On May 16, students from Belmont’s School of Physical Therapy again volunteered for the Annual Tracy Lawrence Mission Possible Celebrity Golf Shootout to benefit the Nashville Rescue Mission.
Students, along with faculty advisors Mike Voight, Pat Sells and Chris Wolfe, arrived early in the morning to help set up the guest registration area and prepare for the on-course stations. Shortly thereafter, 34 teams of golfers and more than 40 celebrities from stage and screen began arriving for a day of golf, music and fellowship.
During the event, many of the students served as marshals / witnesses for various on-course challenges that included cars, trucks and boats for a hole in one as well as a final shootout for $100,000 in cash. As the day began to finished up, music started with an informal acoustic concert given by the various musical celebrities who had participated during the day.
At the end of the day, the real winner of the day was the Nashville Rescue Mission as approximately $500,0000 was raised. Tournament Host Tracey Lawrence publicly praised the students and personally thanked them for their help in making this event a success and have already begun planning for a bigger and better event next year.
