CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Hard to fly under the radar with a field like this, but Joe Burrow managed it on the links Monday afternoon.

Burrow hosted the inaugural Joe Burrow Foundation Golf Invitational at Coldstream Country Club.

The sold-out field raised nearly $1 million for Burrow’s foundation, which aims to help families struggling to make ends meet by giving them resources to address youth mental health and food insecurity.

Current Bengals coaches and staff joined, including head coach Zac Taylor, offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo, special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons, quarterbacks coach Dan Pitcher, assistant quarterbacks coach Brad Kragthorpe, chief of coaching staff Doug Rosfeld and data analyst Sam Francis.

Bengals running back Joe Mixon, offensive tackle Orlando Brown, center Ted Karras and defensive end Sam Hubbard joined for a post-party celebration, where nearly $500,000 was raised from a live and silent auction. Cincinnati-native and Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer hosted the auction.

Some other high-profile golfers joined the event:

  • LSU head football coach Brian Kelly;
  • ESPN commentator Kirk Herbstreit;
  • NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz;
  • Former Bengals quarterback Kenny Anderson;
  • Former Bengals kicker Jim Breech;
  • Former Bengals safety David Fulcher
  • Bengals broadcasters Dan Hoard and Dave Lapham
  • Hall of Fame Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman; and
  • Reds Hall of Famer George Foster.

The Joe Burrow Foundation Golf Invitational was presented by Gravity Diagnostics, Encore Technologies and Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment, and was hosted by Burrow’s parents, Jimmy and Robin.

The Joe Burrow Foundation’s “From the Bayou to Greater Cincinnati: Let’s Do Good” campaign runs through Tuesday.

The campaign pits fans from Cincinnati against those from Louisiana with proceeds benefiting the foundation. Donate by purchasing select Burrow-themed apparel from Ohio-based Where I’m From Here.
