20 Years Of Penn State Coaches vs. Cancer Golf Tourney In Perspective

To get a feel for how long the charity event has been helping people and families who are dealing with cancer, we asked several celebs where they were two decades ago. Check it out.

The Penn State Coaches vs. Cancer Golf Tournament took place at the PSU Golf Courses on campus Friday, just like it does every spring around this time.

But there was an extra special feel for the 2016 event, as it marked the 20th anniversary of the first tournament back in 1996.

Since then, Penn State CVC has raised well over $2.5 million for the fight against cancer. In fact, organizers are hoping this year’s take pushes that total near or even past $3 million.

To put into perspective how long the tournament has been played — and how long it has been helping individuals and families who are dealing with cancer — we put a basic question to several of the celebrity golfers Friday:

“What were you doing 20 years ago?”

It is pretty cool to see their answers — which range from playing in the NBA finals to learning how to walk — and how it further helped them understand how much good this event has done for so many people over so many years.

Take a look.
