Alonzo Mourning’s Popular Golfing Experience to Benefit Children at Risk
 
WESTCHESTER, NY (August 5th, 2008) — Get your golf clubs ready and practice your best swing!  NBA champion Alonzo Mourning alongside his closest friends from the sports, entertainment, political and business world will host the 5th Annual Zo’s Million Dollar Shootout at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester, New York on Monday, August 18th, 2008.  To date, not one golfer in town has been able to claim the one million dollars – is this your lucky year?
 
Zo’s Million Dollar Shootout has been a staple golf outing along the northeast corridor for the past four years, where tons of golfers not only come out to test their swing for the chance at one million dollars but also to support Alonzo Mourning Charities’ community initiatives.  The foundation empowers and educates today’s youth through various educational programs and works to stimulate the development of youth enrichment centers that assists at-risk children in low socioeconomic communities. 
 
“We know there’s a million dollar shooter out there waiting to show off his or her skills so we encourage you to leave your business suits behind for the day and join us on the greens,” said Alonzo Mourning, Founder of Alonzo Mourning Charities.  “Your support helps positively impact the youth we serve who might not have a chance to advance without our assistance.  With increased financial resources, we’re able to change the lives of so many deserving children through education and mentoring.”
 
Mourning, who has personal ties to the New Jersey area where he lived for several years, is partnering with City of Newark’s Mayor Cory Booker, who will be at the event, to designate a portion of proceeds from Zo’s Million Dollar Shootout to support and fund a local charity project that will be announced soon.  Mourning and Mayor Booker share the same vision for the young people of their communities and recognize the importance of collaborating efforts in order to truly make a difference in the lives of children who need it the most.   
 
Donald Trump and the Trump National Golf Club hosts Zo’s Million Dollar Shootout each year.  The golf course is among the most highly regarded in the area boasting world-class facilities and a 7,291-yard par 72 golf course designed by golf course architect Jim Fazio.  Located in the heart of Westchester County, Trump National Golf Club is just 30 minutes from Manhattan and under an hour from Newark.
 
Participants in the tournament will not only shoot it out for the chance to win one million dollars, but will also enjoy a complimentary gift bag with top-of-the-line golf gear, welcome breakfast reception, putting contest, round of golf, post-reception feast featuring culinary delights, awards ceremony, and a live auction with exclusive items and experiences up for bid.  Register for a foursome and/or receive additional information by20visiting www.ZoShootOut.com or calling 305/476-0095.
