Celebrities such as Dennis Haysbert, Ray Romano, Tim Allen, Andy Garcia, Kevin Nealon and others have been confirmed for the second annual SAG Foundation Golf Classic on June 13 in Tarzana, California, hosted by Criminal Minds stars Joe Mantegna and Thomas Gibson to benefit the SAG Foundation’s Catastrophic Health Fund.
In addition to 18 holes of competitive play, the event will include a live auction and an Awards gala where prizes and special honors will be presented.
“The acting community has a long tradition of support of charitable organizations,” said Mantegna. “With the SAG Foundation it gives us the opportunity to practice the adage of charity starting at home. To help us help others, we need to help our own.”
A celebrity host committee has been convened to support the fundraising effort, which includes Scott Bakula, James Casey, Kevin Dobson, Tom Dreesen, Robert Hays, SAG President Ken Howard, David Hutton, Richard Karn, Richard Kind, Ron Perlman, Pamela Reed, Bill Smitrovich and SAG Foundation President JoBeth Williams.
All proceeds from the SAG Foundation Golf Classic go directly to the SAG Foundation Catastrophic Health Fund, which provides financial relief to actors when illness or injury threatens their ability to work as well as their access to affordable health insurance.
