On Friday October 5, 2012, the Greenville Police Department Police Athletic League (PAL) is teaming up with former ECU Football Star and NFL New England Patriots running back, Tony Collins, to launch the inaugural TONY COLLINS -- PAL CELEBRITY GOLF TOURNAMENT at Ironwood Golf & Country Club.
This charity event will raise money for the Greenville PAL program and the Tony Collins Foundation.

On Thursday October 4, The City Hotel & Bistro will host the Celebrity Dinner & Auction, while participants can watch the ECU v UCF football game.
Celebrity NFL football players who will join Tony Collins for this event include Irving Fryar, Stanley Morgan, and Reggie Dupard from the New England Patriots; Reggie Branch from the Washington Redskins; Howard Stevens from the original Baltimore Colts; Vinson Smith from the Dallas Cowboys; and Doug Smith from the Houston Oilers.
