NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher and Washington coach Mike Shanahan will be back helping raise money again for the foundation named for their late friend and former coach Mike Heimerdinger.

They are among those taking part in the second annual Drive 4 Dinger Celebrity golf tournament and kickoff party Friday and Saturday. The event honors Heimerdinger, who coached with Shanahan in Denver and was Fisher's offensive coordinator in two stints with Tennessee. Heimerdinger died of cancer in 2011.

This event is the key fundraiser for the Heimerdinger Foundation's Meals2Heal program delivering food to people undergoing cancer treatment.

Kathie Heimerdinger says Meals2Heal has had a direct impact and that this event provides the money paying for the program. She says their goal is to be bigger and better this year.
