Trent Tucker Celebrity Tournament Weekend 2008

A weekend of fun, A lifetime of impact.

That's the theme and goal of the 2008 Trent Tucker Celebrity Golf and Poker Tournament, set for September 11th-13th.

Michael Jordan heads the list of celebrities and entertainers committed to participate in the event's 10th year.

Since 1998 the tournament has raised more than $1 million for local charities and provides crucial funding for the Trent Tucker Youth Program, an initiative that provides Twin Cities at-risk middle school students with leadership training, career development and educational opportunities. Other sports celebrities expected to participate are former NBA stars Patrick Ewing and Scottie Pippen.

"It's gratifying to see so many celebrities and friends, such as Michael Jordan, return to our event year after year," said Trent Tucker, former University of Minnesota and NBA basketball star and founder of the Trent Tucker Non-profit Organization.

"They come back because they really want to make a difference in the lives of young people, and this is one way they can put their commitment into action."

The event kicks off with a poker tournament at Running Aces Harness Park in Columbus, Minn. on Thursday, Sept. 11th.

An invitation-only celebrity VIP reception hosted by Bentley and Maserati of Minneapolis is set for Friday, Sept. 12, followed by an open-to-the-public party at the Epic, Minneapolis.

The golf tournament will be held Saturday, Sept. 13 at Rush Creek Golf Club, Maple Grove.
