On Monday, May 7, 2018, Hakkasan Group hosted its Second Annual Charity Golf Invitational at the Spanish Trails Golf Course. As a part of the renowned hospitality group’s Hakkasan Gives Back initiatives, the company partnered with the Keep Memory Alive Organization supporting the mission of Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and raised over $90,000 for the local organization between sponsor donations, tournament entries, and silent auction items (Pictured: Joe Haro, Kevin McCracken, Larry Ruvo and Rich Kenny – Photo credit: Joe Janet).
