The Second Annual Ben Roethlisberger Foundation Invitational took place on Monday at the beautiful Sewickley Heights Golf Club.
Well over 100 golfers, including teammate Brett Keisel and ESPN’s Merril Hoge, joined Ben on the course for a full day of golf and games to benefit his Foundation.
Proceeds from the Invitational benefit police and fire agencies throughout the country with K-9’s and rescue dogs, and Make-A-Wish.
Ben is participating in “Football Drive” – the objective of this pre-tournament game is to hit the Fathead AFC North defensive players with the golf ball!
Pre-tournament competitions, which included games such as the Quarterback Challenge, Football Drive, Hat Trick, Three Point Shootout, Roulette Golf, Blackjack, and a $5,000 Putt Challenge, and a $1 million dollar Shootout (165 yard shot) got the day started, and during the tournament golfers had the opportunity to try their hand at other competitions along the course, including Poker & Roulette Golf, a Men’s and Women’s Long Drive, the Straight Drive, and a TPC Sawgrass “Island Green” hole on the 17th.
Sponsors for the tournament included Apollo Jets; King Street Grille; PNC Bank; Cisco/Presidio and Summit Golf Brands – the company behind three of the golf industry’s leading brands: Fairway & Greene, EP Pro, and Zero Restriction.
We’ll have more photos and info from the Invitational soon!
