Each summer The Showcase brings a who’s who of golf-loving celebrities to Coeur d’Alene to swing their clubs for a great cause: raising money to battle cancer via the Community Cancer Fund. But The Showcase is no mere private soiree; the public is invited to get out on the course with the famous faces and watch them hack their way around the beautiful Coeur d’Alene Resort course. Among the celebs playing this year are local Stanley Cup hero Tyler Johnson, NFL Hall of Famers Marcus Allen and Eric Dickerson, Gonzaga legend Adam Morrison and men’s basketball coach Mark Few, not to mention entirely too many former Boston Red Sox for this Yankees fan’s taste (Dustin Pedroia and Shane Victorino). There will be food trucks and beer gardens to keep you energized for the action. The Showcase has raised more than $17 million since its start in 2014, even after being forced to keep the clubs in the bag in 2020.
