Each year since 1970, the Memorial Foundation hosts the Los Angeles Police-Celebrity Golf Tournament. During the tournament, corporate sponsors are paired with celebrities and officers for a fun filled day of golf, great food, awards and camaraderie in a festive open house atmosphere that includes thirty Department displays and is attended by 5,000-8,000 spectators. Each year, over thirty celebrities from the sports, television and movie industry participate in the Los Angeles Police-Celebrity Golf Tournament.
