Los Angeles, CA (May XX, 2012) – Celebrities golfed for a good cause on Monday, May 7 to benefit The Lopez Foundation at the sold out 5th annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic & Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championship. The record-setting event, held at Lakeside Golf, welcomed 200 golfers and raised more than $500,000 to benefit the foundation.
