The Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic began in 1994, and has raised more than $19 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.
