Chris Taylor Foundation hosts Driving For Hope events in Virginia Beach and El Segundo

Chris Taylor and his fiancee Mary Keller are hosting a second annual Driving For Hope charity tournament at TopGolf Virginia Beach on Monday, with another event taking place in El Segundo next year.

Tickets for a regular bay and VIP option are currently available. Both bay options are good for six players and include food and drink for participants.

A spectator ticket is also available, and participants can add a competition ticket to take a golf swing against Taylor.

Fans who are unable to attend the Virginia Beach event are still invited to attend the auction and watch a live stream of Taylor on Instagram. An online auction is also open to everyone.

The CT3 Foundation hosted a golf tournament last year and proceeds will again benefit the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters and the Roc Solid Foundation to support the fight against childhood cancer. In 2021, Taylor organized Home Run for Hope, a virtual event aimed at raising awareness of childhood cancer.

In more than 50 years, the King’s Daughters Children’s Hospital has grown into a 206-bed teaching hospital that plays a key role in the pediatric healthcare system.

The Roc Solid Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that brings hope to children fighting cancer. Founded by childhood cancer survivor Eric Newman, the organization is best known for providing families with Ready Bags when their child is first diagnosed and giving children play sets to use in the garden during treatment.

The Roc Solid Foundation, also based in Virginia, is expanding both programs nationwide in hopes of benefiting every child with cancer in the United States.

Why Chris Taylor started the CT3 Foundation

After several childhood friends were diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, Taylor established the CT3 Foundation to raise money for children battling the disease and to improve the lives of all affected.

“It’s something I’m passionate about,” he said ahead of last year’s event. “One of my childhood friends who I grew up with – Kyle Profilet – lost his battle with osteosarcoma. I think cancer is something that affects everyone in some way.

“If it’s not sarcoma, then it has some form of cancer. I just found it important to use my platform.”
