FORT MYERS, Fla. ( October 7 , 2013)
Golfers are invited to participate in the 10th annual Shell Point Open Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, Nov. 8, at Shell Point Golf Club in Fort Myers.
The tournament, presented by the Legacy Foundation at Shell Point, will raise funds for Shell Point’s Memory Care Center. Located in the Larsen Pavilion, the Center serves Shell Point residents and members of the surrounding community who have memory loss and dementia from Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases.
The Scoggins/Moreland Group of UBS Financial Services is the title sponsor for this year’s tournament. Golfers will vie for a chance to win a 24-month lease on their choice of a brand new Lexus or Acura from Scanlon Auto Group by scoring a hole-in-one at the right hole.
“Our annual golf tournament is just one way that we can help support a great cause while also having a lot of fun,” said Timothy Stephenson, executive director of the Legacy Foundation. “We’ll also have the pleasure of playing on the new Platinum Paspalum greens that Shell Point Golf Club installed over the summer.”
The tournament registration and a light breakfast will begin at 7:15 a.m. The $125 entry fee includes the 18-hole, four-person scramble, golf cart, player gift bag, prize opportunities, and lunch.
To register, inquire about sponsorship opportunities, or make a tax-deductible donation to the Memory Care Center at Shell Point, please contact Deborah Henning at the Legacy Foundation (239) 466-8484.
