Pro golfer Marc Leishman, wife Audrey provide meals for local hospital workers

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Monday, Virginia Beach professional golfer Marc Leishman, along with his wife Audrey, announced their annual charity event has been postponed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Begin Again Foundation’s New Beginnings Gala and Begin Again Celebrity Classic has been moved from April 19th/20th to September 13th/14th. These new dates are pending based on any changes to the PGA Tour schedule. Marc is currently the No. 15 ranked golfer in the world.

The New Beginnings Gala and Begin Again Celebrity Classic are massive fundraisers for our community, raising nearly $500,000 last year. However, the Leishmans are hoping to turn a negative into a positive.

As the coronavirus impacts our area, forcing cancellations of many events – including the Begin Again Foundation’s charity weekend, the couple posted Monday that they will be supporting the heroes who are keeping our friends, families and neighbors safe. Read more from WTKR’s Adam Winkler
