As Jimmy Connors' famed Wimbledon opponent, James Bond’s co-star in Octopussy, and a UN Ambassador of Peace, Vijay Amritraj is considered many things to many people. But on the weekend of October 12th, Vijay will be showing his charitable side as his foundation hosts its Charity Celebrity Golf Classic at Lost Canyons Golf Club, and its Gala Banquet at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday October 13th. The beautiful Parminder Nagra – star of Bend it Like Beckham and ER – will be among the hosts at the Gala Banquet.
Among the celebs expected to attend either of the events are Chuck Norris, Rick Schroder, Charles Durning, and Beverly Johnson. It also looks like it is a done deal for a few of the NBC models from the game show Deal or No Deal will be celebrity golfers. Many more celebs are expected to confirm this week. The Dr. Phil show provided VIP passes and other goodies for auction.
The funds raised by the Vijay Amritraj Foundation will help people in India in a wide variety of ways including educating women, children, a school for the blind and provide healthcare for AIDS/HIV afflicted.
