Jack Nicklaus Hosts 5th Annual Buoniconti Fund Celebrity Golf Invitational

Fall 2006 — Golfing legend Jack Nicklaus has done it again. The Golden Bear hosted the 5th Annual Buoniconti Celebrity Golf Invitational at his exclusive golf course, The Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Florida to help raise more than $500,000 this past November. Celebrity friends included: NFL Hall of Famers Nick Buoniconti and Bob Griese, NBA Hall of Famers John Havlicek and KC Jones, and MLB Hall of Famer Gary Carter (to name a few). The celebrities and supporters teed off on the phenomenal course for a beautiful day filled with on-course contests, an awards ceremony and a sumptuous luncheon. Our gracious Presenting Sponsors, Mark Dalton of The Tudor Group and Kenneth Tropin, helped make this tournament a huge success.

“If you’ve followed Jack’s life, you know that his standards are high as a husband, father, friend, gentleman and businessman,” said Nick Buoniconti. “It should come as no surprise when I tell you that, through the direct efforts of Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, over $2.5 million have been raised the past five years through this tournament.”
