The 10th Annual Shell Point Open Charity Golf Tournament, presented by the Legacy Foundation at Shell Point, hosted 124 golfers and raised $25,000 to benefit the community’s Memory Care Center that serves senior adults who have memory loss or dementia from Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases.
“Golfers and sponsors alike continue to support this tournament each year not only because of the camaraderie, but because of the opportunity to help with a worthwhile cause,” said Timothy Stephenson, executive director of the Legacy Foundation. “This tournament is just one way that we can help individuals receive the best memory care possible, while also having some fun playing Shell Point’s newly renovated course,” he added.
The Scoggins/Moreland Group of UBS Financial Services, Inc. was recognized as the seven-time title sponsor for the tournament. Continue reading “THE SHELL POINT OPEN CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT SCORES A HOLE IN ONE FOR THE MEMORY CARE CENTER”

Masters of harmony, The Four Freshmen will present a variety of traditional hits and holiday favorites on Thursday, December 19 at 7:30 p.m. in The Village Church Auditorium on the Island at Shell Point Retirement Community.
Sharing the sounds that have enamored listeners worldwide for 65 years, The Four Freshmen have gained recognition as one of the most influential vocal groups of all time. The group has been inspired by the likes of The Beach Boys, Kenny Rogers, The Mamas and the Papas, Frankie Valli, The Manhattan Transfer, and countless others.
As freshmen in college, four young men crafted a unique style of vocal harmony that soon caught the ear of the great bandleader Stan Kenton. The group has toured the country since their inception, receiving six Grammy nominations along the way and continuing to perform to sold-out audiences around the globe. Although the faces have changed through the years, the integrity of the sound created by the original four members has been meticulously maintained by its current lineup: Bob Ferreira, Brian Eichenberger, Curtis Calderon, and Stein Malvey.
