7th Annual Boys & Girls Club of Collier County “Fore-the-Kids” Golf Tournament

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

The Golf Club at Fiddler’s Creek will be hosting the 7th Annual Fore-the-Kids Golf Tournament in support of the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County (BGCCC) on Saturday, November 6th. The mission of the Boys & Girls Club is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential; to help them build the skills that they will need to be successful in life. Since their inception in 1991, the BGCCC has been the only academically based youth development program in Collier County.

Originally serving around 35 youth a day in two rented classrooms, their organization has grown to serve over 1,500 youth daily at our main campus and three school based sites in the East Naples, Golden Gate communities. They are also helping to serve 900 children in Immokalee, the counties neediest community, in hopes of having a permanent facility there.

This tournament is about three very important things:
1. Providing support for the boys and girls and their families who rely on The Boys & Girls Club to enhance their lives now and for the future.
2. Being part of a quality golf competition and social experience.
3. Interacting with boys and girls who are members of The Boys & Girls Club.

Last year, the tournament raised over $100,000 for the BGCCC. This year the goal is to match or exceed that amount.
