The Shriners have long been known for their dedication to charitable causes, and no cause rises higher in profile and good deeds done the Shriners Hospitals for Children, who have provided free medical treatment for children for nearly a century.

So it is of little surprise that they are teaming up with modern icon Justin Timberlake, a man well known for both his sense of humor, outgoing personality and dedication to charitable causes.

A week of fun, golf, parties all dedicated to helping The Shriners Hospitals For Children, often dubbed the World’s Greatest Charity.
