CFL Hall of Famer Damon Allen to Appear at B'nai Brith Charity Golf Classic

TORONTO – Superstar quarterback Damon Allen, who combined to pass and rush for more yardage than any player in professional football history, will participate in the 4th Annual B'nai Brith Charity Golf Classic at the Club at Bond Head on Wed., June 12, 2019.

Allen, who established himself as one of the top quarterbacks in CFL history by leading three different teams to four Grey Cup championships during his 23-year career, is the latest high-profile celebrity to become engaged with B'nai Brith Canada.

"I'm honoured to be invited to the B'nai Brith Golf Classic and I'm looking forward to it on June 12," Allen said. "Should be a great day."

Allen joins an already star-studded class of celebrities attending the tournament, including NHL Hall of Famer Marcel Dionne, Canadian horse-racing legend Sandy Hawley, former NHL goaltender Mike Palmateer and former NHL forward Gary Leeman.

Only three spots remain available for golfers. To register, click here.
