Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches Raised Exponential Amounts for Those In Need
PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL – June 6, 2017 – It was a memorable day on the greens as Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches hosted their 6th Annual Better Ball Golf Tournament. The eventtook place on May 4, 2017 at the nationally recognized Dye Preserve Golf Club in Jupiter.
100 players enjoyed an afternoon of lunch, 18 holes of golf, mouth-watering hors d'oeuvres, and an award ceremony to wrap up the festivities. Taking home the top honors (and plenty of bragging rights) were Ken Carl and Cory Clement.
Congratulations to the tournament committee—Jeff Preston, Sean Bresnan, Frank Bresnan, Thomas Frankel, Gary Pohrer, Joe Carron, Joe LaRocca Jr., and Ned Grace for organizing such a successful event! Thanks to the support of the players, and tournament sponsors, more than $145,000 was raised to support programs that provide housing, rental assistance, and supportiveservices to families experiencing homelessness and families at risk of being homeless.
“We are thrilled with the outcome of our tournament,” shared Matthew Constantine, CEO of Adopt-A-Family. “Funds raised at this event help us work with families in our community – returning them from crisis back to stability. We couldn’t do this without the incredible support of our golf committee and donors. I am grateful for all they do for our organization.”
