Penn State men’s basketball head coach Pat Chambers is preparing to host the 20th anniversary of the Coaches vs. Cancer Charity Golf Tournament on Thursday and Friday.
Festivities begin Thursday with the sponsor/captain reception at the new Penn State Golf Course Pavilion and continue all day Friday with two flights of golf on Penn State’s Blue and White Courses and an evening reception in Beaver Stadium’s Mount Nittany Club.
The annual Silent Auction has moved online. Penn State fans can bid on jewelry, athletics tickets, gift certificates for food or services, plus numerous memorabilia items. Among them is a signed Tim Frazier NBA jersey and a signed jersey from Stanley Cup finalist Carl Hagelin. Anyone can create a “Bidding for Good” account (www.biddingforgood.com/auction/auctionhome.action?auctionId=262124663) and place bids until 9 p.m. Thursday.
A host of special guests are expected throughout the course of the event, including former NBA and Penn State players, current and former head coaches, department leaders and special guests.
Approximately 300 golfers and 60 groups are participating in the tournament, which stands as the flagship event for a year-round CVC-Penn State program. CVC-Penn State topped the $2.5 million mark in fundraising this year and is beginning the push to $3 million.
