Jimmy V Celebrity Golf Classic 2007

Here they come! This is the famous 18th hole on Course 2. Anthony said as they got to the tee box, an ESPN reporter informed them that they would be recorded by three different cameras during this hole and interviewed mid-way through. He said he started to worry about it with that much attention! :) It was so funny to see the crowds...who were there for the celebrities of course, but still funny because it completely felt like a "real" tournament (7500 spectators from what we were told!)! I was so proud to be out there following and supporting my man! :)

He really was the most down to earth, friendly guy!

Anybody remember President Logan from 24! I was so excited to get a picture with him. He even admitted the enjoyment he got out of playing the "bad" president! :) There were many other celebrities at the tournament but I wasn't interested in athletes and soap stars! I found the two men I was looking for and I'm excited to have pictures to prove it! :)
Anthony's colleague Janice, with President Logan...OK, his real name is Gregory Itzin but I know him as President Logan.
Stone was familiar with this hole and giving pointers, Anthony was glad to have the advice!
a lot of discussion about the best way to handle this hole!

The Stone Phillips Team...Anthony and his clients!
The final score board!

A group from Ft. Bragg started off the night singing Carolina, God Bless America, and An American Soldier. It was truly an amazing moment and your heart was full for what all the soldiers are doing for us!

All dressed up with a place to go! We had a great time at the Gala and Auction on Saturday night, although we were quite beat afterwards! We are in the phase of life where you eat at 5:30pm and go to bed at 10:30pm! We weren't served dinner until 8pm and weren't back in our room until after midnight! I'm not used to that! It was a wonderful time and so fun to spend it together!

You guys look great! It seems that you had a wonderful time, and who wouldn't at a place like that. It also looks as though everyone including grandparents had a special weekend. Isn't it great to get to do things like that, Especially when you know your kids are having an awesome time. Amanda

Wow - what an exciting weekend. I'll be sure to get Joe to look at the pics of Anthony swinging away. How exciting, I would have been star struck. I can't believe President Logan was there. Did he give you any hints about next season(even though he's a goner-right?). Glad you had so much fun, oh what I wouldn't give for a weekend away!

Linda Williams said...

I am so thrilled that you and Anthony had such a wonderful weekend! What a blessing in this world for Anthony to be back at the job he so loves....If you can call this weekend a JOB! Oh well, it's tough, but someone has to do it....

What an amazing weekend! I know you all had so much fun. I'm so jealous that you got to meet President Logan. You look so beautiful in the gala pictures! I love that dress. I'm so happy for you! What a treat to have a weekend like that for the two of you.

Jamie said...

What fun you guys must have had! How nice to get away without the kids and do something grown-up for once! You guys clean up really nice! :) Can't believe you met President Logan....I still get so mad when I think of what he did on the show. It's hard not to think of him as a mean man. Glad your trip was a success.

Adam and Nat said...

Wow, I am so impressed guys! I told Adam and he was serious about putting something on our blog about our friends meeting someone famous. :) Pinehurst is beautiful isn't it!? I've only seen the outside and you guys got to see the INSIDE. You are so cool. :)
