Hangin' in the Hamptons: Newsday
A Knick, a Giant and a 'Housewife' tee off in Hamptons
New York Knick Chris Duhon, "NY Housewife" Jill Zarin, and New York Giant Justin Tuck played in the Hamptons Golf Classic V Monday, June 29, at the Hampton Hills Golf & Country Club in Westhampton to benefit Duhon's Stand Tall Foundation.
Duhon, a native of Slidell, La., started the foundation to build up kids through recreation, education and welfare.
In response to Hurricane Katrina that devastated not only New Orleans but his hometown about 30 miles away, he started Operation 21 with the goal of "building 21 outdoor courts for the New Orleans area, so the kids can have a place to play. That kept me out of trouble, having a park to go to and playing any kind of sport." He tells his story in the current Hamptons magazine.
Get There public relations principle Zev Norotsky founded the tournament, which benefits different charities each year, because, he said he thinks, "Golf is the one sport that embodies the spirit of the Hamptons." -- Lee Fryd
