Bengals coaches, players, staff, alumni, and other celebrities participated in the Marvin Lewis Community Fund Golf Classic's Celebrity Shootout closest to the pin contest. This year's winner was former WR Isaac Curtis. The annual event is a major fundraiser for the MLCF and helps provide college scholarships to deserving youth in the community. This year eight $20,000 scholarships were awarded to students in the Greater Cincinnati area.
The Cincinnati Bengals and the NFL Foundation teamed up to contribute $200,000 to the Deer Park Community City Schools athletic department, topping off a fundraising effort that now has raised $700,000. The grant will help to install artificial stadium turf, new goal posts and asphalt in necessary areas at the Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School stadium.
