Golf Tournament in Buffalo, NY
Celebrity Classic in Buffalo, NY

Jim Kelly Celebrity Classic

Due to COVID-19, it will not be possible to hold the 34th Annual Jim Kelly Celebrity Classic as scheduled on May 31st and June 1st however we are happy to announce we are anticipating the new date to be Sunday August 9th for the VIP Party and Monday August 10th for the golf tournament.  Although this pandemic has caused our events to be delayed our mission remains the same. 

Over 50 celebrities come together from the sports and entertainment industry for a memorable weekend.

The VIP Party takes place on the Sunday before the tournament, and typically over 1,000 people are in attendance. It includes a Chinese, silent, and live auction with some of the most unique sports memorabilia. Food stations, live entertainment, and an exciting program keep attendees busy when not bidding on items.

Each foursome is paired with a celebrity golfer, and at the Gala, we offer a celebrity draft which gives all foursomes the opportunity to bid on a specific celebrity to golf with on Monday.

You will never experience a tournament like this! We have over 50 foursomes at a 27-hole course and lots of great prizes and raffle items! We also have four themed tents located throughout the course that offers a variety of food and music, and we have many levels of sponsorships available. A great way to contribute to a great cause!

We are anticipating that the VIP Party will take place on Sunday, August 9th at the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls, NY.
We are anticipating that the Golf Tournament will take place on Monday, August 10th at Terry Hills Golf Course in Batavia.
