Actor Bill Murray is once again behind the annual Murray Brothers Caddyshack Charity Golf Tournament, this year to raise money for Guardian Catholic Schools – a non-profit organization located in Jacksonville, Florida.
Bill Murray and his five brothers – Andy, Brian, Ed, Joel, and John – began the annual tournament eight years ago at the launching of their Caddyshack Restaurant at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida. Since then they have raised millions of dollars for charity.
An avid golfer, Murray worked alongside his brothers as a caddy to fund his high school tuition. Many of their antics showed up later in the Caddyshack movie.
“This weekend is always a highlight of my year,” he said. “It’s a great time to get together with my family, share laughs with old friends and new, and of course squeeze in a couple rounds of golf at some of the finest courses in the country.”
The Guardian Catholic Schools organization was established in 1995 by community and business leaders of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds. Their mission is “to participate in God’s work by supplying resources to St. Pius V and Holy Rosary Catholic schools to support them in providing educational and spiritual opportunities to children and families regardless of religious preference or economic status.”
This year’s tournament takes place on April 23/24 at the King & Bear and Slammer & Squire golf courses in Florida. Celebrities confirmed to appear include Kevin Sorbo, Melissa Joan Hart, Diane Neal (Law & Order SVU), Paula Trickey (The OC and CSI) and many more.
