THE EDDIE JOHNSON MEMORIAL
1ST ANNUAL EDDIE JOHNSON MEMORIAL GOLF CLASSIC
CLEVELAND – As most of you may know, our dear family member, teammate and friend, Eddie "The Assassin'" Johnson succumbed to colon cancer on January 21, 2003. Per Eddie's request, we have formed the Eddie Johnson Memorial Foundation.
The Eddie Johnson Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to provide assistance to the youth of Northeastern Ohio by offering medical financial support, football development and convalescence visits.
Our first benefit will be the Eddie Johnson Memorial Golf Classic, presented by Bernie's Insider's and Outback Steakhouse, Friday, September 19, 2003at Springvale Golf Course in North Olmsted, Ohio. The day will include golf and networking with your favorite sports celebrities such as Bernie Kosar, Reggie Langhorne, Cleo Miller and Felix Wright, barbecue luncheon provided by Outback Steakhouse, beverages, prizes and silent auction.
"Eddie was very clear to his friends regarding what he wanted us to do to carry on his memory" says Reggie Langhorne, Chairman of the Board of Directors. "We are very aware of what issues were close to Eddie's heart. With that in mind, we have chosen 14-year old Corey Fritz who is in need of a heart transplant to be the primary beneficiary of this event".
Please plan to join us for what is sure to be a very memorable occasion. For more information, please call (216) 447-1330 or visit our website at www.berniesinsiders.com.
