(ST. JOSEPH) Despite a swell that delayed play for nearly an hour at the St. Joseph Country Club, the 11th Annual Missouri Western Celebrity Golf Classic made it through a wet Monday. 

36 teams of 135 participants, including members of Griffon coaching staffs, got through their rounds at the biggest fundraiser of the year for Griffon Athletics. 

The event featured former college and pro athletes including former Royals Danny Jackson and Al Fitzmorris, former Chiefs Shawn Barber and Mike Maslowski, and Kansas guard Bud Stallworth. 

Between 30 and 40 thousand dollars was raised, which will be divided between the Western Athletic Department and the YWCA Shelter for Abused Women and Children.
