Proceeds raised from the Celebrity Golf Classic will benefit the West Columbia Beautification Foundation, honoring the late Bill Mooneyhan, Sr. who passed away unexpectedly in February.

Celebrities playing in the tournament include Lee Ann Walker, Clarissa Childs, Rick Seratte, Thad Daber and more.
“The celebrities really make it because they’re avid golfers and they love coming out and having a good time and supporting a good cause,” Boone said.
