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 Jeff Mitchell of the Carolina Panthers as the celebrity chair.  Coach John Fox has also agreed to attend in case any of his players need a little coaching on their swing. 


Panthers players scheduled to attend include Steve Beuerlein, Frank Garcia, Bill Ferrario, Casey Cramer, Will Witherspoon, Travelle Wharton, Al Wallace and many more including 9 panther coaches.


Twenty-one foursomes will take the course Monday morning to help JDRF reach their $130,000 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 Carolina Panther. 


The tournament will conclude with a dinner reception and an awards distribution in the luxurious Ballantyne Country Club main dining room.
