Peachtree Christian Hospice (PCH), a premier general inpatient hospice center located in Duluth, is hosting its 13th Annual Golf Classic in loving memory of PCH co-founder, William N. "Bill" Todd, Sr., who passed away earlier this year.

This year's Golf Classic, scheduled for Oct. 22 at St. Ives Country Club in Johns Creek will have three prominent Gwinnett County celebrities: Dewey McClain, Brian Finneran, and Cole Hudgens helping and supporting the event. McClain and Finneran are serving as the 2013 Honorary Co-Chairmen and Hudgens is the 2013 Team Captain of the tournament.

McClain is a former Atlanta Falcons and United States Football League (USFL) player, and is currently the president of the Atlanta-North Georgia Labor Council. He has also just announced his candidacy for Georgia State House District 100 in Gwinnett County.

Finneran is a former Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles player. He is currently the Co-Host of The Front Row 9-12 noon, 680 The Fan / 93.7 FM – WCNN-AM Atlanta.

Hudgens is the grandson of the renowned developer and philanthropist, D. Scott Hudgens, Jr., who was also the sole benefactor of Peachtree Christian Hospice.

The event promises to be another tremendous success which begins at 10:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast, warm-up at the range, and lunch. The tournament, in the format of select drive, two best balls of the foursome, will begin at 1 p.m. Golfers will enjoy an “After-Golf Par-tee” to enjoy wines, an array of hors d'oeuvres, a live auction of spectacular items, and a vast selection of prizes and giveaways.
