Golfers are invited to participate in Shell Point Retirement Community’s 12th annual Shell Point Open Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, Nov. 13, at Shell Point Golf Club in Fort Myers. Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 7 a.m.; cost is $128 per player.
Presented by The Legacy Foundation at Shell Point, along with Title Co-Sponsors Wright Construction Group and FineMark National Bank & Trust, this tournament will raise funds for Shell Point’s Memory Care programs. These programs serve Shell Point residents and members of the Southwest Florida community who suffer from memory loss and dementia due to Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases.
Golfers will vie for a chance to win big hole-in-one prizes: a R1200RT BMW motorcycle, a “tricked-out” golf cart, and a 2015 Sea-Doo jet ski with trailer. Following the tournament, ABC-7 news anchor Krista Fogelsong will announce the winners of the tournament, raffle prizes, and silent auction during a catered barbecue lunch.
“The course is in great shape, and the tournament is well-organized. We expect a great turnout and beautiful fall weather. The best part is that we are raising money for an excellent cause,” said Scott Loiacano, Wright Construction Group, Title Co-Sponsor.
To register a team or as an individual, please contact The Legacy Foundation at 239-466-8484. Space is limited, so please RSVP before Monday, Nov. 9.
