BALTIMORE, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite economic woes, restaurateur Steve de Castro, along with noted Baltimore-area sports figures, have raised $311K to find a cure for blood-related cancers at the Ruth's Chris Steak House Sizzling Celebrity Golf Classic. Funds raised benefit the Maryland Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org).

-- Brent Harris (Comcast Sportsnet)

-- Scott Garceau (ABC, WMAR-TV)

The event continued into the evening with an after-party at downtown Baltimore's hottest upscale nightclub, Havana Club. De Castro and ESPN radio host Anita Marks co-emceed the post-party as more than 200 guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, dinner, open bar, and live sports and entertainment auctions. Items auctioned included: a nine-day trip to Australia with tours and wine tastings; a signed and framed jersey of NFL legend, Brett Favre; a trip for two to the 2009 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles; and a 3.07kt diamond bracelet.

The night concluded with the announcement of golf classic winners: First place went to The Hess Collection Winery; second place went to Skyy Vodka; and third place went to 1st Financial Resources.
