Starks already made a large contribution to the construction of a fitness and athletic training center at the school. Now he will participate in a celebrity golf tournament at Battle Creek Golf Club in Broken Arrow to benefit the school.

Proceeds will be used toward purchase of outdoor athletic bleachers for Tulsa Central.
