Lunch, and a silent auction, will be provided for all players and an awards presentation and sponsor recognition will follow each tournament. George E. Warren Corporation is event’s major sponsor; theme sponsors are Publix Super Markets Charities and Marquis Insurance..
The funds raised from the tournament help support important after-school Club programs in the areas of education, sports & fitness, health & life skills, the arts, character and leadership development, and community service. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County, a United Way and Children’s Services Advisory Committee agency, provides quality programs to children ages 6-18 at one location in Sebastian and two in Vero Beach. Plans call for expansion into Fellsmere and building a new club in Vero Beach in 2010. The top priority of the Boys & Girls Clubs is to help children succeed in school and in life
There is still time to participate in either tournament, sponsor a tee sign or donate a silent auction item.
