April 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida’s second annual golf fundraiser will be held Saturday, May 26 at Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Fort Myers. Last years tournament successfully raised $8,000 in gross proceeds to benefit the agency’s programs and services and Goodwill is hoping to raise even more at this year’s Memorial Day weekend event.

“If this year’s goal of $10,000 is met, Goodwill could provide 400 clothing vouchers for people in need of job interview and work clothes,” says the agency’s Vice President of Communication and Development, Carolyn Johnson. “That amount could also present 43 future entrepreneurs with small business training courses or give 20 L.I.F.E. Academy students a paid internship in Goodwill stores and offices. It could also offer 18 months of income-subsidized housing for a person with a physical disability.”

The Goodwill Golf Classic will feature multiple contests such as Closest to the Pin, 50/50 raffle, and putting and longest drive competition. If the Hole in One challenge has a winner, they will receive a Pebble Beach golf getaway vacation for 2, including roundtrip airfare, valued at $7,500. The cost to play is just $50 for a single player, $200 for a 4-person team and $100 to sponsor a hole. Last year’s winner was the foursome representing Aqua Systems of Fort Myers, scoring a -13 in the best-ball scramble.
