2017 NFL Alumni Golf Classic 2017-06-06T12:23:09+00:00

TWO GREAT EVENTS. ONE GREAT CAUSE.

Thank you to every attendee, sponsor and volunteer for making the 15th annual Caring for Kids Banquet & Golf Classic a fun two days and a great success! A special thank you to KB Home,  Lexus of Austin & Lakeway and the NFL Alumni – Austin Chapter who helped raise nearly $340,000 to benefit child abuse victims.

During the banquet, Sanya Richards-Ross & Aaron Ross accepted the honor of Couple of the Year and spoke on the importance of passion, compassion and giving back to the community you love.

The next morning, more than 30 former NFL players partnered up with our team sponsors to compete for an all-expenses paid trip to the NFL Alumni’s 2018 Super Bowl of Golf Tournament in Las Vegas. Grand prize at the tournament went to the Austin Lanehart Electric & Lighting team, comprised of Greg Lanehart, Matt Fisher, Chelsea Lanehart, Lee Roy Johns and team captain/NFL Alumni member Al Matthews. The second place team was from Sherwin Williams with team captain Bruce Collie, third place went to Lone Star Paving and Bo Schobel, and Landart America came in fourth place with team captain Tony Franklin.

2017 COUPLE OF THE YEAR

SANYA RICHARDS-ROSS AND AARON ROSS

College sweethearts, Sanya Richards-Ross and Aaron Ross wed in 2010, becoming an unstoppable duo. Sanya is a 5-time Olympic medalist, winning Gold at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Olympics for the 4×400 meter relay. For the 400-meter race she took home Bronze in 2008 and later earned Gold at her final competing Olympics in 2012. After announcing her retirement at the 2016 Olympic Trials, Sanya joined the NBC Olympic Broadcasting team, where she provided the color commentating for all the sprinting events at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Aaron played cornerback for the University of Texas Longhorns from 2003 to 2006, winning the National Championship title in 2005 and the Jim Thorpe Award for the nation’s top Defensive Back in 2006. Aaron was drafted in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the New York Giants, and would continue on to win two Super Bowl championships with the franchise. Both Aaron and Sanya are currently entrepreneurs and community activists, striving to better the lives of the children through education and healthy lifestyles.
