NFL Hall of Famers Marcus Allen, Marshall Faulk and Tim Brown, MLB star and Cy Young winner Vida Blue, along with Ron Rivera, Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers, and downhill ski racer Daron Rahlves participated in the celebrity tournament that is the signature fundraiser for the Gene Upshaw Memorial Fund at the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation.

Major Sponsors Schaffer’s Mill, NFL Foundation, Professional Athletes Foundation, Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe, Aon Hewitt, NEPC and Cigna played an instrumental role in raising a net total of $238,500.
