ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla., Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Prizeo—the celebrity-based charitable fundraising platform —launched The Murray Bros. Caddyshack Experience with Bill Murray, which offers one lucky winner the opportunity to join the star and his five brothers to participate in their annual Charity Golf Tournament in St. Augustine, Florida.
In 2001, Bill Murray and his five brothers – Andy, Brian, Joel, John, and Ed – opened Murray Bros. Caddyshack at World Golf Village, home of the World Golf Hall of Fame, in St. Augustine, Florida. Along with the opening of the restaurant, the brothers created the Murray Bros. Caddyshack Charity Golf Tournament with the mission to partner with various charities to raise monies that provide medical services, educational programs, lifesaving equipment, and fundraising opportunities to better the lives in communities across the country.
"This is a time when I enjoy Florida's humidity and spend time with my brothers and friends for great golf, music and food," said Bill. "And we also manage to do some good things for people."
The winner of the experience will play golf with Bill Murray, as well as attend the VIP party upon arrival and the VIP concert and party following golf with Bill. The prize includes two nights in Florida and flights from anywhere in the world for two people.
