Tuesday marked the third annual Tic Toc Stop Golf Outing at Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, New York. In the three years of the foundation, started by WFAN’s Craig Carton, there have been over 20 events, with the golf event being one of the major fundraisers. Nearly $250,000 was raised at the event, bringing the total amount raised in the three years to over $1.5 million.
There were around 100 golfers at the beautiful course Tuesday, composed of foursomes and fivesomes, with each group including a celebrity golfer. The celebs who made it out included Boomer Esiason, John Franco, Otis Anderson, Ray Rice, Adam Graves, Gerry Cooney, John Starks, Claudio Reyna, Wally Szczerbiak, Chris Simms, Constantine Maroulis and Fireman Ed.
All money raised funds important research to help improve the lives of individuals living with Tourette syndrome. The money also completely funds Camp Carton, which is a one-week sleep-away camp for kids with Tourette’s. To donate and find out more, visit TicTocStop.com.
