The Mickey Sims Memorial Golf Outing is a fundraising event in memory of former Cleveland Browns defensive tackle, Robert “Mickey” Sims. He was drafted in 1977 and played 3 seasons with the Browns before retiring from the game. Mickey was truly considered a gentle giant because despite his large frame he was a kind, gentle, and giving soul. He passed away in June, 2006 of a massive heart attack, leaving behind his wife (Brenda), son (Rob Sims - Left Guard/Detroit Lions), and daughter (Robyn). His family continues to honor his legacy through the act of giving back to the community. In previous years, The Sims family donated all proceeds from the golf outing to The Mickey Sims Scholarship Fund at Cuyahoga Community College, which is now endowed at more than $46,000.

Last year the Sims family was able to donate $10,000 to Cornerstone of Hope, a grieving center for children, teens, and adults who have lost a loved one. Cornerstone of Hope provides counseling, grief camps, art and group therapy for individuals within the community. The Sims family has decided to make Cornerstone of Hope their beneficiary again this year for The 7th Annual Mickey Sims Memorial Golf Outing on June 18th. We are passionate about the mission of this organization, as it directly relates to the circumstances of our loss.

We are asking for your help in giving hope back to our community. Your company can help us by providing a donation through registering for golf, choosing one of our hole sponsor levels, or purchasing benefit dinner tickets. Your company can also provide cash or a check donation, or donate gifts for the live and silent auction held at our benefit dinner. Please make all checks payable to Mickey Sims Memorial Golf Outing. Your tax-deductible donations will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your support.
