Heading into his fourth season in the NFL, Lebanon graduate Justin Britt is back in his hometown to host his first annual ‘Justin Britt All-Star Weekend. Festivities for the All-Star Weekend will kick off tonight with a private dinner with celebrity guests and a silent auction to bid on one-of-a-kind items starting at 6 p.m. at the Cowan Civic Center.

“This is a great opportunity for the adults to have fun and for me to mingle with them a little bit,” Britt said in a phone interview on Wednesday with the LDR. “We have some really cool prizes that we are going to auction off and hopefully can raise some money for my new foundation that is up and running.”

On Saturday morning, Britt will host a golf tournament at GreatLife Golf and Fitness in Lebanon starting at 8:00 a.m. Those participating will have a chance to compete in golf contests, photo-ops, receive autographed memorabilia, and more.

“It is a small buy-in for my charity so we can give back to multiple organizations that will benefit our youth here (in Lebanon),” Britt said. “I am not a great golfer, but I am for sure going to go out there and have fun and give it my all and see what I can do.”

Saturday evening, he will host an All-Star basketball game that will feature Britt and his celebrity guests vs. members of the Lebanon community, such as former Lebanon standouts Ryan Howerton, Garett Wade, Will Cuffee, and Chris Britt.

The game will start at 6 p.m. at Boswell Auditorium at Lebanon High School, and there is no cost to get into the game.
