Our cornerstone is the Gene Michael Celebrity Charity Golf Classic, which is held every year in August at the Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park, New Jersey.
Named for New York Yankee legend Gene “Stick” Michael, one of the Foundation’s biggest supporters, the event began over twenty years ago as the Phil “Scooter” Rizzuto Golf Classic.
When Mr. Rizzuto passed away in 2007, Gene Michael took the baton and has been at the forefront ever since.
Corporate sponsors of the Foundation and the tournament have included Ernst & Young, Keebler, Kelloggs, Dooney & Bourke and Coca-Cola.
Thanks to Scooter and Stick, celebrity guests and supporters over the years have included Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Steven Spielberg, Whitey Ford, Bob Hope, Tom Brokaw, Gary Carter, Chris “Mad Dog” Russo, Keith Hernandez, Darryl Strawberry, Robert Klein, Bob Feller, Jerry Orbach, Buck Showalter, Dick Vitale, Billy Crystal, MeatLoaf, Mick Foley, Gerry Cooney, Tom Hanks, Don Shula, and more.
