"For golf fans, there's no more desirable ticket, and no tougher ticket to get, than one to Augusta. We feel this is a terrific opportunity not only to raise funds for a worthy cause, but also to help bring attention to Golf to End Cancer and the tremendous potential that golf has to spread the word about healthy lifestyle choices."

Golf to End Cancer is supported by Celebrity Charitable Network, the non-profit foundation run by Pro Football Hall of Famer Chris Doleman, who played 15 years in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings, San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons.
