Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott partook in the First Annual Charity Dinner and Golf Tournament, Drive to Survive, held Sunday Apr. 10—charity celebrity dinner and Monday Apr. 11—charity celebrity golf tournament at Castaway restaurant and the Oakmont Country Club.
The Drive to Survive was a two-day fundraiser that is geared to raise money for Eric’s Vision— a nonprofit organization, which was started in memory of Eric Scoggins who passed away from ALS. Scoggins was a professional football player for the San Francisco 49ers and a long-time teammate of Ronnie Lott.
Eric’s Vision not only helps raise support for individuals battling ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), but it also funds ALS cure-driven research, and inspires further research by providing college scholarships to deserving high school students.
Eric’s Vision supports the world’s foremost research institute, ALSTDI, who are working to find a cure for ALS. ALSTDI is a non-profit biotech company developing effective treatments to stop ALS. Their goal is to discover viable treatments for ALS as quickly as possible.
All in all, the event was a great success as the celebrity guest list included: Ronnie Lott (4 time Super Bowl Champion with the 49ers), Eric Wright, Keena Turner, Charles Haley, Fred Belitnikoff, Kenny “The Snake” Stabler, Guy Mcyntire, Dwight Hicks, Michael Cooper, Eric Davis, Junior Bryant, Derrick Deese, Rod Martin, Gary Plummer, Vida Blue, Lloyd Moseby, Eddie Murray, Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, Ken Norton Sr., Tony “The Tiger” Lopez, and James Denton.
