Celebrity Golf Classic
The Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Celebrity Golf Classic is set for May 19-20, 2019 at the world-famous TPC Sawgrass. Dozens of sports and entertainment stars will gather with Coach Coughlin to support families tackling childhood cancer.
This year the annual Celebrity Golf Classic will celebrate 24 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 sponsorship only event kicks off on Sunday evening with the one-of-a-kind celebrity dinner and auction. It 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, we tee it up with each foursome being matched with a celebrity participant for a special round of golf on THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. We are honored by the continued participation of our sponsors, many coming back every year for the last 24 years!
