This year the annual Celebrity Golf Classic will celebrate 22 years. This signature event became the foundation on which the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund was built. When this annual tradition began in 1996 it was to celebrate the life of Jay McGillis, raise funds for local families tackling childhood cancer, and have a good time. That first tournament raised $51,600. Last year’s tournament raised over half a million dollars. We never imagined we would grow to where we are today, impacting the lives of thousands of local families tackling childhood cancer.
The exclusive invitation only event kicks off on Sunday evening with dinner and online silent auction. The auction is open a few days ahead of time for online bidding and closes around 9:15 Sunday evening. The dinner includes the opportunity to honor local families tackling cancer, introduce the annual Tom Coughlin Jay Fund scholarship recipients, meet celebrities, and enjoy a special message from Coach Coughlin.
On Monday morning, the tournament is off to a shotgun start at 8:30 am, each foursome being matched with a celebrity participant. By 1:30 everyone is off the course and enjoys a special awards ceremony luncheon. We are honored by the continued participation of our sponsors, many coming back every year for the last 22 years!
