Antonio Gates & Teammates to Gather at 2012 Shoot to Cure Huntington's Disease
Presented by Qualcomm and Cymer, 11th annual event helps raise awareness and funds for Huntington’s Disease Society of America
Huntington’s disease (HD), a fatal genetic brain disorder that results in the loss of all mental and physical capabilities, affects thousands of Americans each year but many of their heroic stories go unheard. The HDSA-San Diego chapter’s Shoot to Cure HD brings the community together to help raise funds to fight the disease and support the families living with HD.
“The Shoot is one of the best parties of the summer,” said HDSA-San Diego board member Bill Johnston. “We’ve been holding this event for 11 years and each year it gets bigger and crazier and it helps us get a little closer to finding a cure. Thanks to support from Qualcomm, Cymer, the Chargers and friends like Antonio Gates, we know a cure will be found.”
Guests will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with their favorite Chargers players while enjoying great food and drinks from many of San Diego’s finest restaurants. They can also tour Chargers Park: the actual locker room, weight room and meeting rooms used by the team. The event also offers great auction opportunities and prizes, and the entertainment for the night is the crazy speed-free-throw tournament.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased on HDSA-SanDiego’
Qualcomm, Cymer, San Diego Chargers and other local businesses are partnering with HDSA-San Diego to support this year’s Shoot to Cure HD. For more information about HD, the Shoot to Cure HD and how you can help, visit www.HDSASanDiego.org or call 619-225-2255.
