Fresh Start hosts Celebrity Golf Classic in Rancho Santa Fe to benefit children


Celebrities Alfonso Ribeiro and Grant Show, along with sport legends Jermaine Dye, Hank Bauer, David Justice, Eric Dickerson and more, are teeing up for the 21st annual Celebrity Golf Classic. The exciting two-day event will be hosted by Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, a San Diego nonprofit with a mission to change the lives of children with physical deformities through the gift of reconstructive surgery. The fun takes place on March 10 and 11 at Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe where tournament participants will have a hole-in-one opportunity to win a BMW and other great prizes. All proceeds will directly benefit Fresh Start.

“We are so excited for this year’s Celebrity Golf Classic and are really looking forward to a successful and fun-filled day on the green,” said Michelle Pius, director of Major Gifts at Fresh Start. “And that’s part of what makes this event so special, its two days of excitement, 18 holes, and an entire community coming together for one incredible cause — to give disadvantaged children a fresh start at life.”

The festivities begin on Sunday night with an exciting pre-party that includes a reception and dinner beginning at 6 p.m., as well as live and silent auctions with unique items like a Skate Experience for 8 at the exclusive Quiksilver skate park with Tony Hawk, a Kevin Correia Pitching Experience and a men’s Corum Admirals Cup Watch and more.

The next day each foursome will be paired with a celebrity or professional athlete for a day of golf. Registration for the Celebrity Golf Classic begins at 9 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Groups will be able to participate in contests at each hole and giveaways for a chance to win many exciting prizes including Scotty Cameron putters with autographed covers, Titleist drivers and Oakley gear. Limited spots for the tournament and sponsorship opportunities for this exciting event are still available. To register for the Golf Classic or for more information on Fresh Start, visit
