The events and participants lined up thus far are sure to make for a great weekend,” said Benjamin Haas, Lombardi Golf Classic chairman and VLCF board member. “The health of our sponsors, celebrities and volunteers are very important to us, so we are excited we can fight against cancer in-person again.”
