You are cordially invited to join the National Kidney Foundation for a day of camaraderie and friendly competition, all to benefit a great cause! Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in style at the 2nd Annual Doc Walker ProView Celebrity Golf Classic!
Tournament host, Rick "Doc" Walker, former Super Bowl champion and co-host of "Inside the Locker Room" on ESPN 980, is pleased to welcome several Redskins players who are scheduled to participate in the spring event. They include Reed Doughty, DeAngelo Hall, Ryan Kerrigan, Kory Lichtensteiger, Will Montgomery, Tyler Polumbus, and Evan Royster. Redskins alums scheduled to attend include Brian Carpenter, Ricky Ervins, Brig Owens, and Walker's radio co-host Brian Mitchell.
Golfers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate in the event for the exciting competition and the chance to win great prizes. The Greenbrier, America's Resort, will be sponsoring a par three contest with the opportunity to win a weekend at the famed West Virginia resort. Many other contests and prizes will be announced in coming months.
In its initial year, the Doc Walker tournament attracted a dozen celebrities and 100 golfers, and raised $60,000 for the National Kidney Foundation. This year's goal is to raise more than $100,000 to support the Foundation's programs in research, public education, early detection programs, patient services, and organ donation awareness. With the waiting list for organs exceeding 120,000 names, the National Kidney Foundation is designing and implementing innovative programs to increase organ donation - both living and deceased - to drastically reduce the waiting list.
The tournament committee is comprised of leaders from the local business community dedicated to helping the cause. Corporate co-chairs of the event are Dave Boyer of BRG Group and Mike Byrd of ProView. Yasmine Bonilla of Ameriprise Financial is the event chair. Committee members include Dominique Dupras of the Greenbrier Resort, Clay Goldsborough of First Financial Group, DeeDee Dalton of d2pr, Curtis Jennings of Verizon/Terremark, Dawnn Johnson of Aflac, Amy O'Brien of HiBall Events, Dawn Peters of Naked Health, Dan Schumack of Schumack Ryals, and David West of Bank of America.
Tournament sponsorships range from $500 - $15,000. The fee for an individual golfer is $375 or $1,500 per foursome. To register, please contact Alexandra Schofield at (202) 244-7900 ext. 13.
