JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The CSI Companies and its nonprofit initiative CSI Gives Back today announced A Tee of Dreams: a fundraising event to benefit a local teen through Dreams Come True of Jacksonville.
A Tee of Dreams marks CSI's 8th year of partnership with local wish granting organization Dreams Come True. Through the event, CSI colleagues, family members, and friends will raise funds to fulfill a wish for a local dreamer. This year's event will benefit 13-year-old Keyden who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2017. All proceeds from the event will go towards fulfilling Keyden's wish for a 5-day tropical getaway with his family on the Disney Dream Ship in September.
Since 2012, The CSI Companies has raised more than $83,000 for Dreams Come True and granted 17 dreams in the Jacksonville community.
"If making a difference in someone's life simply required a few hours of our time and commitment, we want to continue granting as many wishes as we possibly can through Dreams Come True," said Chris Flakus, Chief Operating Officer of The CSI Companies.
The event takes place at TopGolf Jacksonville on Thursday, May 16, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Open to the public, A Tee of Dreams hopes to connect CSI colleagues and Dreams Come True families and staff with the community over golf, food, drinks, and a silent auction featuring items donated by well-known Northeast Florida businesses.
CSI Gives Back was established as an official nonprofit organization in January of 2019. In the previous year, it raised more than $60,000 in support of organizations such as Dreams Come True, American Lung Association, High School 9:12, The HEAL Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, The Humane Society, Hunger Fight, Rethreaded, and more.
