Knights in Gray – The Jarod Knight Golf Classic 2022

Linda Danis and Jarod Knight

Manhattan Beach, California – August 15, 2022 – In 2018, Jarod Knight, son of Strand Hill real estate agent, Linda Danis, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent surgery in Los Angeles to remove the tumor.

After multiple surgeries, brain radiation, chemotherapy, MRIs, countless medications, and many sleepless nights, Jarod is currently doing great with stable MRI scans. He attributes his healing to the amazing work of Dr. Liau and Dr. Cloughesy at UCLA Brain Tumor Center. Their skilled work, compassion, and ability is something he is so grateful for to this day.

Jarod and the Uncle Kory Foundation, a 501(c)3 foundation dedicated to funding brain cancer research, worked together to put on the first annual Knights in Gray Golf Classic to support the important research of Dr. Liau and Dr. Cloughesy.

The first annual event happened on May 10, 2022, raising over $160,000 as the inaugural tournament. Strand Hill was proud to contribute as a tee box sponsor.

The event will continue with the 2nd Annual Knights in Gray, The Jarod Knight Golf Classic on May 9, 2023 also at Moorpark Country Club. To join as a sponsor, golfer or donor, click here or inquire with Linda Danis directly at 310-994-3690.
