Brian Gay and Diamond Resorts:
In 2013, Brian Gay offered to lend his name to the inaugural Diamond Resorts golf tournament, the Brian Gay Invitational. The event featured more than 300 golfers, celebrities and spectators and included a celebrity-only tournament with a $40,000 purse. With an exciting and unique format, the tournament continued to grow over the years and in 2017, became the Diamond Resorts Invitational™ – a PGA TOUR Champions Challenge Season event national televised on Golf Channel. True to its roots, the three-day tournament also included the Brian Gay Pro-Am, which brought amateurs and celebrities together to raise money for charity. After the January 2018 tournament, the event had raised a total of more than $3.1 million for the Florida Hospital for Children.
