Tampa Bay Buccaneers Derrick Brooks and Warrick Dunn will partner for the Brooks and Dunn Inaugural Golf Classic in January 2009.

Brooks and Dunn – the footballers, not the country music duo – will split the proceeds from the two-day golf event between their respective charities, the Derrick Brooks Charities and the Warrick Dunn Foundation. The event, held at Cypress Run – a private golf club in Tarpon Springs, Florida – will include a reception, live and silent auction, raffle prizes, and celeb-studded golf tournament. Included in each participating foursome will be a celebrity from the National Football League, National Basketball Association, or Major League Baseball.

Both Brooks’ and Dunn’s organizations are both aimed at helping underprivileged families and children throughout the southeastern United States. Derrick Brooks Charities aims to provide educational opportunities for socio-economically challenged youth to inspire leadership; while the Warrick Dunn Foundation is dedicated to providing opportunities for economically-disadvantaged single parents and children committed to achieving financial independence and stability.

Both charities were founded in 1997 and have since helped more than 1,000 people. Says Derrick Brooks, “Our foundations are working toward the common goal of helping less fortunate families succeed and pursue their dreams.”
