Belanger-Federico-Pitterich Foundation Agrees to Terms to Bring Celebrity Players Tour to Baltimore

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) February 5, 2006

The Belanger-Federico-Pitterich Foundation is thrilled to be joining forces to bring the Celebrity Players Tour to Baltimore to benefit lung cancer research at Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Cool Kids Campaign to benefit pediatric oncology patients.

A press conference will be held Wednesday, February 22, 2006 at 11:00am at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center to officially announce the Baltimore Celebrity Golf Classic. The press conference will be attended by Governor Ehrlich, William Donald Schaefer, Celebrity Players Tour President Nick Schmitz, CPT members Mickey Tettleton and Clark Gillies and Belanger-Federico-Pitterich Foundation Board Member Ken Singleton.

The Celebrity Players Tour was organized to provide a competitive format for athletes, entertainers, and other celebrities in an arena that was different than the field in which they became famous. Over the past 10 years the CPT and its events have raised over $ 20 million for charity. Nick Schmitz, President of the CPT states, “All of us at the Celebrity Players Tour are excited about having our first ever event in Baltimore. We plan on making the 2006 Baltimore Celebrity Golf Classic the first of many great events that we will have here over the years. We congratulate the Belanger-Federico-Pitterich Foundation for their commitment in making this event become a reality. It is our goal to assist the Foundation in raising as much money as possible to help in the fight against cancer.”

The Baltimore Celebrity Golf Classic will include 5 days of events and golf. These include a concert at Ram’s Head Live, a casino night, 2 days of celebrity/amateur golf and 2 days of tournament play for a $ 200,000 purse. Chris Federico states, “We look forward to providing a first class corporate hospitality event that showcases Maryland. This five day tournament will help our Foundation keep our commitment to raising funds for both lung cancer research and pediatric oncology patients through our Cool Kids Campaign.”

The Belanger-Federico-Pitterich Foundation was founded in 2004 by Robert Belanger and Christopher Federico after both men lost a parent to cancer. Rob Belanger lost his father, former Oriole shortstop Mark Belanger, to lung cancer in 1998. Chris Federico’s mother died of leukemia at Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1995 and Michael Pitterich’s brother lost his battle with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia at Hopkins in 1998.
