Auburn basketball lettermen including Charles Barkley, John Mengelt, Marquis Daniels, Chris Morris, Chris Porter, Pat Burke, Frank Ford, Gerald White, Coach Sonny Smith and over 30 others have a reunion this weekend.

Following a sold out Friday golf tournament benefitting Coach Tony Barbee's M.A.D.E. Foundation at the Auburn University Club, the lettermen will take part in a get together at an awards party at the Hotel at Auburn University. The group will also tailgate before and after the Auburn vs. Louisiana-Monroe football game this weekend. Players will be introduced on the field between the first and second quarters.

"It is going to be another very exciting weekend welcoming back our basketball lettermen," said Auburn head coach Tony Barbee. "We had an outstanding time with all of them last year, and I am really looking forward to a fun weekend of fellowship."

All proceeds from the tournament will go toward Barbee's Making A Difference Everywhere foundation, a non-profit organization whose goal is to partner with charities and other non-profit groups throughout the state of Alabama to help underprivileged kids.
