CHARLOTTE, N.C. (July 19, 2016) – Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids’ 13th Annual Charity Weekend fundraiser, which features a golf tournament and auction, is scheduled for July 30 & August 1.

Grin Kids’ Charity Weekend starts with an auction on Saturday, July 30 at 7 p.m. at Waterford Hall in Cornelius, NC. This year’s auction features items such as a custom, personalized golf cart by Paradise Golf Carts and use of a luxurious vacation home in Sanibel, FL provided by Galway Hooker.
