FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State Quarterback Club is holding its annual golf tournament and fundraiser. For the second year, the event is called the Dan Brown Memorial Golf Tournament in memory of Fresno State's former defensive coordinator who died in March 2009 at the age of 50.

Brown, an avid golfer, coordinated the QB Club tournament for many years.

The tournament will be held June 7 at Fort Washington Country Club and there will be morning and afternoon flights in a shotgun format. The cost for the event is $250 per player and a team foursome is $1,000. The Bulldog coaching staff will be playing in the tournament and will join all of the players for dinner at 5:30 p.m. There will be great tee prizes and awards for the winners.

Brown battled brain cancer since the summer of 2007, yet remained an inspiration to his fellow staff member and student-athletes as he coached his final two seasons fighting through treacherous medical treatments and incredible pain. Brown never allowed his illness to be a distraction, working everyday with an incredibly positive attitude and never wanting to be the center of attention.

The proceeds from the event will help pay for the education for Brown's children. Dan and Mindy Brown have six children: Korissa, Tara, Larry, Eric, Travis, and Jordan, and two grandchildren.

RSVPs can me made now and all payments must be made by May 18.

For more information or to reserve a spot in the tournament contact Kirk Linn (559) 313-0422 or via EMAIL or complete the entry form and return with payment to the Bulldog Foundation Office.
