VERO BEACH – When the Women’s Refuge 19th annual fundraising golf tournament postponed last month, the committee immediately went to work and met for a strategy meeting on Oct 4.
“We needed to keep the momentum going, come up with new ideas, and celebrate all the things we’ve already accomplished,” explained organization’s Director of Public Relations Brenda Sposato.
The group met with one goal in mind, and that was to put together a new action plan with hopes to find a new location and reschedule their tournament.
“The tournament sold out in the early part of the summer. So, we owe it to our players and sponsors. Part of our rescheduling decision we attributed to the weather. It’s been raining for days. We don’t want it be a swimming party,” said refuge Founder Donna Lee Robart.
The new date is Jan. 6, 2018, at Bent Pine Golf Club, 6001 Clubhouse Dr., Vero Beach, with a lunch and raffle being held at 11:30 a.m., tee time at 1 p.m. and awards ceremony immediately following the tournament.
The scramble format is for men, women, and teams. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. Tickets include greens fee, golf cart, goody bag and clubhouse lunch. Prizes will be awarded. The cost is $125 per person or $475 for a foursome, sign-up deadline is Dec. 26.
“This is tremendous opportunity to play a quality golf course during peak season! We thank Bent Pine Golf Club and their management for their wonderful support!” said Event Co-Chair Chuck Erickson.
