The third annual Getzlaf Shootout to benefit CureDuchenne will return to Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point on September 8. The tournament is hosted by Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf and his wife, Paige.

Last year’s event drew dozens of celebrities and hockey players alike to help raise funds and awareness for CureDuchenne, a nonprofit committed to finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The second installment of the event raised $200,000, according to event organizer Karen Harley.

Corey Perry, Dustin Penner, Saku Koivu and recent Hall of Fame inductee Scott Niedermayer are all scheduled to participate. Each registered foursome for the event will get paired up with a celebrity or athlete. Foursomes cost $2,800 which comes with eight tickets to the pre-golf dinner reception. Hockey fans who do not wish to golf can still get a chance to rub elbows with the players at the pre-golf reception. Tickets for the reception cost $100.

“Duchenne is a devastating disease that impacts boys and robs them of the ability to walk, run and play sports,” Getzlaf said in a press release. “My wife Paige and I are committed to support CureDuchenne and their efforts in finding a cure for Duchenne. It is urgent to find a cure now in order to give these boys a chance.”

For more information on CureDuchenne and to register for the event go to www.cureduchenne.org or call 949.872.2552.
