Jim Brown, one of NFL’s top three players of all time was just on the banks of Lake Conroe announcing a celebrity golf tournament to benefit his charity, The Amer-I-Can Foundation. The Jim Brown Celebrity Golf Tournament will take place in September on the grounds of the $130 million renovated La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa, a four-star Texas resort located less than an hour north of downtown Houston.
Aside from announcing the celebrity golf tournament, Jim made sure to reach out to the local community while in Texas. Members of the Montgomery High School football team had the privilege to listen to the legendary, three-time NFL MVP stress the importance of teamwork. “When you play sports, there is something that always prevails,” he said. “Every player needs the full effort of each and every person in a team sport — everybody has a value. The smallest contribution can be what helps a person win a championship.”
The Amer-I -Can Foundation for Social Change, Inc. was founded in 1988 by Jim Brown upon the belief that self-esteem is the key to improving one’s decision-making process and achieving success through self-determination. The Amer-I-Can Life Skills Training program has been successfully implemented in prisons, jails, juvenile probation camps, middle schools, high schools, colleges, universities, businesses and communities.
Perfect for families, couples, socialites and outdoor adventurers, La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa is Houston’s playground featuring countless enticing activities. Whether sport fishing and navigating a personal sailboat on Lake Conroe, floating down the lazy river at the Aqua Park or teeing off on the 18-hole golf course, guests of all ages are engaged in building lifelong memories together. Balancing outdoor adventure with world-class sophistication, the AAA Four Diamond resort features Texas’ only Michelin-starred chef serving French delicacies at the water front Chez Roux restaurant as well as global spa treatments at the renowned SpaTerre.
