The annual Reid and Fiorentino Call of the Game Dinner and Celebrity Golf Classic took place this week at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle in Aventura. The two-day event benefiting the Lauren’s Kids foundation and Dade Schools Athletic Foundation united a total of 56 foursomes who took to the two championship courses alongside more than 50 of today’s biggest names in sports. Sun Sports HEAT TV broadcaster Tony Fiorentino was pleased with the outcome of this year’s fundraising event.
“We couldn’t have asked for better weather during this year’s Celebrity Golf Classic. We had a great turnout and the tournament included some of today’s greatest athletes that gave the day a nice competitive edge. The sports and South Florida community ultimately came together for a most enjoyable day of golf that will benefit our kids in the community and throughout the region,” said Fiorentino
Reid and Fiorentino cut-glass trophies were presented to the team coming in first place, which included team members Blair Byrnes, Jack Brown, Bobby Chahal, Alex Thornton and Mark Higgs, as winners on the Miller Course, and Bruce Keir, Doug Donn, Bob Ethridge, Mike Stiber and Patti Rizzo, as the winning team from the Soffer Course. Runners-up awards were also presented, along with prizes for the “Most Honest,” ”Closest-to-the-Hole” and “Longest Drive” for both courses.
The very next day, the celebratory events continued with the annual Call of the Game Dinner, presented by Publix. Master of Ceremonies for the evening Jason Jackson presented some of the most esteemed figures in the sports industry with prestigious awards; including the Don Shula Sports Legend Award awarded to Miami Dolphins Hall of Fame quarterback and NFL/College Football Analyst Bob Griese, and the Sonny Hirsch Excellence in Sports Broadcasting Award presented to Broadcaster Joe Rose.
