The Oakland Raiders 10th annual Biletnikoff Golf Tournament a success


The Oakland Raiders held its annual Biletnikoff Foundation golf tournament Monday. The turnout was amazing, with many members of the Raiders family as well as various celebrities showing up to support the cause.

Players who attended were:

Daryle Lamonica, Cliff Branch, James Lofton, Mike Haynes, Willie Gault, Tim Brown, Raymond Chester, Rod Martin, Rod Woodson, Barry Sims, Lincoln Kennedy, Dwight Clark, Eric Wright, Dwight Hicks, Jerry Porter, George Atkinson, Mel Renfro, Steve Wisniewski, Ted Hendricks, Mervyn Fernandez, Vance Mueller and Carl Eller.

In addition, coaches Tom Flores and Jim Fassel made appearances.

In addition to players and coaching staff, various other celebrities came to play such as Ryan Merriman, Debbe Dunning, Paula Trickey, JT the Brick and Jeff Brehaut to name a few.

The golf tournament is in support of the Biletnikoff Foundation, a foundation created in memory of for former player Biletnikoff’s daughter who was tragically murdered. All proceeds go to help troubled youth realize their full potential and learn to love life.

Biletnikoff was proud of the turnout this year:

“We have such a good response from everybody coming out and it keeps growing every year. We’re putting together a house in Loomis. There’s a rehab program up there for teenagers. They house girls and boys. We’re taking over one of the houses and we got a bunch of people together and they’re going to gut the whole house and re-do the whole house. The response we’ve gotten from guys to donate materials and time has been unbelievable.”
