Celebrities and Pros to Tee Up for Annual George H.W. Bush Celebrity Golf Tournament

As the premiere golf event in Maine, the 9th Annual George H.W. Bush Celebrity Golf Tournament will take place June 14, 2011, at Cape Arundel Golf Club in Kennebunkport with former Patriots and Red Sox players in attendance.

This event also will feature the Point of Light Award, given to an individual or group that has made a significant contribution to the growth of Gary’s House. Previous winners include President George H.W. Bush, American Airlines, and the Maine PGA Professionals. This year’s award will be presented by Eileen Skinner, President and CEO of Mercy Hospital.

The George H.W. Bush Celebrity Golf Tournament has historically brought in more than $150,000 for Gary’s House, a safe and affordable place for families to stay when they have a loved one in the hospital or are undergoing medical treatment in a greater Portland area hospital. This tournament is usually a sold out event for golfers and is a top fundraiser for Gary’s House and essential to supporting its ongoing operations.
