The PInky

Willy Cellucci, This Pinky is for You. 


The Pinky, a day of golf and fellowship in tribute of everyone’s favorite Saloon Keeper Willy Cellucci, the legendary "bar keep" at The Palm Atlanta.

Willy lost his courageous battle with cancer in February 2013, but his larger than life spirit lives on in all of his friends. The Pinky is our way of honoring The Boss - by raising some essential program funds in his name.

Presented by Sysco and hosted at Heritage Golf Links, the site of many of Willy’s epic golf matches, The Pinky is a shotgun-style team scramble among golfers of all abilities (both club swinging and drinking). In 2018, GK golfers and sponsors raised $51,600 to fund nearly 30 full grants for food service workers in crisis.

Giving Kitchen would like to recognize the Cellucci family and his family at The Palm for making this golf tournament possible. Here's to drinking pink shots at 10:00am for Willy!
