Clay Aiken: Golfing for Inclusion

The first annual "Golfing for Inclusion" tournament and dinner was held at the Mirasol Country Club in Palm Beach,FL on January 7th 2008. There was plenty of food, drink,and golf lessons for beginners during the day and of course plenty of golfers teeing off and enjoying the perfect weather in good company.

Clay spent part of his day as Wayne Player's willing sidekick. Wayne used Clay to demonstrate proper stance and technique.




Clay spent the majority of the day going from group to group socializing, 'gator hunting and having his picture taken with the participants.

After the tournament the players and their guests enjoyed a cocktail party, dinner, an auction to benefit the Bubel/Aiken Foundation and entertainment by Clay. He sang an assortment of familiar songs such as "I Can't Make You Love Me","At This Moment","Get Here". "Love of My Life", "When a Man loves a Woman" and "Unchained Melody" to name a few. One of the most popular auction packages included dinner with Clay in NYC complete with Carriage ride and Spamalot tickets. It was so popular that it was expanded to 2 packages that went for $20,000 each. There were also professional golf packages and even a private poker lesson with Greg Raymer.

Clay got a little sun kissed but he looked great, sang beautifully and if this picture is any indication. It was a great day!

    Clay is such an inspiration!!! Always thinking of others before himself. Golfing for Inclusion is a wonderful idea. I hope they raised a lot of money and do it every year.

    You do have to admit, Clay does look flaming in those photos above at the golf deal. Come on, I'm the last person that wants him to be gay, but sheesh.
