Registration Still Open for PG
Girls BB Celebrity Golf Tourney
The final list of celebrities has been confirmed for the Professional Sports & Event Photography (PSEP) Golf Tournament scheduled for Saturday, August 25 at Jordan Point Country Club.
Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Prince George High School Girls’ Basketball Team, as well as fund a scholarship for a female athlete in Prince George County and support the Juan Stephenson Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Event organizer Billy Gray has also added another cause to hold the tournament.
“This year, I am adding another important reason to participate in this golf tournament, Gray said. “Her name is Zoe. She is 7 years old and at birth she was diagnosed with OMS (Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome), a very rare form of cancer. This year we are going to be raising money for Zoe and her family to take a trip to Walt Disney World, her dream vacation. Donations going directly to Zoe and her family are welcome and will not be put in with the funds from the golf tournament.”
