The funds raised will help us in our goal to be able to help more people recover from addiction and especially those who are financially challenged in these tough economic times.
Spring Hill, FL (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
Narconon Suncoast Rehabilitation Center held its inaugural Charity Golf Tournament at Spring Hill’s Silverthorn Country Club September 24th. The golf tournament helped raise funds for their Drug Rehabilitation Scholarship program. This program assists individuals struggling with alcohol or drug addiction who face financial hardship and have no insurance.
Derek Queener, Narconon Suncoast Rehab Center Withdrawal Administrator, graduate of the Narconon Program and golf enthusiast, spearheaded the very successful golf tournament fund raiser. “As a graduate of the Narconon program myself, I want to help others recover from their addictions so they too can go on to lead happy, productive drug free lives. Combining two of my passions – helping people beat their addictions and playing golf – makes me happy and bringing together friends, supporters, graduates and families all in support of this worthy goal is very rewarding,” says Queener.
This first time charity event was honored by many prestigious sponsors who donated funds and prizes for the winners of the tournament: Ed Morse Auto Way New Port Richey, Postcard Mania, John King Morris/Super Skate, Novus Medical Detox, Natures Dynamics, Honka Automotive, Larry Trainer Printing, Say No To Drugs Race, Dixon Golf, The Weisenbergs, Baker & Baker Motorsports, Sober World, JOTO Public Relations, Progress Health & Fitness, Printing in a Box, drugrehab.org, Judy Queener Biggart, Dr. Robert Karol DMD-PA, Toucan Partners LLC, Modern Coin Mart, Michele Lloyd and many more.
“We are thrilled by the success of our first charity golf tournament. The funds raised will help us in our goal to be able to help more people recover from addiction and especially those who are financially challenged in these tough economic times. We will now be able to sponsor another student with the funds that went to our scholarship program from this event. This was our first charity golf tournament and all of the support we received was truly heartwarming,” says Tammy Strickling, Executive Director of Narconon Suncoast Rehabilitation Center.
