Annual Coach Blair Golf Classic

Registration for the Golf Classic ends April 27.Gary Blair, head coach of the Women's Basketball Team at Texas A&M, is not stranger to winning. But when hosts the 9th Annual Coach Gary Blair Charities Celebrity Golf Classic on Friday, May 4, it won't matter what place Blair's athletes finish that he will remember -- it's the pure joy of participating. Blair says the first time he placed a medal around a child's neck at the Special Olympics that he was hooked. It didn't matter if the child was receiving a 1st place medal or 6th, the joy he saw in their eyes was indescribable.

"It's called the Special Olympics because these kids are truly special," says Blair, who has been involved with the Special Olympics for more than 20 years.

Mayor Jason Bienski of Bryan and Mayor Nancy Berry of College Station have issued a joint proclamation in support of the exhibit and are calling all community members to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 19.

“The story told through this exhibit is important for people of all ages and backgrounds to understand,” Berry says. “The Spanish people are to be commended for allowing the safe passage of the Jewish people fleeing from the Holocaust.”
