Stephen Curry ThanksUSA Annual Charity Golf Tournament
The second annual Stephen Curry ThanksUSA Charity Golf Tournament took place on September 24, 2012, at the prestigious Presidio Golf Club in San Francisco.
Members of the US Coast Guard, local sport VIPs, corporate sponsors and other individuals all came together with NBA star Curry and his Golden State Warrior teammates in support of ThanksUSA. The tournament was a great success and we are very thankful to everyone who attended, including Stephen’s father, former NBA player Dell Curry, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, and local ThanksUSA scholar Maria Barrameda.

What’s New with Stephen Curry
As a student at Davidson College in Charlotte, NC, Stephen received a scholarship that gave him an opportunity to receive an education and thus an amazing career in basketball. As Stephen says, “With a college scholarship you can afford to dream big...your support can help us win and win big.”
Thanks to his start at Davidson, he has had a successful NBA professional basketball career since 2009 (when he was drafted in the first round) and is now considered one of the League’s best shooters.
