For the past few years Albert Pujols and his foundation, Pujols Family Foundation, have hosted a a Celebrity Golf Classic. The event has continued in St. Louis even after Pujols signed with the Angels. Hosting it in Pujols’ stead has been Cardinals stalwart Matt Holliday. With Holliday’s departure in free agency, there was an opportunity for someone new to get involved. Pairing up the event with Carlos Martínez’s foundation, Tsunami Waves, is a natural fit.
Thank you @tanisushibistro for taking great care of us in our meeting today. Big things happening this year with the @pujolsfound & @tsunami_waves_foundation We are working together on our celebrity golf tournament (Aug. 21) & are also doing a joing mission trip to the Dominican Republic this fall as well. It's going to be a great year!!
The specifics have not yet been announced, so be on the lookout for more details. Check out www.TsunamiWavesFoundation.org and www.PujolsFamilyFoundation.org for more information on this event and other ways to contribute!
