Preparations are underway for the 9th Annual Parkland Buddy Sports Golf Classic, and there are still opportunities for the community to participate as a sponsor, donor, or golfer.
Since 2002, Parkland Buddy Sports has organized sports programs and events for children, age four and older, with special needs and volunteering opportunities for students living in South Florida. The nationally recognized nonprofit organization creates an empowering, challenging, and caring environment emphasizing having fun and making friends.
“The golf classic is our signature fundraiser, supporting our mission to provide fee-free sports programming for our players and award scholarships for our graduating student volunteers who are seeking post-secondary opportunities,” said Parkland Buddy Sports President Bob Mayersohn.
Players in teams of four will play on Friday, May 14, at the Boca Lago Golf & Country Club for $150 per player, or $550 for a foursome, which includes golf, tournament prizes, a gift bag, and dinner at Boca Lago’s VIP dining room.
Specialty holes are available, including a hole-in-one par three, where golfers try to win amazing prizes. A dinner and awards banquet, including a silent auction and raffle, complete the event.
“We invite the community to join us and have some fun while supporting our inclusive programs for children and young adults with special needs,” said Mayersohn.
