ABOUT THE JIM “MUDCAT” GRANT ALL-STAR GOLF TOURNAMENT
The Jim “Mudcat” Grant All-Star Golf Tournament was established in 2002 by Security Mutual Life, The Broome County Urban League, and Jim “Mudcat” Grant together with his fellow members of The Black Aces—the African-American major league baseball pitchers who have won 20 or more games in a single season. The tournament proceeds help support the educational, recreational, wellness, and other programs offered by The Broome County Urban League, The Boys and Girls Clubs of Binghamton, and Catholic Charities of Broome County, as well as the food programs run by CHOW and Catholic Charities. In addition, a separate fundraising event is held during the tournament, with those proceeds being used to help support U.S. veterans, particularly homeless veterans in Broome County.
Each year, approximately 35 professional athletes and other celebrities come to Binghamton to participate in this tournament and to help support these organizations and their missions. In addition to participating in the tournament, the All-Star celebrities also take time to be part of a special awareness program for area youth.
