Guy Fieri is money! And I mean that in the financial sense of the word. Charity is one topic about which I find myself writing more frequently than just about anything else, besides his shows.
The Jack Levar Rotary Foundation Scholarship Golf Tournament is an all-day event, with golf, dinner and a live auction. The event is scheduled for Friday, May 7, 2010 at the Oakmont Golf Club (website) in Santa Rosa, CA. Golfers should arrive at noon for a t-off at 1:00 p.m. Dinner/auction guests can arrive by 5:00 p.m.
Join Guy Fieri, Maverick Media, the Santa Rosa Rotary, Oakmont golfers and friends for a wonderful day of golf, food, drink and live auction items to support scholarships for college kids in marketing / advertising, culinary arts and sports.
Guy Fieri is set to join at dinner and emcee the live auction.
Interested parties are asked to please reserve either your dinner ticket or your foursome by April 15, 2010. Contact Kim Murphy (707) 539-1077 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In the months following Guy Fieri's winning the Next Food Network Star season 2, Guy asked long-time friend, Jack Levar, to be his manager and assistant. Levar was a seasoned advertising and promotional executive, member of the Rotary Club and an avid golfer. Levar died in late 2007; he was 65.
"Jack was a great leader and mentor and business adviser. He was always my coach ... the principles and things he gave me about interacting with people in this industry, the pitfalls, sticking to your word, all this stuff," Fieri said.
A scholarship fund in his name was set up through the Santa Rosa Rotary.
With the help of Guy Fieri, Linda Levar, Maverick Media, his Oakmont Golf buddies and Santa Rosa Rotary help us support educating college age children pursue careers in Marketing/Advertising, the Culinary Arts and Sports.
Please join us for our 2nd Annual event, filled with golf, great food, our wild host and fellow Rotarian, Guy Fieri, May 7th.
Limited space available; first come, first reserved.
