2nd Annual Golf Classic To Benefit Harry Chapin Food Bank

Golfers in Southwest Florida are invited to participate in the second annual Harry Chapin Food Bank golf classic being held at Grandezza Golf and Country Club, Estero, on Wednesday, May 9.  The four-player scramble shotgun start begins at 1:30 p.m., with registration beginning at 12:30.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Harry Chapin Food Bank.

Golfers, sponsors at all levels, and silent auction items are all needed for the event.  The $125 cost per player includes green fees with cart, awards, and dinner.   Grandezza is a challenging course that will test golfers of every ability.  Every dollar raised at this event enables the food bank to distribute $6 worth of food to those in need.

Imagine yourself surrounded by the natural beauty of the Club at Grandezza, while simultaneously helping to provide food for many individuals in SW Florida facing difficult times.  If you’re not a golfer, there are many ways to support this event without actually playing, including auction donations, volunteering, and a variety of sponsorships.

Co-chairs of the golf classic are JoAnna Bradshaw and Nancy Klaas.  To register for the classic, to obtain sponsorships, to donate silent auction items, or to be a volunteer, contact Chris Robinson at chrisrobinson@harrychapinfoodbank.org or go to www.harrychapinfoodbank.org  for additional information.

The Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores quality food for distribution to families in need through a network of more than 150 local nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties, who provide food to more than 30,000 people monthly.  Over 1 million pounds of food are distributed monthly.  For every dollar donated, about $6 in food value goes back to the community.  In the past fiscal year, The Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 12.5 million pounds of food and other grocery products; this was a 31% increase over the previous year.
