LPGA Golf Pro Diana D'Alessio and Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Present "Tasting on the Green" to Benefit Cord for Life Foundation

Fundraising Event to Help Raise Awareness of the Potential Life-Saving Benefits of Umbilical Cord Blood and Funds for Education Programs Offered by Cord for Life Foundation

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 09/26/12 -- On September 29, 2012, LPGA golfer Diana D'Alessio will join Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar to host the "Tasting on the Green" fundraiser to benefit the Cord For Life Foundation. Held at Fleming's in Dr. Phillips, the event will feature a custom menu offering a diverse selection of appetizers and wine pairings, and guests will have the unique opportunity to challenge D'Alessio in putting green activities. A silent and live auction will be held on-site, as well. "Tasting on the Green" will begin at 7p.m. and ticket availability is limited. Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased at www.cordforlifefoundation.org.

The event will help raise awareness of the potential life-saving benefits of umbilical cord blood and also fundraise for educational programs offered by the Cord for Life Foundation.

"I'm proud to be a part of the 'Tasting on the Green' event and to support a cause that is important to me," said D'Alessio. "I hope that through this event we help people understand the value of stem cells and the importance of donating cord blood when giving birth."

Each year, thousands of people are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases, such as leukemia and other disorders that can be treated with the stem cells extracted from the blood in the umbilical cord of newborns. As with bone marrow transplants, doctors can match cord blood to a patient and then transplant it to potentially save a life. If not suitable for patient use, donated cord blood may be used for medical research. Unfortunately, the umbilical cord is often discarded unless expectant mothers choose to donate the cord blood to a public cord blood bank or store the units with a private bank.

Tasting on the Green
Guests will enjoy delicious food and exceptional wines. The menu will include nine appetizers, and wine pairings handpicked to complement each menu item. Sample menu items include shrimp cocktail paired with Moet & Chandon Champagne and New Zealand Petite Lamb Chops paired with Morse Code Shiraz.

Sponsored by Jaguar Orlando, the "Putt for a Cause" activity will allow guests to challenge D'Alessio, Lorie Kane, Pernilla Lindberg and soccer player James O'Connor in a putting contest on an 18 x 23 foot putting green provided by Tour Links.

"We support many local organizations that are dedicated to making a difference in people's lives and improving their health, and we are pleased to sponsor this fundraising event which will help Cord for Life Foundation carry out their important mission," said Peter Wilson, President at Jaguar Orlando.

"We are proud to partner with Diana D'Alessio, Fleming's and the Cord for Life Foundation to offer a unique activity at 'Tasting on the Green,'" said Dave Barlow, president of Tour Links and UltraBase Systems™ Worldwide. "Guests will have fun testing our modular putting green and our patented UltraBase Systems. We offer a precision molded, engineered interlocking panel base structure that gives synthetic turf the feel of a natural grass field while providing strength and performance."

"Tasting on the Green" will be held at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar - Dr. Phillips, 8030 Via Dellagio Way, Orlando.
