Almost 190 golfers participated and played alongside other professional athletes such as Steve Smith, Jonathan Stewart, Mike Tolbert, Ron Rivera and Luke Kuechly. Everything took place on the weekend of May 6 to 7, so it was a great way to celebrate and kick off the spring season in Charlotte. In addition to that, Davis also hosted a free football camp at Revolution Park for which over 400 kids showed up to get dirty and test their ball handling skills. Overall it was a fun filled weekend that highlighted a lot of the great things summer has to offer, and made leaps and bounds towards raising funds for Davis’ foundation as well.

The Shellman, Georgia native got his start in sports at a young age when he was a part of his high school football team. This helped him earn an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Georgia where he played under Coach Mark Richt. He entered the 2005 NFL Draft where he was selected in the first round as the 14th overall pick by the Carolina Panthers with whom he still plays for. The 2015 NFC Champion is the winner of this year’s “Whizzer” White NFL Man of the Year award.

Davis showed up in Charlotte this summer to host a fantastic golf event that happened on May 6-7 at the Old Sycamore Golf Plantation. Almost 200 players participated and were able to boost the NFL star’s foundation’s resources.

Bryan BickellFormer NHL player Bryan Bickell is scheduled to be the guest speaker for this year’s Miles For Mo event that’s happening on June 15 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Toronto, Canada. Tickets to get into the event will cost $50 and all proceeds will benefit The MS Society of Canada. Along with admission, drinks, silent auction items, and food will be provided. During his talk, Bickell is expected to share some fun stories about his time in the NHL as well as the things that he did to overcome some of the more difficult experiences that he encountered. It should be an educational, motivational, and inspiring event for everyone who decides to attend.

The Orono, Ontario native practiced both baseball and hockey while growing up in Canada. Even though he was scouted at one time by the New York Yankees, he chose to focus his professional career on playing hockey. Prior to landing a spot on any team, however, he had to work many construction full-time jobs to keep up with his budget and earn a living while waiting for his dream career. He entered the 2004 NHL Entry Draft where he was selected in the second round as the 41st overall pick. Bickell stayed with his Chicago team until his retirement earlier this year on April 8, 2017, just before his last professional game on the ice against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Bickell will be in Toronto later this month on June 15th for a two-hour event between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. to take part in this year’s Miles For Mo fundraiser. All money raised as this function will go directly to the MS Society of Canada. It will be a fun-filled evening, so get your tickets today if you live in the area!

The function will take place in Bakersfield, California and is sure to draw in lots of guests to see this world renowned swimming star. Phelps will likely discuss some of the hardships in his life and how they attributed to his great success in his career as an athlete. He will also talk about some of what the Hoffman Hospice organization provides for patients and their families in need, as all of the proceeds will benefit their cause.

The Baltimore, Maryland native began participating in swimming when he was just seven years old and his parents concluded that he needed an activity to use up all of his high energy. By the time he was 15, he joined the United States Olympic team’s roster, and was the youngest person to do so in almost 70 years. Before even getting to the biggest athletic competition in the world, the Olympics, Phelps won several gold medals at World Championship games which was a fantastic avenue to set him up for the 28 medals that he would eventually win over the next 12 years and four summer Olympic games.

Phelps will be speaking at this year’s Voices of Inspiration fundraiser to raise money for the Hoffman Hospice in Bakersfield, California. Given that he is such an influential person in the sports industry, there is no doubt that the turnout this year will be fantastic.

Kurt Warner Speaking FEePro Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner has been announced as the keynote speaker for the Unitas fundraiser that is happening on July 29th in west Tennessee. The former athlete will help the Unitas organization raise money for philanthropic purposes in the state and will no doubt make a difference in the upcoming months. Numerous generous corporations gathered at last year’s function and were able to raise more than a quarter of a million dollars, and officials are predicting a similar result for this year’s benefit. Warner is a fantastic choice as a speaker for this year’s event as the coordinators are confident that he will be able to relate to the attendees on a personal level and share some of his most inspiring moments from life in the NFL and what he has been up to since then.

The Burlington, Iowa native played some football in college but went undrafted after leaving school in 1994 and ended up stocking shelves in a grocery store for a mere $5.50 an hour. Since no NFL team was willing to give him a chance, Warner decided to try out for an AFL team and ended up really making a name for himself as a star athlete. This caught the attention of the NFL scouts and they invited him to try out for the Chicago Bears, but ended up signing with the Rams in 1998 instead. In 2005, the former pro signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals and was named the starting quarterback for the team. He played for Arizona for four seasons before retiring from the field for good. The Super Bowl XXXIV champion and MVP also became a broadcaster for the Iowa Barnstormers during the 2011 Arena Football League season.

Warner will be present at the annual Unitas fundraiser that is happening at the end of next month, which was just recently announced by United Way of West Tennessee. It will be a very inspirational talk and hopefully, will help the organizers raise plenty of funds to assist and benefit local programs.

The function took place at the Smoot Theatre in Parkersburg and served as an effort to encourage local development based on the area’s natural gas resources. In total, around 500 area business leaders and residents attended the program which intended on bringing in some high-energy intensive manufacturing industries to the central Ohio Valley. These industries are hoping to spread to this part of the country due to business growth, and Huggins spoke about how his life changed for the better when someone taught him about changing strategies and directions. The main message he wanted to leave his audience with was that they can’t fear change, and that hard work gives everyone a better chance to succeed.

The Morgantown, West Virginia native spent some time growing up in the state of Ohio and even attended Ohio University for a while before returning to his birth state. He ended up playing basketball for West Virginia, but after not getting too far with the NBA he decided to take the coaching route and work as a graduate assistant at his university in 1977. The two-time NCAA Regional Championship coach worked for many educational establishments over the years including Ohio State, Walsh, Central Florida, Akron, Cincinnati, and Kansas State. Currently, he is once again the coach for the West Virginia men’s team.

Huggins recently traveled to Parkersburg to be the speaker for the Shale Crescent USA event that happened earlier this month on May 23. He offered a lot of solid advice and motivating words, so no one in the audience left disappointed.

Former NFL coach Sam Wyche visited the North Augusta Chamber of Commerce’s Power Lunch to give a talk to the audience about the importance of organ donation. The event happened on Wednesday, May 24th, and Wyche compared the parallels between football and the workforce, as well as the skills that translate between the two.
