Every year, hundreds of community, social and business elite attend the Champions to CureDuchenne in Orange County, California to raise funds for Cure Duchenne in support of creating awareness and funding the most promising Duchenne research.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, April 30th at the beautiful Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, California. This memorable evening includes a cocktail reception, an incredible dinner co-created by Master Chef Massimo Navarretta of Onotria Restaurant in Costa Mesa and Chef Josef of the Balboa Bay Club, a live auction and music by Party Jones. Honorees will be Vinny Smith and Kelly Thornton Smith, with NFL Super Bowl XLV champion Clay Matthews as special guest.

Duchenne is the most common muscle disease in children. One in every 3,500 boys born worldwide will be afflicted with Duchenne. It progressively robs these boys of their ability to move and cuts their lives short, just before these young men make their mark on the world.

The charity is also currently auctioning tickets to Australia to meet Justin Bieber.

Tables for 10 are priced at $5,000. Individual tickets are priced at $500 with a limited number of non-premium seating tickets priced at $250 each.
