On a picture-perfect day, 116 golfers teed off for a good cause at the exclusive Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club on April 3, 2023, for the CHI Golf Tournament. Celebrity guests and sponsors helped to raise an impressive $108,429 for the Children’s Crisis Center. It was a day full of fun, friendly competition, and giving back.

Blake Hall, President and CEO of Community Health of South Florida, Inc., kicked off announcements before guests made their way onto the breathtaking 18-hole, Arnold Palmer signature style golf course.

“Welcome to the 2023 CHI Golf Tournament!” he said. “I want to thank each of you for being here today.”

“Mental health and wellness support for young people is so key. After Covid, mental health statistics have gone through the roof,” Mourning said. “Providing that support is going to help the advancement of young people as they continue this tough journey in life.”

Throughout the day, celebrities and guests enjoyed lunch and refreshing drinks on the course as they competed for the top spot.

Another highlight of the event was the dinner awards ceremony. Guests gathered inside to enjoy a delicious meal and refreshments as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the tournament were announced. A few lucky golfers also won raffle prizes as a “thank you” for their considerable donations.

Glen Rice gave the closing speech of the night. He reflected on the accomplishments that CHI has achieved and praised the organization’s commitment to providing support for children in the community.

“From day one, I have absolutely loved what CHI is doing for the people in the community, the young people, and the underprivileged,” he said. “As long as they continue doing what they are doing, I will always support.”
