U.S. Olympic Committee and DISC to Celebrate 100 Day Countdown

13 Team USA Athletes and Olympic Hopefuls Slated to Attend April 18 Fundraiser


Los Angeles & Newport Beach, CA – As part of the bi-coastal celebrations marking 100 days to the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the United States Olympic Committee and DISC Sports & Spine Center will host a VIP benefit gala April 18 at DISC’s pristine new center in Newport Beach, Calif. Proceeds from the event will directly benefit the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams.

“The road to the Olympic Games requires dedication to an often grueling training schedule, and the support of family and friends,” said Robert S. Bray, Jr., M.D., DISC’s CEO and Founding Director. “As an official medical services provider for the USOC, DISC is proud to have played a part in helping many of these athletes realize their dreams. This fantastic event gives us the opportunity to help even more, while giving our local community members the opportunity to do so as well.”

Special guest Olympians will join several 2012 Olympic hopefuls from Southern California, VIPs, the press and other local community members for an evening filled with live music, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

“With the London 2012 Games just around the corner, we’re thrilled DISC is helping to raise awareness that the USOC is a non-profit organization reliant on public donations to fund Team USA,” said USOC Chief Development Officer Janine Musholt. “April 18 will also mark the unveiling of the USOC’s new marketing and development campaign, which will give all Americans the chance to become part of the team behind the team.”
