Lakers Forward Matt Barnes will be hosting the Athletes vs. Cancer 3rd Annual Golf Classic this Friday, Aug. 12th at the Trump National Golf Course on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.  Spectator tickets are available for purchase, and proceeds go to help a great cause!

Barnes started Athletes vs. Cancer in memory of his mother, Ann Barnes, who passed away 26 days after being diagnosed with several types of cancer. Ann’s passing was abrupt and devastating to her friends and family. In 2008, Matt launched AVC to the world to get athletes more involved in joining together to educate, bring awareness and motivate people to get regular cancer screenings.

Our own David Brickley, Jason Riley and Kam Pashai will be there covering the event, and we hope you’ll come out to see Matt, Lamar Odom, Derek Fisher and a whole list of athletes and celebrities for what is sure to be a great event!
