Help Goodwill while having fun on the golf course

May 20, 2012 by  

June seems to be the right time for golf tournaments in many communities throughout the United States. The Gulfstream Goodwill Golf Tournament will take place at Eastpointe Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens on June 7 from 6:45 am – 3:00 pm. This is expected to be an annual event with tickets priced at $125 per person or $500 for a foursome.

The ticket price includes 18 holes of golf, a hot breakfast, a t-shirt, beverages served on the course, raffles, and an awards luncheon. The awards will be given for golf play, with usual golf awards presented for longest putt, best score, or hole in one. All proceeds go to support Gulfstream Goodwill.

Sponsorships are available from $100 for a hole sponsorship to $2500 for a master sponsorship. The sponsors of a hole will have their names printed in the program and a tee sign, while the master sponsors’ name will be displayed on a banner for all to see. No doubt printing companies from the area, including nearby Jupiter, will be called upon to provide banner printing services to the organizers of the event.

The event is also a good networking opportunity for local area businesspeople, so smart golfers will store some business cards in their golf bag to hand them out on the course or at lunch and breakfast in the hope of promoting their name during the event.

Goodwill Industries helps people with intellectual and physical disabilities to become independent and self-sufficient members of society. They also help with job placement and day training.
