Celebrity Championship Golf Tournament hosted by Marshall Faulk
Super Bowl champion (XXXIV), Seven times Pro Bowl. AP NFL Most Valuable Player. Can you guess who we are talking about? San Diego State great and NFL Hall-of-Famer Marshall Faulk – did you guess right? PromoDrone was more than a little excited to be at Faulk’s 2017 Celebrity Championship held May 18-21, 2017. And Faulk wasn’t the only celebrity at the event – more than 30 athletes, actors, and musicians participated in the tournament.
This event was fun for all, not just golf enthusiasts. The celebrities signed autographs and took photos with the excited fans, children enjoyed free popcorn, snow cones, and inflatable bounce houses, and both children and adults competed for prizes at putting contests.
This weekend long competition raised $135,000 for The Junior Seau Foundation and The Marshall Faulk Foundation, and since the tournament’s inception in 1999, it has raised more than $2 million on behalf of numerous San Diego-based charities.
The weather was beautiful – clear skies, lots of visibility, not a lot of wind. This was the perfect stage at the Morgan Run golf course in Rancho Santa Fe for PromoDrone to showcase what we do. Our team kept busy during this event – our Co-Founder Xavier Rodriguez operated the drone that flew banners around for select VIP sponsors while Co-Founder Jamar Williams kept his eyes on the ground, manning the table we had set up with information about PromoDrone and all of the services we provide.
By the end of the tournament, NFL kicker Josh Scobee shot five under par, beating six-time champion, Rick Rhoden, by one stroke with a birdie on the final hole to take the grand prize. But after giving our clients a tremendous amount of visibility among the attendees (fans AND celebrities) and being able to participate in this charity event? We felt like winners, too!
