With Tournament Full, Hundreds Expected For Auction, Lofton Excited For Charity Event This Weekend
After months of preparation, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Justin Lofton's inaugural charity golf tournament is now just days away. On Saturday, a capacity 108 golfers will hit the links at the Del Rio Country Club in his native Brawley, California. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Imperial Valley.
"I cannot wait until this weekend. This has been in the works for months. It's really been exciting to see it all come together," Lofton said.
Following the golf tournament, the event will move to the Stockmen's Club where an awards ceremony, check presentation, dinner, and auction will take place. Over 300 people are expected at the Stockmen's Club, including fellow Truck Series competitors Matt Crafton and new teammate at Germain Racing, Champion Todd Bodine, who will join Lofton in the day's activities.
Following the dinner and auction, country singer Tim Dugger will provide live entertainment.
"The day is going to be a lot of fun - from the tournament to the auction, to the concert. We wanted to put on a good show in order to draw in as many people as possible. The more people we can get to attend, the more we will be able to donate to the Boys and Girls Clubs. That is what this is all about, helping these kids," Lofton added.
A full event schedule, ticket information, and registration forms are available on LoftonRacing.com. Additional information can also be found on the "Justin Lofton's Charity Golf Tournament" Facebook page.
