Party to benefit Children's Clinic to be held Monday

ANDERSON — The day before the St. John's Children's Clinic Classic golf tournament, a celebrity event will be held that is open to the public.

On Monday, at Anderson Country Club, the Celebrity Benefit and Pairings Party will feature PGA players running instruction clinics along with silent auctions.

The PGA players are Mark Calcavecchia, Billy Ray Brown and John Mahaffey. Some of the auction items include lessons with the pros. Some other auctions are for Indiana Pacers suite tickets.

To reserve a spot for the Celebrity Benefit Party, call 646-8710.

This is the second year for this event. "We were thrilled that more than 200 people came out for our first benefit," said event co-chairman Rob Loose. "It is a beautiful outdoor event on the patio and golf course. We hope even more people from the community will join us this year."

Cost of a ticket for this event is $30. Those who have paid to play in the golf tournament, the ticket for the Monday event is included in that price.

The benefit will feature the unveiling of the celebrity pairings. Some of the celebrity golfers from Tuesday's Children's Clinic Classic are expected to attend. There will be signature drinks, food and entertainment.

This year's golf event is celebrating its 30th birthday. The idea was originally the brainchild of former Dodgers pitcher Carl Erskine and former Classic chair Wilbur Roby. The event was known for several years as the Sandi Patty Golf Classic.

Proceeds from both the Friday party and the Tuesday golf benefits the St. John's Children's Clinic. Past events have collectively raised about $1.4 million for the clinic.

Celebrities from past golf events include players and team officials from the Indianapolis Colts, ex-players from the Indiana Pacers and Indianapolis Indians as well as ex-players and coaches from Indiana, Purdue and Butler.
