PGA Tour veteran Jim Furyk, the former Pennsylvania resident who hosted a charity event in the Philadelphia area for 11 years, is once again going to bat for charity in the area.
Fuyrk, the 2010 PGA Tour player of the year, and several other tour members and celebrities will host the PGA Tour Celebrity Server night on June 28 at Morton's The Steakhouse in King of Prussia. The charity function is one of the events associated with the AT&T National beginning June 30 at Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square.
Furyk and friends will be serving up steaks, and the proceeds will go to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and other Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
The evening includes a reception and silent auction, dinner and a live auction. Tickets are $300 and can be obtained at www.helpmakemiracles.org/event/celebrityserversnight.
For 11 years, Furyk, who was born in West Chester and raised in the Lancaster area, hosted the Exelon Invitational, a Skins game that featured he and three other PGA Tour players. The event raised more than $1 million for charity, primarily the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.
