The Weekend of Fun, includes Charity Golf Classic and Dinner, Celebrity Basketball Game and Fun Day in the Park 

Featuring Over 30 Professional Athletes

Pahokee, Florida – February 8, 2012 – Pro Bowl wide receiver Anquan Boldin of the Baltimore Ravens along with the Anquan Boldin Foundation (Q81 Foundation) is excited to announce the 8th Annual Q-Festival Weekend taking place in Palm Beach County on April 12-14, 2012.  This free community weekend has become famous for attracting over 30 NFL athletes throughout the weekend with signature events, including a Charity Golf Tournament & Dinner, a Celebrity Basketball Game and the Fun Day in the Park activities.  This year several more events will be added, such as the first annual Gospel Celebration featuring Tye Tribbet, offering a variety of activities for all audiences to participate.

The Charity Golf Tournament, taking place on April 12, 2012 will be played with a profound group of celebrity golfers and supporters for a great experience at the Madison Green Golf Club in Royal Palm Beach, FL.   The Tournament is the fundraising portion of the annual Q-Festival Weekend, also serving to continue to raise awareness and funds for both education and recreational programs in Boldin’s hometown of Pahokee. 

In addition to the Charity Golf Tournament, the Q-Festival Weekend is comprised of the popular Celebrity Basketball Game on April 13 and the Fun Day in the Park on April 14, both taking place in Pahokee.  The Celebrity Basketball Game has been a record-making draw to fans as well as NFL players throughout the league, including players such as Ravens Ray Lewis and Ray Rice, Superbowl Champion Antrel Rolle, Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald, Jets Darrelle Revis, Eagles LeSean McCoy, Bears Josh McCown, Texans Andre Johnson, NFL legends Michael Irvin, Rickey Jackson, Edgerrin James and many more.  The Pahokee events are free to the public for everyone interested in attending and include food, entertainment, contests, giveaways, performances and celebration.

“Q-Fest is a weekend of fun and my way of saying thanks to my hometown of Pahokee for the years of support given to me,” says Boldin.  “Every year our numbers grow, we have greater support from partners and the community, and we continue to hear feedback where fans consider Q-Fest among the top-rated community events of the year.  We’re very proud of that!”

Boldin, three-time Pro Bowl football player, has a decorated history on and off the field.  This year Boldin will be inducted into the Palm Beach County Sports Hall of Fame on March 25, and he will be honored as a 2012 Distinguished Alumni by the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, Inc.  Pahokee named their state of the art, high school stadium after Boldin for his dedication to the community.

    H Anquan,

    May I suggest that you make 2 – 4 of your Baltimore fans, guest to attend the festival in Florida? This will make you look good and shine. Many of us would love to fly down but don’t have the extra funds with the way our economy is today. For one, I love to watch golf and have worked on several golf touneys but I don’t play. I’d love to watch the celebruty b-ball gave and take part with the festival in the park. With this said, I’m sure others in our area would love to go also. Just think about it is all that I ask.

    Have a successful event and get your well deserved rest.
    Take care,
    Juanita from the Annapolis Mall
    I was one of the last two you signed shirts for – you signed the one I was wearing and anothet I carried to UA; both UA shirts :-)

    Hi Quan, I’ve attended several of your events and I must commend you, the participants and esp. the staff, for making it a great weekend. I had my first and best red velvet cupcakes at one (2008) and haven’t turned them down since. Mr. McCoy wrote a message in my event booklet stating to look for him as the future NFL MVP-looks like he’s well on his way.. This event is so much more than just fun and autographs, it’s much needed funding and an inspiration to so many of the children there and a sense of pride for us all. My family is there (Pate) and I’ve been coming to Pahokee my entire life, it’s my second home, so keep up the outstanding blessings my brother that you shower on us all and may God keep you and your family in perfect peace.

    Hi Anquan! I pray your event turn out well. My students need to get out of the walls of South Carolina, however, as a nin-profit organization right now we cant afford to bring every child. Could you please consider making an appearance in a little town right of I95 (exit 122) at our community school and say hello. This will make their day. even if its three minutes. MAybe one day I will be able to bring them to Pahokee (im from Clewiston) to the Q-fest so they can see greatness in action! Be blessed and keep up the good work!
