The Lazydays Employee Foundation is proud to announce that its 9th Annual Golf Tournament has raised more than $130,000 to support at-risk youth in the Tampa Bay area. The proceeds will fund a variety of programs designed to empower local children with educational and life-changing opportunities. Major partners included Bank of America, returning for the eighth consecutive year, Greenberg Traurig LLP and M&T Bank.
Similar to previous years, all 36 team slots sold out for the 2019 Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament, which took place on Friday, May 10th at the River Hills Country Club in Valrico, Florida. To kick off the fundraising event, sponsors and golfers were able to participate in a web-based Silent Auction. The tournament golfers played 18 holes and competed in putting contests, longest drive and closest-to-the-pin challenges, and hole-in-one shootouts with an Winnebago Intent motorhome as the top prize. An awards luncheon was held immediately following the tournament.
“We graciously thank the many sponsors, vendors, manufacturers, players and volunteers who make this event possible,” said Joe Myers, President of the Lazydays Employee Foundation. “Their contributions, together with ongoing Lazydays employee donations, enable us to instill hope, inspire dreams and improve children’s lives. Most recently, we were able to build a gateway home to support Bridging Freedom’s efforts to provide long-term treatment to young women rescued from sex trafficking.”
The 10th Annual Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 8, 2020.
