The third edition of The Showcase, which raises money for the fight against cancer in the Spokane-Coeur d’Alene region, returns to the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course on July 29-30.

Gonzaga will be represented by Robert Sacre, who has played four seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers; Adam Morrison, Mead High product and 2006 co-college player of the year who played four NBA seasons; and head coach Mark Few. Eastern Washington football coach Beau Baldwin and ESPN’s Neil Everett will be on hand, and the list of athletes and celebrities is expected to grow.

The Showcase Celeb-Am will be Friday, July 29, with corporate partners paired with celebrities, followed by the 19th hole party. The Showcase, presented by GoPro, on Saturday, July 30, features a clinic, a 9-hole celebrity golf exhibition and the VIP Summer Bash on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
