“Friday Night Lights” actors Kyle Chandler and Brad Leland recently hosted The Beyond the Lights Celebrity Golf Classic, which helped raise over $200,000 at its 4th Annual event with net proceeds benefitting Gridiron Heroes Spinal Cord Injury Foundation and The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. Founded by Kyle Chandler, Brad Leland and “Friday Night Lights” camera operator Heather Page, the tournaments and gala raise funds for charities that help those with spinal cord injuries.
Other celebrities in attendance at The Beyond the Lights Celebrity Golf Classic included actors Scott Porter, Taylor Kitsch, Jesse Plemons, Dallas Cowboys coach Dave Campo and player Terence Newman and Rex Linn from “CSI Miami”. Each successive year the tournament has increased their funds raised.
Event Director, Heather Page, stated, “That the TV series was coming to an end made the 2011 event seem bittersweet at first. We weren’t sure if we’d continue on beyond the length of the show, but this year’s event proves that support for our efforts to help these spinal cord injury charities continues to grow. So, we’re looking forward to planning next year’s tournament and keeping Beyond the Lights an event that people can look forward to every year.”
