Come tee off with Hollywood actors and professional athletes at the 28th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic March 8 and 9 benefiting Fresh Start Surgical Gifts.

Aaron Pollock, Charlie Joiner, Hank Bauer, Rob Heidger, Sam Scarber, Tina Mickelson, Derek Smith, and Jason Kyle, to name a few, have all signed on to help these disadvantaged kids.

The festivities begin at 5:00pm on Sunday, March 8 with a pre-tournament welcome dinner held at Morgan Run Club & Resort 5690 Cancha de Golf, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92091. The evening will include dinner, cocktails, entertainment, and a live and silent auction. The next day at 8:30am  is when the action begins where groups will be paired with a celebrity to participate in contests and sample delicious food by Casanova Tacos and Los Chuchys, and of course non-adult and adult beverages hosted by Thorn Street Brewing, Viewpoint Brewing Company, and Societe Brewing Company at every hole.
