Charlie Rose to co-host TWF’s 20th anniversary celebration

The Tiger Woods Foundation is excited to announce that preeminent journalist and news anchor Charlie Rose will co-host the Tiger Woods Foundation’s 20th anniversary celebration at the iconic New York Public Library in New York City on Oct. 20, 2016. Rose will join host Tiger Woods on stage for a candid conversation about the past, present and future of TWF. The evening’s Celebration of Unexpected Champions promises to be an incredible red-carpet event filled with celebrities, athletes and luminaries.

Rose serves as anchor and executive editor of “Charlie Rose,” the nightly one-hour program that engages in one-on-one, in-depth conversations and round-table discussions, and the newly launched “Charlie Rose: This Week,” chronicling the best stories and interviews of the past seven days. He also co-anchors “CBS This Morning”,” is a correspondent for “60 Minutes” and fills in for Scott Pelley on the “CBS Evening News.”

Since 1991, Rose has aired countless hours with Nobel Laureates and extraordinary men and women of science, politics, art, business, sports, technology, literature and entertainment. These conversations have made the broadcast a cultural and intellectual archive. He is the recipient of the Legion d’Honneur and numerous awards from the scientific and journalism communities, and many honorary degrees, including from Georgetown, North Carolina State, Fordham and others.   

Rose won an Emmy Award and Peabody Prize for his 2013 interview with Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and was named among the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine. He was the recipient of the 2015 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism and the 2014 Vincent Scully Prize. 

We hope you’ll join Charlie Rose and Tiger Woods for an unforgettable evening celebrating our unexpected champions. With Tiger underwriting the event, 100 percent of your support goes directly toward helping students thrive in school, their communities and the working world.

Champions of the unexpected for 20 years.
