The Toby Wells Foundation, a San Diego-based charity focused on helping under-served children, the disabled and orphaned animals, hosted its 11th Annual Toby Wells Golf Classic over the weekend at the prestigious Maderas Golf Club. The Free Agent / Rockstar team donated a bike to the live auction and it was presented by World Champion, Stephen Larralde. The event raised more than $150K, which will undoubtedly brighten the smiles of those less fortunate in San Diego in the months to come.
