Family Promise of Greater Brandon to Host Tee Off in Tuscany Fundraiser
Indoor Putt-Putt Golf Event & Fundraiser Set for Thursday, November 6, 2014, 7 – 10 pm
BRANDON, FL – Travel to Tuscany for a few hours Thursday, November 6, 2014 when Family Promise of Greater Brandon hosts its fall fundraiser, Tee Off in Tuscany, an indoor putt-putt golf event and fundraiser. The event will be hosted from 7 – 10pm at The Barn at Winthrop, 11349 Bloomingdale Avenue, Riverview, FL 33578.
The Barn at Winthrop will be transformed into Tuscany for an evening while putt-putt gold players vie for prizes. Golf skills are not needed for this indoor tournament – just the ability to have fun and help Family Promise put the FUN in FUNdraising! Players will play a tournament in foursomes just like regular golf. Spectators will cheer on their favorites to win some cool prizes!
“I’m excited about this event,” remarked Kathy Brogli, executive director. “Putt-putt golf is always fun, and almost everyone can play. Our wine and chocolate event should be a big draw, as will our awesome entertainment from Ella Chadwell and the Brandon Ballet.” Everyone who attends will help turn the greens into gold, so Family Promise can continue helping local homeless families obtain stable housing and escape homelessness.
Each player will receive a goody bag and drink tickets. There will also be door prizes given, and participants can experience our wine and chocolate event. Players and spectators alike will be able to bid on silent auction items.
“Since we opened our doors in May of this year, we’ve been able to assist four families in obtaining independent housing,” said Deborah Humphrey, board president. “Our success is due, in large part, to the gracious support of the community and our partners. Your participation in Tee Off in Tuscany will enable us to serve many more families in the months to come.”
Purchase tickets – $50 per person for players and $25 per person for spectators – at https://teeoffintuscany2014.eventbrite.com. Attire is business casual. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of the players in your foursome.
