CLEARWATER, Florida, March 5, 2018 — Piper Fire Protection will be hosting its 4th Annual Footgolf Tournament Friday, April 6, at Largo Municipal Golf Course. The creative event — substituting soccer for golf balls — again will benefit the Children’s Burn Foundation of Florida (CBFF). Sponsors include Brown & Brown Insurance, Ansul, Core & Main, Wallace Welch & Willingham, HikVision, Solutions Insurance, R.S. Williams & Associates, Reliable Sprinklers, Silmar Electronics, Brooks Equipment and Ferguson Fire & Fabrication.
President Chris Johnson noted, “The purpose in forming our ‘Piper Gives Back’ Committee was to help create opportunities to involve our employees in volunteer work and directly give back to the community that has helped our company thrive over the years. This dedicated team of employees is focused on ways to benefit local non-profits, whether financially or by physical labor. Organizing the Footgolf Tournament to support the children attending the CBFF Camp Tequesta isn’t just to benefit the organization and the children but also to bring awareness to Piper Fire’s overall goal as a company – that the fire protection industry’s main objective is to save lives.
“Our Annual Footgolf Tournament last year produced a record $5,400 in donations that we hope to exceed again. Piper is proud to be part of the fight to give these children who survived serious burn injuries their lives back to realize their dreams of a better tomorrow.”
Check-in begins at 5:00 pm with a Shotgun Start at 6:00pm at the Largo Course, 12500 Vonn Road.
