Neighborhood Longhorns Program Celebrity Golf Classic

H-E-B and The Neighborhood Longhorns Program Advisory Board are pleased to host the 20th Annual Neighborhood Longhorns Program Celebrity Golf Classic June 3-4, 2012. This year’s event will be held at the University of Texas Golf Club, located just a few miles west of downtown Austin, off Highway 620.

This tradition continues to honor those who have made a positive impact in the community. This year,
we celebrate UT’s former great Cory Redding. Cory Redding played for The University of Texas football team from 1999-2002. Cory has been in the NFL since 2002 and has played for the Lions, Seahawks, Ravens and now plays for the Indianapolis Colts. It is sure to be an exciting night and a beautiful day of golf, but most importantly by participating, you are providing economically disadvantaged youth with the resources to build a strong academic future. We hope to see you at this year’s Celebrity Golf Classic.

All proceeds benefit The Neighborhood Longhorns Program

For the fifth consecutive year, the tournament benefits UT's Neighborhood Longhorns Program, and during that time, more than $200,000 have been raised by NAPA to benefit the youth in our community.

Once again, the funds will be used to support NLP, the educational incentives program started by UT Athletics for Men and Women in 1991. The NLP works with schools in surrounding communities to improve academic performance. Now under The Division of Diversity and Community Engagement, the
NLP continues to be The University of Texas‟ premier educational outreach program for youth in grades 2-8 and serves 30 sites and over 5,000 youth in the Austin area.

Many of UT coaches currently assist The Neighborhood Longhorns Program with Educational Programs like Coach G’s Hook ‘Em on Reading Program, Coach Clark’s D.I.R.T. Leadership Program, Augie’s Grand Slam Reading Program, Coach Barnes Hooked on Health program. These programs have created opportunities for NLP participants who succeed in the classroom to experience The University of Texas.
