BOARDMAN -- The Fifth annual Neil Kennedy Celebrity Golf Classic will have a new format this year.
The event, which will be held Monday at the Youngstown Country Club, begins with a dinner and sports auction Sunday at the Boardman Holiday Inn.
Many sports items and gift packages will be offered through silent and oral auctions.
Some of the items include a signed Sam McDowell Cleveland Indians uniform, a signed Willie Mays bat, a signed Jim Brown football, a signed Sugar Ray Leonard boxing glove and a signed Wayne Gretzky hockey puck.
Gift packages include a Cleveland Indians baseball package, golf vacations and miscellaneous travel and entertainment packages.
Monday, McDowell and other celebrity sports figures will join amateur golfers to play the Youngstown Country Club in a scramble format.
Proceeds go to the Neil Kennedy Recovery Clinic Dick Riley Fellowship Hall, which is home to over 25 NA and AA weekly meetings.
