Browns players and coaches grabbed their clubs and spent time Monday at Westwood Country Club for the 22nd annual Cleveland Browns Foundation golf tournament, presented by Key Private Bank and in association with University Hospitals and Direct Travel.

The outing raised money and awareness to benefit the Cleveland Browns Foundation’s “Stay in the Game! Keep Learning, Every Day Network,” a statewide initiative designed to promote the importance of school attendance and putting an end to chronic absenteeism. Head coach Kevin Stefanski, along with assistant coaches and the majority of Cleveland players for the voluntary offseason program, joined Browns alumni and other guests for a game on a hot, cloudy afternoon. at Rocky River.

“What we’re going to do here is have fun first,” Stefanski said addressing the crowd before the start of the round. “Number two, we’re going to raise a lot of money. What we’re raising this money for is so important to our community. We’ve talked to our players about the importance of giving back. The money we’re able to raise here for the Browns Foundation is going to have a huge impact on our community.”

The golf tournament is the Browns Foundation’s oldest and most successful fundraiser, generating more than $3.2 million since its inception through the collaboration of the Browns, team partners and many generous supporters. The money was raised through sponsors, auctions and fun games on the course and will be funneled to the Browns Foundation – and specifically the “Stay in the Game!” Network, which was established in 2019 and encompasses 17 districts and 150,000 students across Ohio. The funding will help provide resources and opportunities for Ohio students/youth to enable them to succeed and pursue their dreams.
