The Third Annual Hank's Yanks Golf Classic promises a fun day of golf, celebrities and raising money for some great causes in the Bronx at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, designed by Jack Nicklaus. The tournament is an effort to raise money in support of Hank's Yanks Baseball Foundation 501(c)3.

The funds raised for Hank's Yanks will support both the baseball activities as well as the community outreach work of the outstanding young athletes involved with Hank's Yanks, the youth baseball teams backed by New York Yankee owner, Hank Steinbrenner. They are a dedicated bunch of kids that come from all walks of life and not only play at a high level of travel baseball, but also perform both individual and group community service projects throughout the year. Many come from tough areas, and baseball is a way to keep them going in the right direction.

The tournament, which will include a dinner and silent auction, will bring together elite business owners, celebrities, philantropists, dignitaries and athletes with a purpose to raise funds at a star-studded "Old New York" style golf tournament, at the famed Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point! The course sits on the east side of the Whitestone Bridge that connects Queens and the Bronx, just outside of the city, and is in the mix as the future site of both The Barclays and the US Open.
