On May 23rd, nearly 200 golfers filled the courses of The Shaker Heights Country Club and The Country Club to play in the 23rd Annual Brian Brennan Golf Tournament to benefit Boys Hope Girls Hope. Sponsored by KeyBank and Classic Auto Group, this annual event is a critical part of Boys Hope Girls Hope’s operating budget.
After a morning of thunderstorms plagued Northeast Ohio, the sun came out just in time for the 12:30pm shot-gun start. Golfers enjoyed a day of leisurely golf, connecting with old friends and colleagues. After playing, golfers came together for cocktails and dinner at Shaker Heights Country Club where they were welcomed by former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Brennan. An exciting live auction followed, which included a weeklong escape in Hilton Head, box seats to the Notre Dame vs. USC game, and four front row Cavs tickets behind the bench. The evening capped with special guest speaker Bernie Kosar who delighted the audience with lively stories from his days as star Cleveland Browns quarterback.
Brian Brennan helped launch this event 23 years ago to raise money and awareness for Boys Hope Girls Hope. Over the years the tournament has raised over $3 million dollars to support Boys Hope Girls Hope Northeastern Ohio.
