On the links, the golf balls levitated…and in the process, money was donated! On the first Friday in September of 2023, the 3rd Annual Roland Parrish Celebrity Golf Tournament was underway. Powered by the Dallas Stars Foundation, Texas A&M Commerce, and the Black McDonald’s Operators Association. Roland Parrish gathered a superb group of dignitaries, including Senator Royce West, Super Bowl Champions, Ed ‘Too Tall’ Jones, Russell Maryland, and Everson Walls. Teams competed to see who would bring home the trophy. Then, after the group play completed, Mr. Parrish continued his generosity through philanthropy. A donation of $50,000 was given to high school bands in the Dallas Independent School District. After lunch, a prize raffle concluded the day where patrons were gifted an assortment of autographed paraphernalia and once in a lifetime excursions. All of which raised funds for the Parrish Charitable Foundation.
The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation opened its application today for the 2024 Charley Pride Fellowship Program.
