Canes Players to Take Part in Jimmy V Golf Classic
Brind'Amour, Cole, Corvo and LaRose will play in annual celebrity tournament
RALEIGH, NC—Carolina Hurricanes captain Rod Brind’Amour, his Hurricanes teammates Erik Cole, Joe Corvo and Chad LaRose, and Hurricanes television voice John Forslund, will take part in this weekend’s Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic. Events surrounding the Golf Classic are already underway, and will culminate on Sunday as the celebrity field tees off at 9:30 a.m., at Lonnie Poole Golf Course at North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus in Raleigh.
The Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic began in 1994, and has raised more than $13 million for the V Foundation for Cancer Research. The Golf Classic and the V Foundation for Cancer Research are named for former NC State men’s basketball coach Jim Valvano, who, along with ESPN, formed the Foundation in 1993 prior to losing his battle against bone cancer. The Hurricanes have been involved in supporting the V Foundation and the Golf Classic since arriving in North Carolina in 1997.
Tickets for the Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic are available to the general public for $5 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster. Please visit www.golfclassic.org for more information.
