TAMPA, Fla. — The Lazydays Employee Foundation today announced that its seventh annual golf tournament has raised more than $100,000 to support at-risk youth in the Tampa Bay, Tucson, Denver and Northern Colorado communities.
The proceeds will fund a variety of programs designed to empower local children with education and opportunity. Major partners included Platinum Sponsor Greenberg Traurig and Bank of America, which returned as tournament sponsor for the seventh consecutive year.
Sponsors and golfers gathered at the Lazydays Crown Club May 4 for a kick-off dinner, silent auction and 50/50 raffle. As in previous years, all 36 team slots sold out for the 2017 Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament, which took place May 5 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 RV 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 made this event possible. Their contributions, together with ongoing Lazydays employee donations, enable us to instill hope, inspire dreams and improve children’s lives,” said Katherine Kearney, chair of fundraising for the Lazydays Employee Foundation. “Following the success of this year’s tournament, I’m excited to say we’ll be announcing our next big project within the next month.”
The eighth annual Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament is tentatively scheduled May 4. Details and sponsorship/registration information will be posted at www.ldef.org/golf closer to the event.
