TAMPA, FLA. – PulteGroup’s West Florida Division is thrilled to announce that its annual golf tournament has raised $189,900 in support of the Children’s Home Network of Tampa Bay. The money generated from the event, which was held this year at the Avila Golf & Country Club, will be used for different projects on the Children’s Home Network campus including the Pulte Promise Center.
Since launching the tournament in 2016, PulteGroup and their trade partners have raised more than $775,000 for the Children’s Home Network. The proceeds have funded after school programs, a new computer lab and residential treatment programs for children who are victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment.
“This is our most successful tournament to date, and we could not be more proud of our team and everyone who participated,” said Sean Strickler, President of Pulte’s West Florida division. “We are inspired and honored to have the ability to help at-risk children rebuild trust with adults, recognize and develop their individual talents and reframe their vision for future success.”
This year’s event included 120 golfers. The event Diamond Sponsor was Two Rivers by Eisenhower Property Group, and the four Platinum Sponsors were: Edmonson Electric & Security, GeoPoint Surveying Inc., RIPA & Associates and ROSEN Materials.
“It is difficult to find the right words to convey our thanks to the Pulte team,” said Frank Massaro, Chief of Development at CHN. “This year’s results were inspiring and impactful, and we could not imagine a better, more dedicated team of people. We are beyond grateful for your impact on the Children’s Home Network.”
Children’s Home Network began in 1892 when founder Carrie Hammerly began aiding orphaned and abandoned children in Tampa. Hammerly sparked an organization on a mission to unlock the potential of at-risk children and families by providing compassionate and effective services that create opportunities for everyone to succeed.
Today, the Children’s Home Network serves nearly 25,000 children and adults each year with values that focus on respect, dignity, trust and compassion. They strive to become the leader in innovative programs and services in the field of child and family well-being, and as an exemplary model for the governance, management and operation of nonprofit entities.
