"Our sincerest appreciation to Cedric the Entertainer and Andia Winslow for co-hosting the event and to all the celebrities and industry executives who participated in the tournament," said Cris Abrego, chair of the Television Academy Foundation. "Our generous corporate sponsors made this year's event a tremendous success. The funds raised will support the Foundation's year-round programming offering diverse students nationwide educational events and paid internships at top Hollywood production companies to help them on their career paths."

The tournament kicked off with "on-the-green" carpet arrivals, a putting contest, full round of golf and an afternoon cocktail reception. The day concluded with an auction and awards dinner where honors were presented, including:
