Hannibal Regional Foundation will host their annual Shoeless Joe’s Celebrity Golf Classic Wednesday, June 8th at Norwoods Golf Course. The Foundation partners with the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame to put on the tournament, and Raymond James Financial Services is once again proud to be the Golf Classic Official Sponsor for this year’s event.
The Shoeless Joe’s Golf Classic allows participants the opportunity to play with a member of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame and/or other sports celebrities. In recent years celebrity guests have included former St. Louis Cardinals football players Mel Gray, Johnny Roland and Eric Williams along with former Chiefs players Art Still, Tony Reed and Ted McKnight; as well as All-American tight-end for the University of Missouri, Chase Coffman.
“This is such a fun event and we are so appreciative of Raymond James and all those who sponsor and participate. The support over the years has been overwhelming, raising over $900,000 for Hannibal Regional since we started it 12 years ago,” shares Wendy Harrington, Hannibal Regional Foundation President & CEO. “We are happy to be able to host this event again and look forward to another great year!”
All of the proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Hannibal Regional Foundation’s Helping Hearts Campaign. Funds for this campaign will assist with a renovation of the cardiac rehab space at Hannibal Regional Hospital, support the purchase of new equipment, programs and other resources for our cardiac rehab patients.
