The Willis McGahee Charity Golf Classic is set for Monday, June 27, on the Blue Monster golf course at the Doral Resort and Spa, 4400 N. W. 87th Avenue, beginning with a 7 a.m. registration and breakfast.
It’s the first year of what the former University of Miami running back, currently starring with the NFL Ravens, plans as an annual event. The tournament will raise funds for many worthy projects of the Willis McGahee Foundation, aiding underprivileged children by providing tools and encouragement to become self-sufficient young people.
Various celebrities and athletes joining the festivities will include Ed Reed and Derrick Mason, Ravens team members; Phillip Buchannan, Washington Redskins; Antwan Barnes, San Diego Chargers.
McGahee will join golfers who begin a shot-gun tee-off at 8:30 a.m., timed to finish for the luncheon reception and awards at 1:30 p.m.
Registration cost is $2,000 per team ($500 per player) that includes breakfast, beverages, awards luncheon, tee-gifts, prizes, a photo with McGahee, and golfing with the host on the ninth hole. Sponsorship packages are available, ranging from $500 to $8,000. For more details, contact Jennifer Commer at 310-597-1814 or by email at Jennifer@jsypr.com
