He was joined by Alan Thicke, Kenny Walker and Dave Webber at the annual Spirit of Courage Celebrity Golf Tournament. The tournament benefited the Jennie Edmundson Hospital’s Charitable Cancer Fund. And that’s just one of many recent–and upcoming–celebrity charity events…

    I just wanted to mention that Alice Cooper is a long time resident of the Phoenix metro area and is well known around here for all the charity work he does and for his love of all sports. He’s known for his love of golf and has done some funny commercials here that involve him being in a golf cart.

    Thanks to Alice for all of his charity work.

    Wow, thanks Judith! That’s pretty awesome about Alice Cooper. I never would have guessed he played golf–but then, I’m not a golf fan but am a bit of a Cooper one, so maybe I just made that disconnection somehow. ;-)
