Candace Cameron Bure, Jessie James Decker, Trevor Lawrence, and Shawn Johnson East were among the celebrities that turned out this past weekend for Tim Tebow’s 12th annual Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic. Over the years, the event has raised money for the different outreaches that the Tim Tebow Foundation supports.
“God is good,” said Tim Tebow on his Instagram page. “There’s so much to be grateful for after [the] 12th annual @timtebowfoundation Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic. All the celebrities who came and loved on our kids and our family — Thank you, the way you selflessly serve alongside us is so encouraging! I’m so grateful for every one of you!”
“We had a beautiful weekend in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL supporting @timtebowfoundation,” said Candace Cameron Bure on Instagram. “The work Tim and Demi are doing to lift up the most vulnerable is so important and beautiful. Thank you @timtebow @demitebow for including us to help make a difference .”
Tim Tebow Foundation: Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic
Tim Tebow started his foundation in 2010 “to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.” It flows directly from his belief that followers of Jesus are called to serve others.
The Tim Tebow Foundation fights human trafficking, serves orphans, and supports children who have significant medical needs. It also serves children with special needs and is known for its annual Night to Shine event, a prom night for children with special needs where every attendee is celebrated and crowned king and queen. In February, the first in-person Night to Shine events were held since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
The Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic traditionally begins with the gala on Friday evening and the Golf Classic on Saturday. “What an incredible 24hrs,” singer and author Jessie James Decker posted on Instagram. “Thank you to @timtebowfoundation @demitebow @timtebow and their wonderful team for having us❤️ please learn about their foundation and how you can help.”
One photo shared by Candace Cameron Bure showed her posing with her husband, Valeri Bure, along with Decker and her husband, Eric Decker, and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson East and her husband, Andrew East. Eric Decker and Andrew East are former NFL players, and Valeri Bure is a former NHL player.
Tim Tebow’s wife, Demi-Leigh, who was the 2017 Miss Universe and who has attended the gala in the past, played in the Golf Classic for the first time. She practiced leading up to the event and made an impressive shot at the 17th hole.
