MOYER FOUNDATION’S 6th ANNUAL CELEBRITY GOLF CLASSIC FEATURES MLB AND NHL PLAYERS, OLYMPIC MEDALIST Tommy John and Joe Theismann are Among Those Confirmed to Play in Las Vegas, Nov. 2-3, 2012

PHILADELPHIA (Sept. 27, 2012) – Two of the greatest legends in sports, former Notre Dame basketball coach Digger Phelps and his son-in-law, MLB pitcher Jamie Moyer, will co-host a celebrity golf tournament in Las Vegas, Nov. 2-3, 2012, to support The Moyer Foundation’s mission and signature programs helping thousands of children in distress across the country each year.

The Moyer Foundation’s 6th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic, presented by Savers®, will also include a Toast & Roast – Celebrating Jamie Moyer’s 50th Birthday (#50 turning 50) on Friday, November 2nd at the MGM Grand. The tournament will be played at Bear’s Best Las Vegas Golf Course. Confirmed to participate in the Toast & Roast and play in foursomes with invited guests and sponsors on Saturday, Nov. 3 is former MLB pitcher Tommy John (whose namesake ligament surgery greatly benefited Jamie Moyer). Also playing are NFL legend Joe Theismann, two-time MLB All-Star Rick Rhoden, four-time MLB All-Star Bob Boone, seven-time MLB All-Star Trevor Hoffman, and actor Alfonso Ribeiro (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), among others. The tournament will be followed by an Awards Ceremony and Luncheon at Bear’s Best. All proceeds benefit The Moyer Foundation’s mission to empower children in distress by providing education and support – helping them to live healthy and inspired lives.

Founded in 2000 by Jamie and Karen Moyer, The Moyer Foundation is a public nonprofit organization with offices in Seattle and Philadelphia. In addition to community-funded grants, the Foundation created and funds Camp Erin®, the largest national network of free children’s bereavement camps including a location in nearly every Major League Baseball city as well as Camp Mariposa®, a free camp for children living with addiction in their families that is also expanding nationwide. Co-hosting the Celebrity Golf Classic is Digger Phelps, former head coach of Notre Dame (1971-1991), one of the most successful coaches in college basketball history, and currently an analyst for ESPN. Last spring, at the age of 49, Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher in the major leagues to win a game. He is married to Phelp’s daughter, Karen, with whom he has eight children.

Sponsorship packages range from $6,000 per foursome up to $100,000 for sponsorship of the Nov. 2 dinner. Individual tickets are available for the dinner and can be purchased with a hotel package at the MGM Grand on a first come, first serve basis.
