Yankees Host Inaugural Charity Golf Tournament
May 11, 2011 – On Monday afternoon, the Yankees held the inaugural New York Yankees/New Era Pinstripe Bowl Charity Golf Tournament. Net proceeds from the event will benefit the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Pediatric Cancer Center, Public Schools Athletic League, Tourette Syndrome Association of Central New Jersey and the Boomer Esiason Foundation Fighting Cystic Fibrosis.
At the outing, which took place at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, New Jersey, I interviewed the University of Notre Dame’s head football coach Brian Kelly – who won the first football game at Yankee Stadium.
“The Yankees treated me so well last year,” Kelly said. “I was happy to help them in any way I could, and I am thrilled to be here.”
That interview will appear in the July issue of Yankees Magazine, but before that, there will be a photo essay on the golf outing in the June issue.
That seven page feature will comprise photos of many of the participants including Kelly, Esiason, Brian Cashman, David Cone, former New York Giants Carl Banks and Howard Cross, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan and Syracuse head football coach Doug Marrone.
