The 140 golfers who participated in Shell Point Retirement Community’s 12th annual Charity Golf Tournament on Nov. 13 enjoyed a day of beautiful weather, while raising $40,000 to benefit Shell Point’s Memory Care Programs.
The funds will 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.

Emcee and ABC-7 news anchor Krista Fogelsong announced the tournament winners and thanked sponsors for supporting the event.
“The best part is that we raised money for an excellent cause,” said Scott Loiacano, Wright Construction Group, Title Co-Sponsor.Shell Point Golf Club’s 18-hole, par-71 championship golf course is an Audubon-certified property, offering a grass driving range and practice green, lessons coordinated by PGA pro Gary Keating, plus a fully stocked pro shop and snack bar.
