The 16th Annual Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic in partnership with THE PLAYERS will take place on May 22nd and 23rd, 2011. One of the First Coast’s premier golf fundraising events, the Celebrity Golf Classic brings Tom Coughlin and his celebrity friends to Jacksonville like no other.
“We plan to create a team that will aid children who need it most” describes Coach Coughlin. “Since its inception the Jay Fund has provided well over $3 million dollars to ease the financial and emotional struggles of families who have a child with cancer.”
Hosted by Coughlin at renowned TPC Sawgrass, philanthropic minded corporate and prominent citizens will come together to enjoy a fabulous dinner and auction on Sunday evening, May 22nd, followed by a golf tournament on Monday morning May 23rd. Each foursome in the tournament is paired with one of the scores of celebrities, from the sports world and beyond, for the round. The affair is presented by Acosta Sales and Marketing, Southern Wine & Spirits and Wolfson Children’s Hospital.
The Celebrity Golf Classic is an essential source of revenue for the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund’s grant making. The generosity of participants will have an immediate, positive and powerful effect by helping children with cancer as they need support now more than ever. Demands for the Jay Fund real and immediate support the Jay Fund provides have increased dramatically in the past few years. Over $500,000 in grants was distributed in 2010 alone.
Although the Celebrity Golf Classic is not open to the public, the media will have the opportunity to conduct interviews and take photos and videos. Contact the Jay Fund to make arrangements.
