Play golf and support a good cause at the fourth annual BigRed2 Charity Golf Tournament.
The tournament organized by the Big Red2 Foundation will once again benefit two local charities. Last year’s event raised $ 18,000.
NICK Camp is for children with serious illnesses to have a summer camp experience in a safe and medically healthy environment. In Jacob’s Shoes is a non-profit organization that provides shoes, backpacks, athletic equipment and school supplies to South Florida children in need.
Harlene Zweig, president of In Jacob’s Shoes, said the association is grateful for the support of Big Red2 co-chairs Seth Fellman and Todd Widom.
Fellman is CEO of Morlin Hospitality Group. Widom is a former tennis pro turned coach, and in a previous interview with Discussion about the park, both joked that they are often mistaken for brothers.
Widom said when he moved from Coral Springs to Parkland it didn’t take long for someone from Parkland Golf & Country Club to suggest there was another red-haired man he really should. meet.
“Even though I’m a younger generation, we share a lot of things in common,” Widom said.
He described how the two loved golf and were dismayed one day they couldn’t play their favorite sport due to an ongoing charity event.
The tournament takes place on Monday February 7 at the Parkland Golf and Country Club. Registration and lunch at 10:30 am, followed by a shotgun departure at noon. Individual golf registration is $ 250, including a full day of golf, activities, a cocktail and an awards dinner for one.
“Their annual charity golf tournament is first class and gives back to the local community,” Zweig said. “Last year, donations from the event enabled 700 children in the area in need to receive shoes and school supplies. We look forward to another successful event, ”she said.
Tournament players can win a Bentley for the weekend and other prizes through the silent auction and raffles. Register and find out about the different ways to sponsor the cause here.
