This month New York Knicks All-Star John Starks hosted his annual Celebrity Golf Outing at Tamarack Country Club.

“Thank you all so much for being here,” told the NBA legend to attendees on the gorgeous day in Connecticut after rounds were completed.

At a sit-down banquet guests took time to hear inspiring speeches from former scholarship recipients and to take part in an exciting live auction to benefit future students endeavors.

The foundation awards academic scholarships to students from various New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Tulsa, OK area high schools. 3-point Scholarship recipients are selected based upon financial need, exemplary academic achievement and a significant commitment to community service.
