"Lorenzo Williams & Friends Celebrity Weekend"
On July 12-July 13, 2013, Lorenzo “ZO” Williams will bring back his pack of former Tiger greats to Springfield to host the 4th annual “Lorenzo Williams & Friends Celebrity Weekend” to host the 4th annual "Lorenzo Williams & Friends Celebrity Weekend Charity Weekend". This exclusive, first-class event weekend will once again be highlighted by several former Missouri Tiger football alumni currently playing in the NFL, many current Tiger football players, members of the Missouri Tiger cheerleading squad, and more!
In addition to everything that has made “The ZO” successful in the past, 2013 will feature some brand NEW features to enhance the weekend's appeal. New additions in 2013 include a 'Celebrity All-Star Basketball Game' and the golf tournament has been moved to the beautiful links at Twin Oaks Country Club. In addition, former NFL greats like Art Still and Neal Smith will be in town to be a part of the activities!
Because of the overwhelming commitment to the weekend by former and current Tigers, event activities and sponsorships sell out fast! The "Lorenzo Williams & Friends Celebrity Weekend" is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for charities and programs that directly impact youth in our community. 100% of all tournament proceeds are distributed to charitable organizations. To date, more than $115,000 has been raised to benefit local organizations and programs.
