Lazydays RV Employee Foundation Raises More Than $100,000
to Benefit Local Youth at 7th Annual Golf Tournament
Nearly 150 golfers and more than 90 sponsors help
Lazydays create a brighter future for local children in need
Sponsors and golfers gathered at the Lazydays Crown Club on Thursday, May 4, for a kick-off dinner, silent auction and 50/50 raffle. As in previous years, all 36 team slots sold out for the 2017 Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament, which took place on Friday, May 5, at the River Hills Country Club in Valrico, Florida. Participating golfers played 18 holes and competed in putting contests, longest drive and closest-to-the-pin challenges, and hole-in-one shootouts with an RV as the top prize. An awards luncheon was held immediately following the tournament.
“We’d like to thank the many sponsors, vendors, manufacturers, players and volunteers who made this event possible. Their contributions, together with ongoing Lazydays employee donations, enable us to instill hope, inspire dreams and improve children’s lives,” said Katherine Kearney, chair of fundraising for the Lazydays Employee Foundation. “Following the success of this year’s tournament, I’m excited to say we’ll be announcing our next big project within the next month.”
The 8th Annual Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 4, 2018. Details and sponsorship/registration information will be posted at www.ldef.org/golf closer to the event.
