Each year, the Fellowship Open honors individuals who have had a dramatic impact on the improvement of lives of people in America, with a particular focus on those who have created more opportunities for the nation’s youth. Past recipients include Henry Aaron, Herb Kohl, Willie Davis and Junior Bridgeman.

The Fellowship Open is one of the nation’s largest community empowerment golf tournaments, attracting participants from more than 25 states.

“Frank Robinson and Attorney Phillips are true examples of what it means to provide tangible benefits to so many,” said John W. Daniels Jr., chairman of the Fellowship Open.

“Both are remarkable people who have demonstrated an amazing and sustained commitment to others. Frank Robinson is a true legend — the only player in baseball history to be Most Valuable Player in both the American and National Leagues, and the first African American in the history of the sport to manage a major league team.
