More than 65 golfers hit the links at the beautiful Del Mar Country Club on May 10 to participate in the 2nd annual Salk Institute Golf Tournament.

The teams, made up of corporate sponsors, foundation representatives and loyal Salk supporters, enjoyed a lively day of golf and raised over $64,000 at the fundraiser to support the Institute's basic biological research. After the last round was completed, the players enjoyed a delicious dinner and raffle.

"This tournament gives the local golfing community a great opportunity to play on the beautiful greens at the Del Mar County Club while contributing their support to further the transformative scientific discoveries of this world-renowned institute," explains Seth Schechter, Salk's senior director of foundation relations, who launched the golf tournament last year.
