Several Titans teammates joined Finnegan for a day of golf including Ken Amato, Tony Brown, Vincent Fuller, Quinton Ganther, Michael Griffin, Nick Harper, Tuff Harris, Chris Hope, Jason Jones, Mike Otto, Michael Roos, Stephen Tulloch, Kevin Vickerson and Cary Williams. Other notable celebrity guests included Christian music artist Gary Chapman and singers/songwriters Melinda Doolittle and Paul Overstreet.

"I think the tournament was a great success," said Finnegan. "It's great to see so much support from my teammates and the community for these two organizations. Being able to give back means a lot to me and I'm just looking forward to another great event next year."

Celebrity golfers were able to interact with numerous fans from the area in attendance, taking time to sign autographs and take pictures throughout the day. After the round, many of the players remained for the steak dinner and awards ceremony. Finnegan addressed the audience and thanked the participants before and after the festivities showing his appreciation for their support for the two benefitting charities.



The golf tournament marked what Finnegan hopes will be the first of many fundraisers for ARK 31 in the Middle Tennessee area.  The non-profit organizations that ARK 31 chose to support for 2009 are The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Special Olympics Tennessee.  Finnegan has had a long-standing relationship with these non-profits and continues to feel touched by their mission and work within the community.

Finnegan is known for his philanthropic efforts throughout the Nashville community and was considered one of the Titans Community All-Stars in 2008.  In addition, Finnegan hosted his 2nd Annual Karaoke for a Cure event on April 1st to raise funds for his charities of choice.

ARK 31 (Acts of Random Kindness and his Titans jersey number 31) is a non-profit organization committed to serving children with special needs and disabilities throughout the Middle Tennessee area.
