On Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5-6, Morgan Run Club & Resort will host its 12th annual Charity Classic. Since its inception in 2007, the Charity Classic has raised more than $36 million for local and national philanthropic organizations. This year’s outstanding beneficiaries include two perennial favorites and a local charity of choice.
Augie’s Quest, which funds research and development aimed at ending ALS by supporting the ALS Therapy Development Institute, the world’s largest ALS-dedicated drug development organization. (www.als.net)
