Chris Wilcox's Charity Golf Tournament

Chris Wilcox (2000-02) (still playing for the Detroit Pistons) hosted a charity golf tournament in South Carolina last weekend. The tournament in Myrtle Beach, now in its second year, raises money for Lupus research.
For Wilcox, the search to find a cure for Lupus is a personal one—he lost two of his aunts after their respective battles with Lupus and his sister currently suffers from it, according to the release.

“Right now there is no cure, or known cause for Lupus and 90 percent of those affected are women,” Wilcox said through the release.

“After losing my aunts and seeing how my sister is affected by it, finding a cure for Lupus has become a personal crusade for me. I hope the Myrtle Beach community will come out to support this event and have some fun for a good cause,” Wilcox said through the release.
