Approximately 120 golfers from the Central Florida area came out for a day of fun, food and inspiration out on the course.
Quality Labor Management received an overwhelming amount of support from the Central Florida community. In addition to golf team sponsorships, many of the local businesses provided monetary donations and items to giveaway. Local restaurant chains donated gift certificates and coupons. Others donated their time by volunteering to work the event.
“It’s encouraging to see a community come together to support such a great cause,” President and CEO Mark Lang states. Lang adds, “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is structured so that 81 cents of every dollar received is directly attributed to research or treatment for the hospital.”
The event offered many on-course activities and contests for the golfers. Parks Lincoln of Longwood and Marine Max/Parker Boats both sponsored hole-in-one opportunities for either a vehicle or boat. Also featured was a live auction of themed “experience baskets.” One basket contained Orlando theme park attraction tickets, a complimentary hotel stay and local restaurant gift card.
