For the first time, Community Health of South Florida, Inc.’s Glen Rice Celebrity Golf Tournament will tee off from the exclusive Deering Bay Yacht and Country Club. The May 16, 2022 golf tournament will help make a lasting impact on the lives of the children in our community, as the proceeds will benefit the opening of the Children’s Crisis Center.
With just under $517,000 left to raise, CHI is nearing a fundraising goal of $5.5 million to open the Children’s Crisis Center, an 11,400-square-foot state-of-the-art facility that will serve nearly 1,000 children annually experiencing mental health crises in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
“The golf tournament is a wonderful, two-way approach for connecting the community with the purpose of CHI,” said Victoria Castro, CHI’s Director of Development. “Every dollar counts toward getting us to the finish line.”
This year, attendees will enjoy the tournament at a picturesque golf course designed by Arnold Palmer that boasts stunning waterfront views and tropical wildlife in an exclusive part of Miami.
CHI supporters have come out every year to enjoy the Glen Rice Celebrity Golf Tournament as sponsors and attendees. For the second year in a row, One Digital has been the tournament’s presenting sponsor and for the third year in a row, Quest Diagnostics has also sponsored the tournament.
“These are corporate leaders who continue to show up for CHI year after year because they understand the importance of our mission,” said Blake Hall, President and CEO. “We could not be more grateful to them for their unwavering commitment to helping us get to the finish line and open the Children’s Crisis Center.”
This year has been dubbed the year of the superhero. The nonprofit is recognizing its donors and supporters for their superhuman support to make this project a reality.
That includes first-time sponsors as well, such as Tampa-based healthcare tech company DeliverHealth, which is heading out to the green this year.
“Everyone’s support goes a long way,” said Castro, noting how much progress CHI has made in the last two decades since the inception of the Glen Rice Celebrity Golf Tournament. “It’s going to be a turning point in getting us close to concluding the campaign. It’s our big push for 2022.”
Whether or not you’ll be taking a swing on the green at the tournament this year, there is still an opportunity to become a CHI Superhero for the Children’s Crisis Center. Every donation holds a superpower that will lead CHI to the completion of this important center.
The Glen Rice Celebrity Golf Tournament will take place on May 16, 2022, at the Deering Yacht and Country Club with registration starting at 10:30 a.m. and tee-off at 12:30 p.m. It will also include dinner and an awards ceremony!
