Celebration Golf Club to host The Fat Guy's Golf for Kids Tournament Oct. 5

ORLANDO, Fla. – Celebration Golf Club in Osceola County will host The Fat Guy’s Golf for Kids Tournament Friday Oct. 5 to benefit the Threshold Center for Autism in Winter Park.

Kenny Nairn, club general manager and executive vice president of Celebration Golf Management, said the tournament will feature local celebrity “The Fat Guy” Dennis Salvagio, whose garrulous nature and raucous support of the NBA Orlando Magic basketball team made him a fixture at the O-rena for more than a decade.

Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. is sponsoring the tournament which will include 18 holes of championship golf, a continental breakfast, free golf shirt, sleeve of golf balls, lunch in the Celebration Clubhouse, complimentary beverages and a silent auction following the tourney.

Tournament director Michael Gibbons said Fields BMW in Winter Park will give away a BMW to the first golfer to score a hole-in-one during tournament play and Orlando Yahama Kawasaki will give away a motorcycle.

Other prizes include closest to the pin, longest drive and numerous raffle prizes, Gibbons said.

“Dennis Salvagio and Modern Plumbing have really come forward to make this tournament one of the biggest and best of the entire fall season,” Nairn said.
