Annual VCF Golf Tournament Is Today At Rush Creek

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 8, 2011 – 6:49 am

The Vikings will host their annual golf tournament today at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove to benefit the Vikings Children’s Fund (VCF). The sold-out event will feature the entire 2011 Vikings coaching staff, Vikings executives, Vikings alumni, Viktor the Viking and the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the VCF.

The tournament is scheduled for an 11:30 a.m. shotgun start followed by an awards ceremony with comments from Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier. The event is not open to the public. KFAN Radio will broadcast from the tournament from noon to 6:30 p.m.

Prior to the VCF Tournament, Vikings Director of Public Relations Bob Hagan and his staff will host their 3rd annual media challenge at Rush Creek as teams comprised of individuals from various media outlets compete in their own tournament. That event begins at approximately 8:00.

I’ll be participating in the media challenge this morning and then I’ll be covering the VCF golf tournament immediately after, so there won’t be any updates until later this afternoon.

Since its inception in 1978, the Viking Children’s Fund has raised more than $9 million, with over $4.9 million supporting research at the University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics.

    I feel bad that the current vikes can’t participate….this is for charity…This lockout doesn’t bode well for a season or a Vking stadium. It sucks!!!!

    Funny, in 33 years this charity received $9 million in donations from the Vikings. Wow. How much did they pay Favre in two years? How much do they want for a stadium to throw and catch? Come on Sue, get a dose or reality.

    Really Titus? maybe you should get a little dose of reality. How much did you put forward out of your pocket to go to any charity. Oh and by the way, that 9 million is how much this event has raised, not how much the Vikings give to charities.
