SANTA ROSA GOLF & BEACH CLUB HOSTS FOOD FOR THOUGHT GOLF
5th Annual Tournament Helps Fight Child Hunger
The 5th Annual Food For Thought Outreach Charity Golf Tournament presented by 30A Cottages & Concierge is set for April 7th, 2016. The Tournament will be hosted by “30A Hot Spot for Golf,” Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club, for the third year in a row. Every level of golfer has a fair chance at conquering the course with seven sets of tees, the only course in the area featuring two holes with Gulf views, and plenty of food, drinks, and fun from local sponsors and donors!
Check-in starts at 11:30am and will be followed by a 12:45pm shotgun start. The afternoon of golf will be followed by an Awards Reception and Happy Hour at the VUE presented by Sunburst Beach Vacations.
As one of the featured fundraisers for the year, Food For Thought Outreach has big shoes to fill. Last year was a great success raising over $8000 for local children in need. During the 2015-2016 school year, Food For Thought Outreach feeds 1,200 children each week by providing backpacks of healthy, kid-friendly food items to bridge the gap of missed meals over the weekend for students who receive free or reduced lunch during the week. Service is available in 16 schools across Walton and Okaloosa Counties.
“Events like the Golf Tournament help us ensure that we can continue providing the children we serve with healthy, easy to prepare meals each Friday throughout the school year and during school vacations.,” says Tiffanie Nelson, Founder and Executive Director of Food For Thought Outreach. “This is a great way to raise money and awareness in our community. We are so grateful to have Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Resort partner with us again this year to host the Tournament.”
Golfers can expect a great day of golf as well as special treats from Pop Stop, Grayton Beer Company, and amazing raffle and silent auction items including packages from Travinia Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, a Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard Staycation, YETI gift package and Deluxe Beach Bonfire Package from Rent Gear Here, and more!
