MMJGA Golf Tounaments

Leo Lewis Celebrity Golf ClassicLeo Lewis Tournament
A Success

On Monday, July 16, 2007 the caddies of the MMJGA piled in a bus and headed to The Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake to caddie for the Leo Lewis Celebrity Golf Classic—a fundraiser for both the MMJGA and the Lewis Sports Foundation. Sixteen of our finest caddies participated in the celebrity event that included former college and professional athletes, local radio personalities and other local celebrities. It was a challenging day for our participants who cart caddied for several golfers at a time. In cart caddying, the caddie does not have to carry a bag but they are responsible for cleaning clubs, replacing divots and tending the flagstick for everyone in the group. It was a long round with most of the caddies out on the course for over five hours but in the end it was good payday with some caddies making over $100. The busy day was capped off with a banquet in their honor and an auction aiming to raise more money for the organizations.

The Lewis Sports Foundation tees off with MMJGA.

Join the fun at the 5th Annual Leo Lewis Celebrity Golf Classic, presented in partnership with the MMJGA, July 16th at The Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake, Minnesota.

The Lewis Sports Foundation has joined forces with MMJGA to present the 5th Annual Leo Lewis Celebrity Golf Classic fundraising tournament. Former Viking Leo Lewis himself will join caddies and MMJGA supporters for a day of fun at the Wilds Golf Club in Prior Lake MN. The day's events will include hole events, rounds, an auction and a luncheon, as well as a full dinner and speakers. "Our organization recognizes the important work of the MMJGA and we're happy to be able to help in this way. We're looking forward to a fantastic day with the MMJGA community!" Lewis said.

Lewis created his foundation in 1999 as a way to help youth "establish a balance between education, citizenship, life management and sport." The Lewis Sports Foundation mentors and instructs young athletes, partners with agencies to provide wellness and fitness programming, and provides research and discussion regarding the impact of sports on American culture. "Our common goal of helping youth navigate the challenges of young adulthood creates a natural fit between the foundation and MMJGA," Lewis said.

Clayton Tyler, "Leo and I have been looking for an opportunity that would both benefit the kids and introduce the vital communities behind these organizations to each other. I have no doubt that the guests and caddies will have a memorable day, and may even find some new friends." Additional celebrity appearances by Viking pro players and others are expected throughout the day.
