Opportunities are still available to participate in the inaugural American Legion Post 287 (Deerfield Beach) Celebrity Golf Tournament on the weekend of July 19.
The event will be at the Deer Creek Golf Club, 2801 Country Club Blvd., Deerfield Beach.
An extensive cast of former professional athletes are scheduled to participate.
Organizers said interest has been good.
“The response I’ve gotten from people who want to participate is that they respect the American Legion and what it has to offer to veterans,” said event coordinator Denise Martin, who herself served in the U.S. Coast Guard.
Proceeds will benefit military veterans and their families from the community.
Registration fee is $125 per player or $400 for a foursome. Tee time is 8:15 a.m. shotgun start. Tournament day registration begins at 7 a.m. An awards luncheon will follow, including prize raffle and a drawing.
