Golfing is great but when you can golf with the greats it’s even better. The Chelsey Ebert Celebrity Weekend is an opportunity to hang out with local sports celebrities, get autographs and just have a great time all to raise money for a very worthy cause. It all starts on Friday night with a dinner and auction and ends on Saturday with a golf tournament for fun and bragging rights. With local sports celebrities like Jake Locker and with the help of Seattle Seahawk, Sam Adkins (retired) we have been able to bring numerous sports celebrities in to support this event. From Jim Zorn to Lenny Wilkins, you never know who you might be dinning or golfing with.
Chelsey was a Ferndale graduate who had a wish and that wish was to give scholarships to two Ferndale high school girl’s in sports in her name. When Chelsey died in 2008, her family kept their promise and not only have raised enough money to support Ferndale girls but now every school in Whatcom County gets two scholarships every year providing almost 100 scholarships in just eight short years. And with the success of this event they also provide support to several nonprofits, support local law enforcement and fire fighters, Children’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital, and many more worthy organizations.
