Daniel Negreanu’s 1st Annual Big Swing Benefiting The Lili Claire Foundation
 

Professional poker player Daniel Negreanu announced today his first annual “Big Swing,” a charity golf event to be held at Rio Secco Golf Club on June 25th, 2009. Benefitting the Lili Claire Foundation, the event will feature 30 amateur teams, each playing golf with one professional poker player.

The event will feature a pre-golf Pairing’s Party, where each registered team will enjoy brunch and a live drawing that will pair them with a celebrity poker professional. During golf, each player will participate in a “Closest To The Pin” competition with Daniel Negreanu on the Par Three, Seventh Hole at Rio Secco.

“I love golf, I love poker and I love the Lili Claire Foundation. This event is a true passion of mine and I personally guarantee that everyone who participates will have a great time at a first-class event,” said Daniel, “One-Hundred Percent of the money we raise will go to the charity, everyone is really stepping up. We have so many ideas to make the event fun and raise money for a great children’s charity located here in Las Vegas.”

 

Keith and Leslie Litt Resnick created The Lili Claire Foundation in 1998 to honor the memory of their daughter Lili Claire. Lili was born with a neurogenetic birth condition known as Williams Syndrome, and passed away when she was just five-and-a-half months old following an 18-hour open-heart surgery to correct a problem associated with the condition. The Resnick’s created The Lili Claire Foundation to help enhance the lives of children born with specials needs, while offering hope and support to the families who love them.
