Make a Gift
We know you were looking forward to the Roger Maris All Star Week Sports Clinics and Golf Tournament and thank you for your understanding that for the health and well-being of our community we need to postpone our event. The lessons that we’re learning from the countries where COVID-19 first spread, are that social distancing and responsible event management are key to reducing the overall number of infected persons and that by slowing the spread, we will protect the resources we have to manage the infection.
About Roger Maris
Legendary baseball player and hometown hero Roger Maris loved his community. While everyone else in the world knows Maris as the man who held the world record for major league single-season homeruns from 1961 to 1998, we know him as the man who gave back to his hometown in more ways than can be counted.
The Roger Maris Celebrity Golf Tournament began as a way to uplift his alma mater Shanley High School and raise money for local charities. Nearly four decades later, the tournament is one of the region’s premier events.
Although Maris lost his battle to non-Hodgkin lymphoma at age 51, his legacy lives on through this weeklong event and the lifesaving care provided at the Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center, named in his honor. Since opening its doors in 1990, the comprehensive cancer center has and continues to bring hope to those in and around our region.
