Looking Ahead: The 18th Annual Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic Weekend

Everyone get your golf claps ready because we are getting excited about the 2011 Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic in August! We are thrilled that we will have another year to offer a weekend of fun, entertainment and golf in the Triangle. The weekend will have a fun mix of events, starting with the ESPN Pre-V golf tournament that will be held in Pinehurst on August 25-26. Participants will be playing the newly renovated Pinehurst No. 2 course and will enjoy accommodations at the Holly and Carolina hotels.

Then the weekend will be in full swing for the V Gala on Saturday night held at the Raleigh Convention Center Grand Ballroom. This black-tie affair will include both silent and live auctions and will celebrate The V Foundation’s achievements in the past year.

The main event will start at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday when our participants and celebrities will take to the Lonnie Poole Golf Course for some friendly competition. This year we will also have a celebrity long drive contest which will be a fun event for spectators!
