The Kevin Harvick Foundation announced today the date for the Second Annual Happy's Classic golf tournament and Happy's Hour party. On November 9, golfers and not-quite-golfers can roll up their sleeves and play in the unique, charity golf tournament. Located at The Links at RiverLakes Ranch Golf Club in Bakersfield, Calif., the second annual event will help raise funds to benefit and further the mission of the Kevin Harvick Foundation.
Not to be confused with your run of the mill tournament, those who play might find themselves being named "King of the Throne" in the longest drive competition, taking their chances on holes like "Pinball Putt" and "Back to the Beach" or even teeing off of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kevin Harvick's drive. While not everyone can win, one thing is guaranteed: those who participate are destined to have a good time.
"We decided to put a new swing on golf with the Happy's Classic this year," said Kevin Harvick Foundation co-founder Kevin Harvick. "Anybody can win this tournament and everyone will have fun but at the same time, support the Kevin Harvick Foundation which is so important to DeLana [Harvick] and I. We are very grateful to Advanced Distribution, Blackhole Technology, TapouT and KS Industries for all of their help in putting together this great event."
In addition to the golfing action, the winner of The Kevin Harvick Collegiate Scholarship will be announced at the tournament. The individual will receive a one-year full scholarship to California State University at Bakersfield.
Following the tournament, the fun continues with Happy's Hour presented by Advanced Distribution and Blackhole Technology at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace. The event will be highlighted by the comedy of Craig Shoemaker. Named Comedian of the Year by the American Comedy Awards on ABC, Shoemaker's half-hour Comedy Central special has been voted by viewers as one of the network's "Top 20" stand-up specials of all time. The comedian has also appeared on the big screen including the box office hit Scream 2.
Happy's Hour will also feature an autograph session with Harvick and an auction with items such as an electric guitar autographed by country music stars Alan Jackson, Chris Young and The Band Perry, a Phoenix International Raceway NASCAR Spring 2012 VIP Race Weekend Package for four, an electric guitar signed by the members of the band Lifehouse, Harvick race-used memorabilia including a firesuit, shoes, gloves and much more.
