On Saturday May 12 at TPC Craig Ranch Golf Course in McKinney, TX, our very own Pidgeon’s took First Place in the star-studded Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament. The foursome included David Pidgeon, President and CEO of Starpower, Steven Pidgeon, President and CEO of StarFloors Michael Pidgeon, CFO StarFloors and former Cowboy Tight End, Alfredo Roberts.
The Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational took place from May 11- 12, 2012 celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Dallas Cowboys’ 1992 Super Bowl Championship. The weekend consisted of a VIP Guest Reception, Reunion Dinner and Celebrity Poker Tournament followed by Saturdays Golf Tournament and Awards Ceremony.
During the weekend a live auction took place and Starpower generously donated a Dallas Cowboys Game Watching Experience with Emmitt Smith. What better way to watch an NFL game than with football legend and Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith. Emmitt will join the winner and 20 friends at your house or a Starpower location near you to watch the winner’s favorite team for the “homegating” experience of a lifetime.
Not only did Starpower generously donate an item for the live auction but the grand prize winner of the poker tournament walked away with a special Championship prize from Starpower. The winner received an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema. This projector puts the viewer in the middle of the action with blockbuster brightness and contrast!
It was a star-studded event with celebrities like Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Nancy Lieberman, Kenny Lofton, Barry Sanders, Jason Terry and many more participating in the weekend’s festivities.
The Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational is more than just a weekend celebration and golf; it is also about raising money for charity. Over the first two years of the golf tournament has helped raise $600,000 which will be used to further the mission of Pat Emmitt Smith Charities, which is a public charity that creates and funds unique educational experiences and enrichment opportunities for undeserved children.
Congratulations again to the Pidgeon’s and Alfredo Roberts for winning the golf tournament!
