For a substantial price (going toward a noble cause), Bucs fans will have an opportunity to chat — and perhaps even chip — with the likes of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski later this month.
The Arians Family Foundation announced Thursday that its seventh annual celebrity golf classic will be held April 18-19 at Innisbrook Golf Resort in Palm Harbor. Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the Arians Family Foundation, which supports Court- Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and the local guardian ad litem programs of greater Tampa.
Brady, Gronkowski, and linebacker Shaquil Barrett are among those confirmed to appear and participate, as well as former Bucs players, other current and former NFL players and additional celebrities. Country music artist Chase Rice is scheduled to perform a special concert at the Sunday night gala dinner on April 18 to kick off the event.
Sponsor packages vary in price, from $125,000 (for four foursomes, two-night stay with 16 guest rooms at Innisbrook, a celebrity player for each team pairing, etc.) to $2,500 (one player spot, Sunday night dinner, Monday night post-golf reception). Information on all packages can be found here.
