A Toast Before Tournament

Originally printed at

Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Golf and Baseball pros gear up for the 9th annual Jim "Mudcat" Grant All Star Golf Tournament.

On Thursday, 32 celebrities including 28 professional golfers will hit the green, along with 5 legendary African American Major League Baseball pitchers from the "Black Aces."

On Wednesday night, organizers held a toast at the Security Mutual building, thanking sponsors for their support.

"Tonight is really for the sponsors to thank them for their financial support to make this all occur. Of course, they get to bring their family and friends to meet all the celebrities," says Bill Boyer, of Security Mutual Life.

All proceeds from the tournament benefit local organizations, like Catholic Charities, Community Hunger Outreach Program, the Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton and the Broome County Urban League.

WBNG is a proud sponsor.

Our own Brendan O'Reilly will emcee the event.
