Emmitt Smith hosts annual golf tournament, gala

Cowboys Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith and his wife Pat are celebrating 10 years of their annual gala and celebrity invitational golf tournament.

Funds from the annual event benefit Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities and support over 150 other North Texas charities.

Each year at the event, the Roger Staubach Award is given to individuals who have brought together sports, entertainment and business to make an impact on the lives of children.

This year’s recipients will be Dirk Nowitzki and his wife Jessica.

“Dirk this year, what a phenomenal athlete! What a person and what a pillar to this community. What he's been able to do not only on the basketball court but just being the person that he is off the basketball court as well,” Smith said on Good Day. “When you get a guy like Dirk or myself or something like that, you have great women around you. So you definitely have to celebrate the entire family."

The 10 annual Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational Gala starts Friday at the Omni Frisco at The Star and continues Saturday with a golf tournament at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney.
