The Tim Tebow Foundation is hosting its 7th Annual Celebrity Golf Classic, sponsored by American Residential Services, this Saturday, March 4 at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach.

The Celebrity Golf Classic serves as the signature fundraising event for the Tim Tebow Foundation and promises to bring a marquee list of celebrity participants to the First Coast.

Celebrity commitments for the weekend include: Tim Tebow, Harry Connick Jr., Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum, John Smoltz, Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts, Anthony Mackie, Chip & Joanna Gaines, Billy Horschel, Duck Dynasty members, including; Willie & Korie Robertson, Jep & Jessica Robertson and Jase & Missy Robertson, Marcus Allen, Chris Tomlin and many more!

“This is one of my favorite weekends of the year,” said Tim Tebow, Founder and Chairman of the Tim Tebow Foundation. “Not only do we get to enjoy a great golf course and raise money to serve others, but we get to meet and love kids from around the country all day long. I truly believe that it’s much more than a golf tournament, it’s a time for celebrities, fans and sponsors to come together in a really cool environment around TTF’s ministries and actually see them first-hand.”

Over the course of the event’s six years, the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic has raised more than $7 million. The event not only raises money for the foundation’s initiatives, but it also provides a unique atmosphere for North Florida residents unmatched by other events. This weekend, the Tim Tebow Foundation will welcome an array of celebrities to challenge the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course and will provide fans unique interaction opportunities throughout the day.

Highlights include a Lip Sync Competition on the 17th tee for all the golfers, a Silent DJ Dance contest on the 15th tee, a 360-degree Virtual Reality Experience of the recent Night to Shine and the Spectator Putt on the 18th green.

The event also features an Interactive Fan-Zone geared for adults and kids, with merchandise, delicious food and games, making it a fun-filled day for all!

The Tim Tebow Foundation welcomes fans of all ages to experience this one-of-a-kind event in a beautiful setting that raises significant funds for outreach initiatives, as 100% of ticket proceeds from the tournament go towards serving children worldwide. Spectator tickets can be purchased for $15 for adults and $10 for 18 & under through Ticketmaster.

Whether or not fans are able to attend the tournament, everyone can participate in the Helicopter Golf Ball Drop. Each golf ball sponsored by a suggested $15 donation will be dropped by helicopter onto a target on the TPC Sawgrass practice range. This will take place immediately following the tournament, and prizes will be awarded to the five balls closest to the pin. The grand prize is two tickets to next year’s exclusive Celebrity Gala and a meet and greet with Tim Tebow. (No purchase necessary. Visit www.ttfgolfballdrop.com for official rules).
