The Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation has received more than $120,000 in proceeds from the 2012 One Ball Matt Memorial Golf Tournament in Dong Guan City, China, for lung-cancer research under the direction of Dr. Edward Garon. This annual event, held in memory of Callaway Golf employee Matt Christiansen, has raised nearly $275,000 since 2010 to advance Dr. Garon’s efforts at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The eighth annual No-Limit Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament, benefiting Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA, was held at Fox Studios on March 30, 2013, marking the final chapter of this popular event. Since 2006, it has been hosted by Hospital Board Cochair J.R. DeLang, whose leadership has resulted in a cumulative $1.35 million raised. Participants enjoyed a day of card-playing, NCAA basketball viewing and bidding on silent-auction items, as well as the opportunity to hear firsthand from a patient family about the difference philanthropy makes.
