The excitement kicked off Sunday evening with the 4th Annual Gala where attendees were welcomed to the Mardi Gras themed evening with a red-carpet entrance and a cocktail reception with music performed by New Orleans natives Kings of Brass. In addition to the live entertainment, the sold-out gala included a live auction and special moment in which the Sheckler Foundation honored Julian Jones (best known as JJ) for his unconditional and unwavering support to the foundation.

The excitement poured over into Monday where celebrities, athletes and loyal supporters arrived at the Mardi Gras themed golf tournament. Golfers started the morning by putting their skills to the test at the $10,000 putting contest sponsored by Art of Sport (AOS).

Mike Glennie, Brock Crouch (Professional Snowboarder and Avalanche survivor), AJ Sjostrom and Jered Stone closed out the night and took home 1 st place with a winning score of 51. Second place went to Matt Sanders (Avenged Sevenfold) team and third place went to Clay Hensley’s (Former Padres’ Pitcher) foursome.
