Bruce Jenner to Highlight Charity Golf Event to Benefit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
Bruce Jenner, Olympic decathlon winner, entrepreneur, sportscaster and humanitarian, will participate in the USS Foundation’s 5th annual golf event to benefit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) on June 11 at the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, CA.
As in past years, the charitable fundraising event is being held in conjunction with the National Retail Federation (NRF) Loss Prevention Conference in San Diego, CA, June 12-14.
“NCMEC is the premier organization serving some of the most vulnerable members of our society– missing and exploited children,” said Adel Sayegh, founder and president of the USS Foundation. “Thanks to NCMEC’s incredible efforts, over 183,000 lost children have been recovered since its inception in 1984, and we are proud to work with the loss prevention community to support its critical mission. This year, we are pleased to welcome such an accomplished athlete and humanitarian like Bruce Jenner to participate in our annual fundraising event.”
The USS Foundation is a charitable, non-profit organization dedicated to helping poor and less fortunate children have the tools, skills and knowledge to build a better life with a hope for a brighter tomorrow. The USS Foundation works both locally and nationally through their support programs that help community food banks, hospitals and homeless shelters and through their Adopt-A-Bike program that has donated over 1,000 bicycles to needy children across the country.
Since its inception in 1984, NCMEC has been at the forefront of the fight to keep children safer from abduction and sexual exploitation through resource assistance to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, bring perpetrators to justice and prevent devastating crimes against children.
