Photos: 2013 Jim Kelly Celebrity Golf Classic

The Jim Kelly Celebrity Golf Classic was held at Terry Hills Golf Course today and as usual, a group of Batavia residents were positioned near the ninth fairway with free brownies for the golfers.

Prior to the tee-off, Kelly announced that he has cancer in his upper jaw.

Kelly told the Buffalo News that cancer is just another challenge on life's rollercoaster.

“I know I’ll beat it," he said.

The event raises money for the Kelly for Kids Foundation. Kelly for Kids serves disadvantaged and disabled youth in WNY. Past receiptents of funds have been The Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation and Community Action of Orleans & Genesee.

A terrific charity, a terrific golf course, and a cold lousy morning. Figures!! But I am sure as in years past there was enough fuel on the fire too make it not so cold. The foursomes(some fivesomes)pay a lot of money to play in this private event. No public.
It is (or was) held in conjunction with other events in Buffalo over the weekend. I believe they have fundraisers, and a black tie gala on Saturday Night. I personally wish Jim and family well, they have been through so much already, I hope our best wishes and prayers can help make the time ahead go better.

And oh by the way...., There are also sacrifices from Terry Hills Golfers, League Players, and employes that often go un-noticed. They should be thanked as well.
