NBA Coverage of the Jerry Colangelo Basketball Hall of Fame Golf Classic
On September 19-20, 2012, the Wigwam Resort welcomed the inaugural Jerry Colangelo Basketball Hall of Fame Golf Classic to its courses in a successful effort to raise funds for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. The charity event provided a unique opportunity for golfers to play across the three Wigwam courses with a Hall of Famer, former professional athlete, or celebrity.
Joining Jerry Colangelo in support of the Hall of Fame were Alvan Adams, Wayne Embry, Bob Lanier, and over 60 more professional athletes, Hall of Fame recipients, and celebrities. Special events spanned the two day tournament and included a pairings dinner, a basketball memorabilia auction, and a special dedication to Members of the 2012 USA Basketball Men’s team. In all, the Golf Classic raised over $300,000 for the Naismith Hall of Fame.
