Do you have a passion for charitable endeavors and would like to help improve the lives of San Diego youth? You are able to support local San Diego charitable organizations through the 2014 Celebrity Championship golf tournament May 16th-18th! Since its inception in 1999, the Celebrity Championship has raised over $1.2 million dollars for San Diego based charities. The 2014 Celebrity Championship charitable beneficiaries are the Junior Seau Foundation and the Marshall Faulk Foundation.
The Junior Seau Foundation was founded in 1992 with the purpose of raising money and resources for programs that inspire young people to face life’s challenges with enthusiasm, hope and dignity. The proceeds from the Celebrity Championship will benefit the Shop with a Jock program of the Junior Seau Foundation. Every December, the Junior Seau Foundation will team up with Target and over 250 local professional and amateur athletes to give 250 underprivileged children from the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Diego the opportunity to shop for gifts for their loved ones.
The Marshall Faulk Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for San Diego youth by increasing opportunities for them to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. To date, the Marshall Faulk Foundation has provided more than $1 million dollars in financial assistance and hands-on involvement to programs in Indianapolis, St. Louis, New Orleans and Southern California. The Marshall Faulk Foundation provides funding for The JRYMCA's youth sports programs and after care and also provides scholarships for athletes at San Diego State University.
