The tournament honors Clausen, who passed away from a heart attack in August 2014. All proceeds go to Clint's four daughter's 529 college funds and subsidized healthy heart screenings offered by Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance and the American Heart Association.
Over the past two years, tournament participation "exceeded our wildest dreams," with more than 200 attendees, according to Clausen's wife Kori Clausen. The tournament offers two divisions; a competitive division, which includes players from the AVP, USC, and UCLA athletes; as well as a fun division.
Sign up for the tournament at www.4DKFours.com. The cost is $160 for a team of four.
Also at the tournament will be silent auction items including tickets to Dr. Phil, Spyder products, Baja Sharkeez gift certificates, a session with a personal trainer, a Le Petit Cirque lesson, LACMA tickets, USC tickets, Haute Yogi meditation, hair products, Bionic Mommy, Tenacity Tennis Lessons with Josh Oswald, Fit On spin classes, Fresh Brothers, a Fresh Produce gift certificate, paddle board lessons, baby care products, Svelte for Men, Grand Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, Shade Hotel, a wine tasting and consultation for a group of friends, a Simms gift card, a Sausal gift certificate for four, Kendra Scott Jewelry, and more.
According to Kori Clausen, when Clint died of a massive heart attack, "We had no idea he had heart disease. Since his passing, we have become huge advocates in raising healthy heart awareness. In partnering with Providence Little Company of Mary and the American Heart Association, we now promote their amazing healthy heart screenings. Not only are we raising awareness of these comprehensive and informative screenings, but half of the proceeds go to subsidizing heart screenings for the less privileged throughout the South Bay community."
Last year's event raised $11,000 to donate 44 screenings.
Those who are not able to play may also donate to the Clausen Angels Fund. For every dollar donated, 50 cents will go towards the girls' 529 college fund and 50 cents will be donated to Providence Little Company to promote and make available healthy heart screenings.
