The Schillings of Rancho Santa Fe are rallying for Type 1 diabetes awareness, research and an eventual cure after a life-changing diagnosis rocked their family two years ago.
In 2012, Christian and Sue Schilling’s son, Christopher, was diagnosed at age 7. They did not sit idle long, educating themselves and immediately starting Christopher’s Foundation to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation San Diego and find a cure for juvenile diabetes.
To help raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Christopher’s Foundation is holding Tee’d Off for a Cure Invitational Golf Tournament on Monday, Sept. 15, at Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe. A $250 entry fee includes golf with a cart, range balls, live and silent auctions, a raffle and dinner. All players also receive a free swing analysis and a Peter Grimm hat.
A pre-tournament wine event, Uncorked, was held at Sublime Tavern on Aug. 27 (photos from the event are shown on this page). Rancho Santa Fe resident-owned wineries Two Plank and Gen 7 were at the event, as well as Fallbrook Winery and Rip Current Brewery. Sublime served up a craft beer and wine pairing dinner.
