Larry Krystkowiak’s sports specialty may be basketball, but he’s providing an opportunity for a group to play a round of golf with him sometime by the end of next August for a good cause.

The Utah men’s basketball coach is among 100 college basketball coaches and national celebrities who have teamed up with Coaches vs. Cancer to raise money, and this offering is part of the organization’s “Member for a Day” Golf Auction.

The auction will be a virtual one held from Nov. 18-27.

High bidders in Krystkowiak’s auction will join him for a round of golf at Hidden Valley Country Club in Sandy. They will bring two others to create a foursome with Krystkowiak, and lunch and team apparel will also be included in select packages.

The round must be played by Aug. 31 of next year.

“We are excited to collaborate with our longtime partner bdG Sports along with Member for A Day and MGM Resorts International to raise funds through such a one-of-a-kind program,” said Howard Byck, senior vice president of Corporate & Sports Alliances for the American Cancer Society, in a statement. “Despite the pandemic, cancer has not stopped and neither have our extraordinary Coaches as we work together to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.”

The auction can be accessed here. The bidding starts at $500. Eleven of the men’s basketball coaches in the Pac-12 will have auctions open, as will celebrities such as baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. and former Oklahoma Sooners head football coach Bob Stoops.
