FORT MYERS, Fla. ( November 3 , 2014)
To celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Shell Point Charity Golf Tournament, golfers will have the chance to score a 24-month lease on their choice of a brand new Lexus or Acura from Scanlon Auto Group by hitting a hole-in-one on a designated hole on the club’s recently-renovated championship course. “We are delighted Scanlon Auto Group is supporting our 11th anniversary tournament in such a special way,” said Timothy Stephenson, executive director of the Legacy Foundation of Shell Point. “It adds an extra element of excitement to a great day,” he added.
Registration is underway for the Nov. 14 tournament, which is presented by the Legacy Foundation to raise funds for the community’s Memory Care Center. Located in the Larsen Pavilion, the center serves senior adults who have memory loss or dementia from Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases. “Players are excited to see the improvements we continue to make to the course,” said Gary Keating, the community’s golf professional. “Renovating the greens last year was the first step. We are continuing our commitment to a quality golf experience,” said Keating.
Genesis Wealth Management of UBS Financial Services, Inc. is the title sponsor for this year’s tournament. Registration and a light breakfast will begin at 7:15 a.m. on Nov. 14. The $125 entry fee includes the 18-hole, four-person scramble, golf cart, player gift bag, prize opportunities, and lunch. Individuals or teams can register by contacting Deborah Henning at the Legacy Foundation at (239) 466-8484.
