(St. Louis, April 27, 2012) – For the third consecutive year, St. Louis Rams coaches, players, and executive staff will partake in the Greater Missouri March of Dimes Challenge for Champions golf tournament, scheduled for Monday, May 21, at Boone Valley Golf Club.

The annual event is expected to raise over $150,000 to help March of Dimes efforts to give all babies a chance to be born healthy.

Each foursome in the Challenge for Champions will have a member of the Rams family participating. The team’s contingent will be led by Head Coach Jeff Fisher, Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff, and select Rams Players. Foursomes will draft their favorite player or coach to their team by making bids on prior to the tournament.

The tournament is sanctioned by the Metropolitan Amateur Golf Association. It begins with a shotgun start at 10:30 am, and will feature “longest drive” and “closest to the pin” competitions. The event concludes with a live auction featuring unique auction items and experiences that will make sports fans drool.

The Challenge for Champions is co-chaired by Bob O’Loughlin, Chairman and CEO of Lodging Hospitality Management and Kevin Demoff, executive vice president of football operations/chief operating officer of the St. Louis Rams.
