NAPLES, Fla. - April 7, 2021 - PRLog -- When NFL punter Greg Montgomery died by suicide in August 2020, his family decided they would become a force to improve mental health services in Southwest Florida and beyond. They created The Gregory H. Montgomery Jr. Foundation for Ultimate Growth and will hold its first major fundraiser Fore Love & Wellness on April 29-30 at the Vineyards Country Club in Naples.

"It was either sit in the corner and suck my thumb, or plow forward.  With tremendous love and support from my amazing dad, Greg Sr. and awesome brother, Steve Montgomery...we are doing just that...plowing forward," says Margot Moran, Greg's sister, who is organizing the fundraiser.

Fore Love & Wellness, a play on the golf and tennis tournaments that anchor the event, includes a silent auction that's live now online and culminates with a live reception, in person and online. The emcee is fellow NFL punter Sean Landeta, a friend of Greg Montgomery and a famed player who logged 22 seasons in the league.

The auction includes rare sports memorabilia and a VIP Alabama Football Experience that comes with four tickets, four pregame sideline passes and lunch with one of the most famous coaches in football, Nick Saban, head football coach for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. Nonsports items include a getaway to Gasparilla Inn & Club on Boca Grande and another to The Breakers on Palm Beach.

The kick-off reception and silent auction finale take place 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, April 29, online and in person at the Vineyards. The golf tournament takes place 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 30 with a boxed lunch at the ninth hole. The round robin tennis, which also includes lunch, takes place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The awards wrap-up is at 2 p.m.
