From Gridiron to Greens...
It was the day that CaddyShack collided with The Longest Yard. It was the day that golf competition was played with a fierce gridiron mentality. It was a day of good-natured fun as NFL players, stripped of shoulder pads, helmets, any type of protective gear, battled the pristine greens of Heron Bay Golf Club ---- all in the name of friendship and charity.
Instead of a pigskin, these over-sized men tossed jokes and wisecracks, as they cheered and teased each other’s play with the same spirit and heart they displayed on the football field. The occasion was the Keith Sims Celebrity Golf Invitational; a two-day event benefiting the Alzheimer’s Family Center in Margate. Sims, who played eleven seasons with the Miami Dolphins, called on dozens of his former NFL buddies enlisting their participation and support in his fundraiser.
And respond they did!! In addition to an impressive “who’s who” list of the NFL’s finest, Keith also sought support from other champions in the world of sports. Celebrities teeing off for charity included: Channing Crowder, Mark Duper, Nat Moore, John Offerdahl, Jim “Crash” Jensen, Sean Hill, James Pruitt, Dwayne White, Bobby Harden, Troy Drayton, Reggie Givens, Eric Roberson, Bob & Nick Kuechenberg, Darrell Malone, Kerry Glenn, John Bock, Jed Weaver, Keith Byars, Michael Williams, Cornelius Bennett, Dexter Manley, Twain Russell, Tom Sorenson, Terry Kirby, Jeff Cross plus USA Figure Skating Champion, Todd Eldredge and Jai Ali star, Joey C.
Every entry fee into the event included a VIP Party at Gatsby’s Boca on Friday evening. Players and celebrities mingled, played pool, enjoyed food and beverages, and participated in both silent and live auctions. The live auction was smoothly handled by Dr. T. of Hot 105.5 FM radio and Christopher White Group Real Estate sponsored the Gatsby’s Party. Saturday’s golf outing offered more fun, camaraderie blended with spirited competition, tons and tons of food along with open bars, followed by an awards banquet luncheon. Major sponsors were Vitas Hospice, Republic Distributing, Life Publications, Christopher White Group, BankAtlantic, Publix Supermarkets, The Miami Dolphins, Dania Management, All Service Refuse, Brookdale Senior Living and M & R Drywall/Selbach Construction.
Sims plays in lots of charity fundraisers throughout the year, but he lends his name and heart to the Alzheimer’s Family Center. He has observed first-hand the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease; he has selected this Center as the recipient of his efforts because he believes strongly in the organization’s mission, shares their vision and is committed to the cause.
If you would like information on the Center’s services or to volunteer, call the Alzheimer’s Family Center at 954 971-7155
