On September 20, the legendary Gary Player hosted the third annual Celebrity Chefs & Friends Golf and Tennis Tournament benefiting City Harvest at the Alpine Country Club in Demarest, New Jersey. Golf foursomes were joined by a fifth player—a chef, celebrity, or sports personality. Chefs also joined players on the tennis courts. Throughout the day, golfers and tennis players enjoyed an incredible array of celebrity chef bites and specialty cocktails on the course, on the courts, and at the evening walk-around tasting reception.

The tournament raised enough to provide nearly 850,000 meals to New Yorkers in need.
