Golf Committee 2019

Adopt-A-Family Prepares the Greens for their Eighth Annual Better Ball Invitational Golf Tournament on May 3, 2019

Boca Raton, FL – Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches had a big 2018 with a beautiful ground-breaking of their new housing project in Lake Worth, and most-importantly, thanks to so much community support, they were able to help over 2,000 families. Continuing that momentum, the organization is excited to host their Eighth Annual Better Ball Invitational Golf Tournament. The event, scheduled for Friday, May 3, 2019, will take place at the Jack Nicklaus designed Banyan Cay Resort & Golf in West Palm Beach, and will raise critical funds for the organization dedicated to helping families in crisis return to stability.

The day will begin with lunch at noon. The Shotgun Start is at 1:30 p.m., and the event will conclude with the shootout, cocktails and an award presentation from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The format is one stroke play – 90% handicap – better ball of the twosome. Registration is $500 per player or $1,000 per two-player team and includes cocktails and delicious hors d’ oeuvres, a $50 gift card for The Banyan Cay Pro Shop, use of driving range, 18 holes of golf with. carts and a forecaddie. Space is limited, making the event a “must attend” for the golfing crowd.

Tournament sponsorships are available at all levels of giving and help to build Adopt-A-Family’s operating funds for the agency’s many programs. In the last fiscal year, Adopt-A-Family work with 2,771 families, including either directly ending or preventing episodes of homelessness for 612 families in Palm Beach County. The agency’s Project Grow afterschool program had a 98% success rate of students promoted to the next grade level – far exceeding the local and national average, and Adopt-A-Family achieved its 12th consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, a distinction less than 1% of nonprofits rate nationally.

Committee members for this event include: Frank Bresnan, Sean Bresnan, Jeff Preston, Joe Carron, Tom Frankel, Ned Grace, Joe LaRocca Jr, Gary Pohrer, and Matt Constantine.
