Guests had the opportunity to get autographs from the Truex brothers and were entertained with food, live music, silent auction items and raffle prizes.

The following day 128 golfers took to the greens for the 5th Annual Martin Truex Jr. Foundation Golf Tournament at the beautiful 18-hole championship Sea Oaks Golf Course in Little Egg Harbor, NJ. The evening culminated with the 19th Hole Dinner Celebration presented by Sea Watch International. The dinner, which hosted more than 200 guests, included gourmet dining, comedian Andy Pitz from HBO and the Jay Leno Show, and a live and silent auction. The live auction featured some incredible items including a 2013 Tracker Bass Boat donated by Jonny Morris from Bass Pro Shops, guitars autographed by Blake Shelton and the Eagles, and a 2013 U.S. Open VIP golf package.

In a tribute to recognizing others that are making a difference in the lives of children, the foundation honored David Caldarella as this year’s Humanitarian of the Year.
