Pujols to hold 11th annual golf classic on Monday

ANAHEIM -- Albert and Deidre Pujols will host the 11th annual Albert Pujols Celebrity Golf Classic on Monday at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes.

The Classic -- which is presented by Vons, Apollo Jets and Oh Yeah -- is an 18-hole shotgun-style event followed by a cocktail hour and dinner. There will be a live auction during the dinner and awards ceremony. There will also be a silent auction ongoing throughout the day that will close prior to the dinner.

Proceeds will benefit the Pujols Family Foundation, which provides unique programs and services to those living with Down syndrome.

The foundation also offers relief to the impoverished people of the Dominican Republic.

ESPN anchor Steve Levy will be the Master of Ceremonies, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Roger Clemens and several Angels players are expected to attend.
