St. Petersburg, Fl – Golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez is known for his sense of humor and love of kids and both will come into play during his annual Charity Classic on November 13 and 14. The golf tournament and dinner are a fundraiser for the Chi Chi Rodriguez Academy in Clearwater.

The Academy is a drop-out prevention school for students in 4th through 8th grade. “It benefits children who are socially and academically behind,” explains Cary Stiff from the Chi Chi Rodriguez Foundation. “So we’re hoping that all of Clearwater comes out and supports us.”

There are opening for a few more foursomes in the two-day tournament. For more information on the Charity Classic click here.

Rodriguez will be celebrating his birthday during the Charity Classic. “He is an energetic 81-year-old and as we all know, he loves kids,” says Stiff.
