49er Legends Join Olympic Greats to Raise Funds for East Bay Community Groups
Celebrity Charity Miniature Golf Tournament Set For June 19
Join Ronnie Lott Saturday, June 19, at Golfland in Milpitas to see 49er football legends, three Olympic Gold & Silver Medalists and Bay Area business and political leaders play miniature golf for charity. The goal of the 5th annual Tina M. Sankoff FUN-DATION(tm) Celebrity Charity Miniature Golf Tournament is to have fun while raising money for local charities.
The action begins at 9:30 a.m. when Olympians Jill Bakken, Millard Hampton, and Andre Phillips test their skills at miniature golf against 49er "golden guys" Ronnie Lott, Keena Turner, and Bryant Young, as well as Gary Plummer, Guy McIntyre, Ronnie Heard, Jimmy Williams, Hall of Fame Coach, John Ralston and Julie Haener from Channel 2 news.
Additional activities include free play on arcade video games, beverages and food, face painting, and Opsey Daisey the clown, with her balloons.
The real winners of the day will be four East Bay community groups that provide vital services. One hundred percent of funds raised will go to California School for the Deaf, LIFE ElderCare, S.A.V.E. (Shelter Against Violent Environments) and Washington Hospital Foundation
Event organizer and President of the FUN-DATION(tm), Tina M. Sankoff is a former Silicon Valley executive whose business skills at Lam Research, Inc. helped that company to grow to a $1.3 billon enterprise. Since her retirement, Ms. Sankoff has devoted her time and energy to raising funds and awareness for essential human needs organizations and community services in the East Bay Area. The FUN-DATION's(tm) motto, "We put the FUN back into giving" is certainly true at this exciting day of sport, entertainment and food for the entire family.
