Champions for PLAY This golf event features a four-person scramble benefiting Private Leisure Assistance for Youth (P.L.A.Y.). This high-profile event attracts business leaders and sponsors from a variety of industries to enjoy a full day of golfing activities complete with an evening auction. The continued success of this special event relies on corporate sponsorship which enables 100% of the golfers' fees to go directly to P.L.A.Y. Sports celebrities add a special aspect to the day. Honorary spokesperson, Mike Doss, 2002 National Champion, 3X All-American (2000, 2001, 2002) and 2006 Super Bowl winner, asks other former Buckeyes to join him as celebrity golfers.
