Celebrity golf classic set for Aug. 6-7

The Elkhorn Golf Course will host this year's YMCA Celebrity Classic golf tournament Sunday and Monday, Aug. 6-7.

Besides golf, the event will feature an elegant dinner, an auction and celebrity entertainment on the grounds of the Trail Creek Cabin in Sun Valley.

Proceeds from the event help support the Wood River Community YMCA, which is currently being constructed in Ketchum at the corner of Warm Springs and Saddle roads. The 84,000-square-foot facility will house a swimming pool, ice rink, fitness center, climbing wall and gymnasium.

The Celebrity Classic will feature foursomes accompanied by a celebrity.

Past celebrity participants have included actors Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks and Jamie Lee Curtis, actor-turned-California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, ski racer Picabo Street, hockey star Jeremy Roenick, actor-author Mariel Hemingway, actor Tom Poston, actor-comedian Kevin Nealon, and musician Peter Cetera.
