Kenny G Donates Sax To Event Benefiting Pro Golfer

Kenny G is doing what he can to support a professional golfer whose life was tragically altered on Father’s Day. Golfer Chris Smith’s wife Beth, who was 42, was killed in an automobile accident in Indiana that also critically injured the couple's children, 16-year-old Abigail and 12-year-old Cameron. A benefit to support Smith will be held August 7th at the Legends of Indiana Golf Course in Franklin, Indiana.

Kenny, an avid golfer who has played with the pros at several Pro-Am tournaments, is one of the many celebrities donating items for auction.   He is giving a signed saxophone. Among others pledging items are golfers Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson and country music singer Kenny Chesney.

Beth Smith's funeral service will be held tomorrow (July 14th) in Peru, Indiana. To make a contribution, you can go to legendsofindiana.com. Smith, who has won five times on the Nationwide Tour and once on the PGA Tour, plans to skip the remainder of the 2009 season to be home with his children, who face extensive rehabilitation.
