August 13, 2010, North Myrtle Beach, S.C. – Following coverage of the PGA Championship for TNT and Turner Sports, award-winning journalist Jim Huber will welcome a cast of celebrities at the 3rd annual Know Your Score Links & Laughs Golf Tournament and Gala on August 28. Celebrities scheduled to appear include three-time Grammy winner Branford Marsalis, former NFL great Sterling Sharpe, former major league baseball player Tony Womack, former Boston Celtics great and 11-time NBA champion Sam Jones, NBA player Brevin Knight and College of Charleston head basketball coach Bobby Cremins. Huber is also this year’s national spokesperson for the Know Your Score – Fight Prostate Cancer campaign.

“We are very appreciative of Jim (Huber) and the other celebrities taking time out of their busy schedules to benefit such a worthy cause,” said Bill Golden, president of Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday. “From the golf to the comedy show to the amazing raffle prizes we have this year, it promises to be an incredible day of fun and evening of entertainment. Ultimately, we all wish to raise as much money as possible for the Know Your Score campaign, so we can assist in the fight to find a cure for prostate cancer.”

The Jack Nicklaus-designed Long Bay Club in North Myrtle Beach will host the celebrity golf event and an evening comedy show, live auction and gala will be held at Kingston Plantation. Proceeds from the events will benefit ZERO – The Project to End Prostate Cancer. Those interested in playing in the golf tournament, or purchasing sponsorships or tickets to the comedy show and gala should visit KnowYourScoreMB.com.

Raffle tickets are also available to purchase on the web site for 13 extravagant prizes including an all-expenses paid trip to South Africa including a safari experience. Raffle tickets are limited to the first 350 people. Some of the other prizes include a Steelers football weekend in Pittsburgh, two entries into the ESPN Radio “Mike & Mike Show” celebrity golf tournament featuring hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, four tickets to attend the PGA Tour Championship and an all-sports weekend in New York City including tickets to a Yankees versus Boston Red Sox baseball game and an NFL game between the Jets and Baltimore Ravens, among many others. Those purchasing raffle tickets do not have to be present at the drawing to win.

Since April of 2008, Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday has joined forces with ZERO and supported the annual campaign to fight prostate cancer. The Know Your Score campaign slogan refers to the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test given to men 50 years of age or older to help detect prostate cancer. A low score on the PSA test is good news and is the best screening tool currently available when used with the physical prostate exam, according to ZERO.

So far this year, more than $21,000 has been raised by the Know Your Score campaign to benefit ZERO – The Project to End Prostate Cancer. The Links & Laughs Know Your Score Golf Tournament and Gala is expected to raise more funds to allow the overall goal of $70,000 for the year to be achieved.
