael Strahan, who won a Super Bowl as a member of the New York Giants.
Maybe you’d rather head to the Arizona desert in February for a VIP weekend for back-to-back tickets to the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale, and a pair of tickets to Super Bowl LVII, which is just getting started. after the final round through town in Glendale at the home of the Arizona Cardinals.
Or maybe your thing is a weekend in Vegas with a stay at the MGM Grand, a round of golf at Shadow Creek Golf Club with musician and golf buff Darius Rucker, and a private dinner.
There will be plenty more up for auction at the event, which begins with an 18-hole golf course before the gala. Special guests at the event include keynote speaker Michéle Flournoy, featured speaker Michael W. MacKay and special guest Retired Navy SEAL Bob Harward.
Flournoy served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Strategy under President Bill Clinton and Under Secretary of Defense for Policy under President Barack Obama. MacKay is a Member of Defense in the Washington, DC House of Representatives, serving as Military Assistant to the Legislative Director for Defense, Nuclear, Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Issues. Harvard is a retired United States Navy SEAL and former deputy commander of United States Central Command.
