The 11th Annual GTA Celebrity Golf Classic incorporates two days of activities designed to raise awareness and support for the invaluable Early Learning and After School programs at the Greater Trinity Academy (now Rise Up Academy). While we were unable to hold our tournament in 2020, and our tournament last year was scaled back, we are looking forward to being back fully this year
Along with our host Kenny Easley, former Seattle Seahawk and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, we are expecting a full slate of celebrities including Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinees Ronnie Lott, Eric Dickerson and Walter Jones. Other celebrities include Christian Okoye and local legends such as Randall Morris, Alonzo Mitz, Jordan Babineaux and Brian Hunter. And, as a very special guest, we have confirmed 3 time NBA Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkens will be joining us for a special Celebrity Event on Thursday eveningalong with Seattle Kraken General Manager, Mr. Tod Leiweke. They will be joining us for golf on Friday as well.
Additionally, we are fortunate to have Kenny’s teammate from UCLA, Larry Lee and the Back in the Day Band as our entertainment for the Thursday night concert! The band has played at numerous NFL events including Kenny Easley’s Enshrinement Party in 2017! For more information on Larry Lee and the Back in the Day Band, visit: http://larryleeband.com/
The Academy is comprised of children from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. Some of the children have experienced significant learning difficulties, but at the Rise Up Academy, we are committed to addressing the challenges any child faces.
Our school has served over 1,500 students in the greater Everett community during its first 23 years of operation. We want to double that number in the next ten years! Raising support is essential to help us achieve this goal.
Please join us in a celebration of community service and help us to keep the doors open for children who need a safe, structured educational environment with the confidence to say, “I Can Learn Anything!”
