Travel to Fort Walton Beach Florida to Take a Drive for the Annual Children in Crisis Charity Golf Tournament
The charity golf tournament that brings a little more sunshine to the Sunshine State every year is the Children in Crisis Charity Golf Tournament at the Fort Walton Beach Golf Course, which is coming up on its 13th year March 15, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
This widely known charity golf tournament raises funds to support Children in Crisis’ (CIC) Children’s Neighborhood, a local nonprofit that “establishes hopes and provides a home for the abused, neglected and abandoned children” of the Fort Walton Beach community. The first emergency shelter in northwest Florida for children removed from an unsafe environment on short notice, CIC has provided a safe home to about 100 children each year since 2008. That totals to nearly 1,000 children that experience nearly 100,000 days and nights in a safe environment within CIC’s campus of an emergency shelter, five family foster homes and Opportunity Home, including eight studio apartments for young adults that age out of foster care.
Proceeds from the Children in Crisis Charity Golf Tournament will help to feed, clothe and care for the children housed at Children’s Neighborhood.
All golfers will enjoy lunch at the 11 a.m. check-in, more food and drinks at stops along the course and heavy hors d’oeuvres and a wine tasting at the awards ceremony at 5 p.m. at the club house; tee-off is at noon. To add to the challenge (and fundraising), there will also be a hole-in-one prize, door prizes and silent auction and more. All participants receive a custom CIC Charity Golf Tournament shirt.
The Fort Walton Beach Golf Course is located at 1955 Lewis Turner Blvd. Tournament fees are $100 per player and $400 per team.
