Steph Curry's appearance at the Safeway Open Pro-Am on Wednesday in Napa included a meeting that was a year in the making.
The Warriors star donated $25,000 in August 2018 to a GoFundMe page for Jenn Harrington, the wife of professional golfer Scott Harrington, who was battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Harrington's cancer now is in remission, and her husband finally met Curry on Wednesday at the Silverado Resort and Spa Course, 13 months after his donation.
A year ago, @StephenCurry30's foundation donated $25,000 to Scott Harrington and his wife Jenn, who was battling cancer.

What an awesome moment.
"This is crazy, full circle," Curry said before taking a picture with Harrington.
Curry's donation helped the Harringtons exceed their initial $150,000 fund-raising goal, and the couple donated subsequent funds raised to the Children's Cancer Association in Portland.
Scott Harrington took a leave from the Korn Ferry Tour last year in order to care for Jenn, but he returned to the tour in 2019. Last month, he officially earned his first PGA Tour card by finishing in the top 25 of the Korn Ferry Tour's money list.
Harrington will tee off Thursday at the Safeway Open at 1:35 p.m. PT. When he does, he surely will have Curry's support.
