The 4th annual Donnie Shell Celebrity Golf Tournament took place at Champions Retreat
Super Bowl XIII and XIV champion, Shell is a native of Whitmire, S.C. and he and his celebrity friends have raised more than $175,00,000 since this tournament began four years ago. All of the proceeds go to academically gifted students, who cannot afford to attend South Carolina State Univiersity.
Shell hopes to one day get the scholarship endowed and that his legacy can touch many young students for years to come.
” I came from nine brothers and sisters and my parents could not afford to send me to college my goal is to get to raise over a half a million dollars and endow this scholarship and I’m competitve so I know when I get to half a million I’m going to want to get to a milion we want to leave a legacy and leaving a legacy means out living your life and when I’m physically gone that scholarship will always be there to help the young students, ” said Shell.
