Press Release

            The David Williams Foundation is proud to announce the Third Annual Celebrity Golf Outing, sponsored once again by Midland States Bank, that will take place on Saturday, June 8, 2024, at the University of Illinois Orange & Blue Golf Courses in Savoy, Illinois.  On Friday, June 7, 2024, there will be a Sponsors Play Day at the Lake of the Woods Golf Course, the site of our inaugural event.

            David Williams was a 2-time First Team All-American at Illinois and is a member of the College Football HOF, Canadian Football HOF, and the University of Illinois Athletics HOF.  His golf outing is designed to raise funds to support underprivileged children, children with medical needs, and their families.  This year, we will be playing for the Tom Jones Challenger League for children with varying degrees of physical or mental challenges and the DASH Project helping children with sports equipment that who couldn’t afford it otherwise, headed by Champaign’s own Olympic Gold Medalist Bonnie Blair.  This year, we are also honoring the 2023-2024 Women's basketball team.  We are includinga donation to the Courtsiders (Illini women's basketball booster group) where all proceeds donated to them will go to the ICON collective for women's basketball.

            Athletes that appeared last year besides David were Keith Byars, Keith Taylor, Craig Swoope, Brandon Lloyd, Dee Brown, Johnnie Johnson, Rickey Foggie, Jack Trudeau, Chris White, Mike White, Deon Thomas, Cam Benson, Art Still, David Fulcher, Randy Taylor, Bonnie Blair & Dave Cruikshank.  We expect to have as many or more celebrities at this golf outing as well.

            More information will be coming soon as well as an updated list of celebrities.  For sponsorships and playing information, as well as any other questions, please contact Ryan McClure (rmmcclu1@yahoo.com), Tom Scaggs (scaggs22@aol.com) or Larry Rolle (LarryR@RBRL.com).
