LATEST UP TO DATE NEWS! Fredrik Jacobson is gunning for the lead on a sunny Friday afternoon at the Riviera.  Don’t miss the return of THE NORTHERN TRUST OPEN with the best professional golfers in the world. Names like Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples, Steve Stricker, Luke Donald, Bubba Watson and KJ Choi will battle it out to see who brings home the trophy and puts their name in the books alongside the greatest players who ever played the game.

The Northern Trust Open is among the most respected golf tournaments on the PGA TOUR. Held at historic Riviera Country Club, nestled amid the rolling hills of the Pacific Palisades just outside Los Angeles, the Northern Trust Open presents golfers with one of the game’s most challenging courses. The wind, the bunkers, the elevations, the trees. To succeed here, you need to use every club in your bag and every shot in your game.

The Mulligan Project, a non-profit improving the lives of children with disabilities in Central Vietnam, is selling great tickets. ALL proceeds go to charity! Ask about VIP tickets that will get you access to the exclusive Riviera Club House – great golf and maybe even a few celebrity sightings.

Contact kelly@themulliganproject.org for tickets.

Our non-profit began three years ago as a partnership with The Kianh Foundation providing special education, physical therapy and healthcare services to children with disabilities at a government-run orphanage in Hoi An, Vietnam. We ran successful programs there until 2010. We are now serving the greater community.

On April 11, 2012, The Mulligan Project joyfully celebrated the Opening Ceremony of the The Dien Ban Day Center, a full-service special education facility that not only provides programs to children with disabilities but also benefits their families.

Most of the children at The Dien Ban Day Center suffer from Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy. One in ten children in Dien Ban are born with Down Syndrome. Dien Ban has over 1,000 children with disability, the majority of whom have no access to basic education. We are changing that.

The Dien Ban Day Center is the first of its kind in the region and addresses a critical gap.  Many of the children at the Center have either never been in school or were rejected after failing their first year. If a child cannot succeed in the government school in Dien Ban, his or her choices become almost non-existent. The Mulligan Project offers children with disabilities a tailored program where they can maximize their mental and physical potential. With our programs, the children are thriving. They matter. Children have learned to walk. Children have learned to read. These are major milestones they could not reach before The Dien Ban Day Center. We also work directly with the parents and offer them training regarding their special needs child.
