Join us on June 23 & 24, 2024 for the Big Daddy Celebrity Golf Classic on Long Island, hosted by Rich "Big Daddy" Salgado. Since 2010, this charity golf tournament has gained the attention of media and supporters worldwide.

As a volunteer for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital and an advocate and huge supporter of its mission, Mr. Salgado used his network of household names to raise funds and awareness for the kids at St Jude.

For the first year ever, Big Daddy Celebrity Golf Classic has joined forces with ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude, to co-produce this event. 

All proceeds from this event benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.
