Albert Pujols and his wife Diedre held their second annual Celebrity Golf Classic today at the Missouri Bluffs Golf Club. The Pujols Foundation was set up by St. Louis Cardinal First Baseman, and arguably (not) the best player in baseball today, Albert Pujols and his wife Diedre in May of this year.

The Pujols Foundation intends to assist at least three charities the year, with Down Syndrome Research being a priority. Albert and Diedre’s daughter Isabella, was born with the condition.

Tonight during the trophy ceremony and silent auction, a representative from the Down Syndrome Association gave a moving account of her accomplishments and ended by having all of the Down Syndrome children join her on the stage to recognize Albert and Diedre for the work they do for the St. Louis Down Syndrome Association.
