Congratulations to our Foundation for another successful Shoeless Joe’s Celebrity Golf Classic on June 14th! In its 8th year, this event has now raised over $500,000 for our healthcare system. This year’s tournament raised over $80,000 for the Cherish Campaign, which is raising funds for our Women’s Health Services.
The Celebrity Golf Classic, which enjoyed a record-high fundraising year, was officially sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network and provided participants the opportunity to play with a member of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame and/or other sports celebrities at Norwoods Golf Club in Hannibal.
Among the celebrities to attend were former MU and St. Louis Cardinals football players Johnny Roland and Mel Gray; former MU and Oakland Raider player Gus Otto; and former MU football player Chase Coffman. Other sports celebrities included former St. Louis Cardinal Football players Eddie Moss, Tim Kearney, Tim Van Galder, Jerry Holloway and Eric Williams.
There was a lot of hard work put into this outing to make it such a beneficial and fun event. There were 43 teams that participated as well as the numerous celebrities in attendance. This top-notch tournament would not be possible without all the help of our fantastic team members and volunteers. Thank you for all of your assistance and dedication!
