The 2017 2LiveBeyond Celebrity Golf Tournament will take place on June 3rd at the Grande Dunes Members Club. Actor Alfonso Ribeiro is the celebrity host, and athletes including former NBA player Tyler Hansbrough and former NFL players Mark Rypien, Bernard Pollard and Tyler Thigpen are among the expected participants for the tournament.
While the tournament takes place on June 3rd, there will be six affiliated events over four days from June 1-4. If you are interested in playing in the tournament, spots are still available starting at $5,000 per foursome, as well as a corporate foursome. Tickets are available for the other events June 1-3, and several former NFL players will be instructors at a football fundamentals camp on June 4 for the kids.
The events will benefit four local charities as well as Africa New Life Ministries, which assists underprivileged children in Africa. The charities are:
▪ SOS Healthcare for a 2LiveBeyond transitional living and training facility.
▪ Grand Strand Miracle League to expand its All-Star Park with Infinity and Beyond play space
▪ Tara Hall school and home for boys for a new van and the funding of the family services program for 12 months.
▪ Teach My People for a summer enrichment program for 20 campers.
Over the past three years, the tournament and affiliated events have raised more than $350,000. They hope to raise even more money this year, as they have many new sponsors for the 2017 tournament.
