The Lazydays Employee Foundation’s 8th Annual Golf Tournament has raised a total of $115,000 to support at-risk youth in the Tampa Bay communities.
The proceeds will fund a variety of programs designed to empower local children with education and opportunities. Major partners included Bank of America, returning for the eighth consecutive year, Greenberg Traurig and Grand Design.
Sponsors and golfers gathered at the Lazydays Crown Club on Thursday, May 3, for a kickoff dinner, silent auction and 50/50 raffle. As in previous years, all 36 team slots sold out for the 2018 Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament, which took place on Friday, May 4, at the River Hills Country Club in Valrico, Fla.
Participating golfers played 18 holes and competed in putting contests, longest drive and closest-to-the-pin challenges, and hole-in-one shootouts with an Entegra Odyssey motorhome as the top prize. An awards luncheon was held immediately following the tournament.
“We’d like to thank the many sponsors, vendors, manufacturers, players and volunteers who make this event possible. Their contributions, together with ongoing employee donations, enable us to instill hope, inspire dreams and improve children’s lives,” said Joe Myers, president of the Lazydays Employee Foundation. “Due to the success of these efforts, we are thrilled to have launched a new initiative supporting Bridging Freedom in their cause of bringing restoration to sex trafficking victims rescued as well as victim prevention to those they reach.”
The 9th Annual Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 3, 2019.
