Celebrities Come Out for Charity Golf Tourney

Vegas got a shot of star power last week when Justin hosted the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Ellen DeGeneres, Josh Duhamel, George Lopez, Amanda Beard, and many other celebrities all came out to lend support. The tournament, an official PGA Tour event, benefitted Shriners Hospitals for Children, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing specialty care regardless of their family’s financial situation. An avid golfer and philanthropist, Justin was thrilled to lend his name to the tournament. He shared his excitement as the tournament began, “I thank the PGA tour and the Shriners Hospitals for Children for this amazing opportunity. Raising money to better children’s lives while playing golf? I can’t think of a better way to pass the time.” Pro golfer Marc Turnesa was the big winner at the end of the week. Congrats Marc!
