The 8TH Annual Charity Shell Point Open Focuses on Patriotic Theme

FORT MYERS, Fla. (October 19, 2011)

There is still time to sign up for sponsorships and for golfers for the “Red, White and Blue Scramble”, Shell Point’s 8th annual charity Shell Point Open Golf Tournament. This year the tournament takes place on Friday, November 11, 2011, at the Shell Point Golf Club in Fort Myers announced Timothy Stephenson, Executive Director of the Legacy Foundation at Shell Point. The tournament, presented by The Legacy Foundation, will raise funds for the not-for-profit Waterside Medical Complex which offers medical and healthcare services to residents of Shell Point and the surrounding local community. This complex includes the Larsen Pavilion, a 219 bed skilled nursing facility, a state-of-art rehabilitation center, and many more healthcare services.

“This year we will host the tournament on a very special day, 11-11-11, and plan to honor all veterans that are present as well as those who served in the past,” said Stephenson. “This is our 8th year hosting the Shell Point Open, and we have received overwhelming support each and every year. Golfers and sponsors alike continue to support and enjoy this tournament because of developing friendships and the opportunity to help a worthwhile cause. This tournament is just one way that we can help individuals receive the best healthcare possible, while also having some fun.”

The tournament registration will begin at 7:15am. UBS Financial Services Inc., The Scoggins/Moreland Group has graciously offered to be the title sponsor for the event.
