Sports and entertainment celebrities took to the green in a parade of carts lead by top LPGA players Angela Stanford, Kristy McPherson and Gerina Piller, giving participants the opportunity to experience a game with the pros. Other celebrities/artists included Titans player Rob Bironas, Racing Country‘s Cathy Martindale, The Roys, Joanna Smith, Ira Dean, Dave Innis and Paul Gregg of Restless Heart, Rockie Shipes, Joe Diffie, Ty Brown, Rick Huckaby, Kim Tribble, Don Ellis Gatlin, and Scotty Alexander.
“I am blessed to have such great friends in the entertainment and sports community who donated their time for this event,” said Lawrence. “From the sponsors to the volunteers, they all gave so that women would have the resources to overcome breast cancer. I am grateful for their support.”
