Harris Teeter has been one of the title sponsors for the Juvenile Diabetes Celebrity Golf Tournament since its inception in 1998. This year we are excited to announce that Coach John Fox of the Carolina Panthers is the celebrity chair. Coach Fox will also be bringing with him Carolinas own NFC Championship players to practice their swings in the name of charity.
Panthers players scheduled to attend include Jake Delhomme, Jarrod Cooper, Kris Mangum, Deitan Dubuc, James Hugo, Mike Hayes, Mike Houghton, Melvin Tuten, Eugene Baker, Rich Tylski and many more.
Twenty-four foursomes will take the course Monday morning to help JDRF reach their $150,000 goal. As each team gets ready for the shotgun start they will be paired with a Carolina Panther or a local celebrity. The tournament is guaranteed to be filled with fun and of course a little competition. Every player wants to go home bragging that they beat a NFC Champ.
The tournament will conclude with a dinner reception and an awards distribution in the luxurious Ballantyne Country Club main dining room.
