TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State University head men’s basketball coach Steve Robinson will host his second annual Steve Robinson Celebrity Golf Classic and Silent Auction and Reception on May 20 and 21 at the Killearn Country Club. Robinson, the fourth-year Seminole head coach, guided his team to a victory over then No. 17-ranked and 2001 Final Four participant Maryland and coached Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie Team selection Michael Joiner during the 2001 season.
Former Seminole football and basketball standout Brad Johnson and former Seminole basketball player Irving Thomas as well as numerous other local and national sports celebrities are scheduled to participate.
Portions of the proceeds raised will go to provide assistance to Aubrey Boyd, a former Seminole basketball player who is partially paralyzed following a tragic accident.
The golf event begins on May 21 with a 9:00 a.m. shotgun start at the Killearn Country Club for the scramble (select-a-shot) format. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. A lunch and awards ceremony will follow the exciting round of golf on one of the area’s most challenging and most picturesque courses.
The golf event will be preceded by a silent auction and reception 6:00 p.m. on May 20 at the Silver Slipper Restaurant in Tallahassee. Many attractive items will be available and supporters of the men’s basketball program will have the opportunity to meet, mix and mingle with the many celebrities in attendance.
