The Who, What, Where, When, Why

The Jim Brown Celebrity Golf Tournament will take place October 7-9, 2011 at La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa, a four-star Texas resort located less than an hour north of downtown Houston.

The event will kick off Friday at Chez Roux with a private cocktail and dinner reception. At the dinner reception, event managers from TMG Entertainment will announce which celebrity will join each foursome on the green that weekend. Confirmed celebrities include legends like George Foreman and Bill Russell.

Saturday, teams hit the links for their first day of play on the challenging 18-hole golf course at La Torretta. A total of 20 celebrities and their teams will tee-off to begin a scramble type tournament and let the friendly competition begin.

Later that evening a gala complete with exquisite dining and entertainment will be held in celebration of the tournament and the Amer-I-Can Foundation. The gala will take place in one of the gorgeous ballrooms in the La Torretta 73,000 square-foot conference center. Tickets are available for $150 per person.
