Beyond The Lights Celebrity Golf Classic Increases Its Success - Two Charities Benefit

Celebrity Golf Classic Founded by "Friday Night Lights" Cast and Crew Has Best Year Yet

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) August 26, 2011

The Beyond the Lights Celebrity Golf Classic and Disc Golf Classic successfully raised over $200,000 at its 4th Annual event on Friday and Saturday, May 13-14th, at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa with net proceeds benefitting Gridiron Heroes Spinal Cord Injury Foundation and The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. Each successive year the tournament has shattered the previous year’s expectations due to the intense level of commitment from sponsors, celebrities, friends and volunteers. This year’s picture-perfect day of golf, with an evening gala and disc golf tournament was hosted by “Friday Night Lights” actors Kyle Chandler and Brad Leland.

Celebrities in attendance included actors Scott Porter, Taylor Kitsch, and Jesse Plemons from DirecTV/NBC’s critically acclaimed television series “Friday Night Lights”, Dallas Cowboys coach Dave Campo and player Terence Newman, Rex Linn from “CSI Miami” and new University of Texas Defensive Coordinator, Manny Diaz, among others.

The voice of the Dallas Cowboys, Brad Sham, and KBLJ Radio’s Ed Clements presided over the Gala’s live auction. Live auction packages included a trip for four to the Hollywood Movie Premiere of Super 8, and set tours of “CSI Miami” hosted by Rex Linn.

Founded by Kyle Chandler, Brad Leland and “Friday Night Lights” camera operator Heather Page, the tournaments and gala raise funds for charities that help those with spinal cord injuries. Event Director, Heather Page, stated, “That the TV series was coming to an end made the 2011 event seem bittersweet at first. We weren’t sure if we’d continue on beyond the length of the show, but this year’s event proves that support for our efforts to help these spinal cord injury charities continues to grow. So, we’re looking forward to planning next year’s tournament and keeping Beyond the Lights an event that people can look forward to every year.”
