Florida CCIM Chapter’s East Coast District will hold their 5th annual Charity Golf Tournament in late October at PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens and this year’s event promises to be the best yet!
“Last year, we had 144 golfers and raised nearly $100,000 for JDRF. Additionally, the tournament funded $4,000 towards our East Coast District perpetual scholarship, as well as raised $1,000 for a second scholarship we are awarding this year to an East Coast District member,” reports Terry Torres, CCIM, President, Broker, SLC Commercial Bird Realty of Vero Beach. “We aim to surpass those numbers this year with our wonderful community’s support,” he added.
Once again, the charge for success will be led by Tournament Chairperson, Neil Efron, CCIM who credits his entire team with the success of past years and sends many thanks to all of the participants for their generous support of this worthy cause to fund a cure for juvenile diabetes and support the CCIM East Coast District scholarship fund. “We have the best sponsors and best community partners with us,” the Executive Vice President of Noble Properties shared.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Founded more than 45 years ago by parents determined to find a cure for their children, it exists for the millions of people affected by this disease.
