On Monday, May 2nd at the University of Louisville Golf Club, former Card and retired NFL player, Jamon Brown held his 3rd annual J. Brown Foundation Golf Scramble presented by Kroger and the Kentucky Derby Festival.
Guests who played were greeting by the Louisville Ladybirds and the Cardinal Marching Band as they lined the sidewalk leading into the clubhouse. It really got the event off to a great spirited start.
Inside the clubhouse lunch was provided after the registration table where participants were given gifts from sponsors as a thank you for participating. There was also a silent auction with jerseys from NFL players and bottles of alcohol as well as plenty of signed memorabilia from Cards coaches, and many more.
The mission of the J. Brown Foundation is to impact the lives of those struggling with Poverty, Violence, and Youth Homelessness, and to improve upon the Education and Healthy Living issues that are typically prevalent in at risk areas, while influencing others to do the same.
Brown says “This empowerment center is near and dear to my heart. I want to leave a legacy in the community that help raise me and supported me throughout my career. This is my hometown and I want to make positive contributions for the betterment of the whole community, and it begins with the community I grew up in. I can’t thank everyone enough for your support.”
The J. Brown Foundation thanks the Kentucky Derby Festival of Events, Kroger, Delta Dental, Bluegrass Motorsport and Dan-O’s Seasoning. As well as the University of Louisville Alumni Association, Sociable Weaver Foundation and lastly its hole sponsors.
Here are some photos of the day and we hope to see you out there next year for the 4th annual scramble. Help Jamon make a change .
