    Teeing up for MS: As Honorary Chair of the 16th Annual MS Golf Invitational, Head Coach Norv Turner hit the links Monday at the exclusive La Jolla Country Club to help raise funds and awareness of the disabling disease. Several Chargers brought out their irons to support their head coach, including Philip Rivers, Quentin Jammer, Mike Scifres, Eric Weddle, Billy Volek, David Binn, Steve Gregory[​IMG] and Mike Tolbert. Coach Turner, whose mother lived with a severe form of MS and whose sister currently battles the disease, is an active member of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Pacific South Coast Chapter Board of Trustees.
    Teeing up II: Cornerback Quentin Jammer and teammates will be on the fairways at the Maderas Golf Club on May 10 for the Annual Quentin Jammer Designated Driver Golf Classic, in support of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). MADD’s mission is to stop drunk driving, support victims and prevent underage drinking. Funds will benefit educational and legislation initiatives that are designed to save lives and futures.
    Stars & Strikes: Linebacker Shaun Phillips is known for his unique celebration after each sack, which shows him rolling an imaginary bowling ball toward a set of pins. The move is a tribute to his grandmother, Jackie, a former professional bowler. Phillips will be putting his bowling talents on display at the Coca-Cola Stars & Strikes Bowling Extravaganza on May 6 at the East Village Tavern and Bowl in Downtown San Diego. The bowling event will benefit After-School All-Stars, a program whose goal is to provide comprehensive out-of-school programs that keep kids safe and help them achieve success in school. For more information, visit www.sdafterschoolallstars.org.
    Naanee’s community spirit: Wide receiver Legedu Naanee[​IMG] joins an all-star cast, including Pro Football Hall of Famer Earl Campbell and former NFLers Lorenzo Neal and Eric Allen as hosts of the Flavors of the Gaslamp on May 13 at the House of Blues in San Diego. The event is an exclusive benefit which highlights diverse and award-winning restaurants from San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. The event will feature fine food from House of Blues, Asti Ristorante, Soleil@k, Urban Bar and Grille, Candelas, Rama, Morton’s, Monsoon Group, Café Sevilla, Bice and La Fiesta. The event will raise funds for the Family Reach Foundation and Rady’s Children’s Hospital. Contact Mary B. at MaryB@gamedayconsulting.net for more information.
    Naanee will also host the Legedu Naanee Football Camp on May 15 at Hoover High School. About 200 middle school and high school students have been pre-selected and will receive hands-on teaching from a chosen group of NFL stars, college athletes, and professional and high school coaches. The camp will focus on football fundamentals, position play, speed work, agility drills and game strategy.
    Rookies in the house: The Chargers’ 2010 draft picks and undrafted rookie free agents will be in town Friday and Saturday for a “rookie orientation,” which will include mainly work in the classroom and some on-field work with their individual position coaches. It will be the first time all of the rookies will be together at Chargers Park.
    Stuff the Bus: Safeties Steve Gregory and Eric Weddle were on hand for United Way’s “Stuff the Bus!” this past weekend. The sports equipment drive collected pieces of new equipment for children in need, many living in foster care. United Way and Promises2Kids partnered to help stuff a big yellow school bus full of new equipment for these kids. New sports equipment is often out of reach for children living in foster care. Owning a football, a baseball glove, or even a sturdy pair of sneakers allows all kids a chance at health and fitness.
    Serving fun: Defensive end Luis Castillo[​IMG] and the Padres’ Heath Bell served as co-chairs of the 10th Annual Celebrity Waiter Luncheon on Friday. Castillo, teammates Steve Gregory, Ian Scott[​IMG], Kevin Ellison[​IMG], Jacques Cesaire[​IMG], Scott Mruczkowski[​IMG] and defensive coordinator Ron Rivera donned aprons to raise funds for at-risk youth by waiting on tables at the Balboa Park Club. All “tips” earned benefited STAR/PAL (Sports Training, Academics, Recreation/Police Athletic League) youth programs, helping thousands of inner-city youth.
