Scotty McCreery to join Jimmy V Golf Classic

In "But of course" news ...
Scotty McCreery, golf afficionado and proud Wolfpack fan, will participate in this summer's Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic.
The annual golf weekend raises money for The V Foundation for Cancer Research and is named for the beloved former N.C. State basketball coach Jim Valvano. Valvano died of cancer in 1993.
The 2011 "American Idol" winner -- and rising N.C. State freshman -- is slated to participate in the Sunday golf tournament portion of the Classic weekend, which  begins on Thursday, August 23 with the ESPN Pre-V at Pinehurst. Sunday's tournament happens at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course on N.C. State's Centennial Campus.
This year's goal is to fund a one million dollar grant for research and diagnostics of the cancers affecting 9/11 First Responders who worked at Ground Zero.
Other celebrities scheduled to attend are NBA Hall-of-Famer Charles Barkley, N.C. State basketball coach Mark Gottfried, 'NYSYNC star Joey Fatone, 2005 World Series MVP Jermaine Dye, and "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison. A number of ESPN personalities and Carolina Hurricanes players are also always involved.
There's also a Pairings Party and a Reverse Raffle for a BMW 128i on August 24 at the Raleigh Convention Center, and The V Gala will take place on Saturday night. Entertainment for the gala will be opera singing NYPD officer Daniel Rodriguez and a "Jersey Boys" tribute show.
For info on tickets (and for volunteer slots) check out the Jimmy V Golf Classic website.

  5. When someone makes what you feel is an unnecessary comment, I feel it's best just to ignore it. Negative bantering back and forth makes it uncomfortable for the rest of us. Just saying---

  6. Find it interesting that so many people on these sites are so sensitive when any other young singer is mentioned. This always seems to promote some type of discord. Yet Scotty is always kind, giving, and positive. Are these dingbats for real? ? Grow up and do something productive in this world. Scotty is a great example. Get busy.
