Volusia Law Firm To Benefit Golf Tournament Saturday In Daytona Beach For “Support Our Troops”
DAYTONA BEACH – Nearly 300 golfers are expected to participate in Saturday’s 11/8 4th annual Tijuana Flats Golf Tournament, a benefit for SupportOurTroops.org at LPGA International golf course, 1000 Champions Drive.
Rue & Ziffra – a recognized personal-injury law firm based in Port Orange – is this year’s main sponsor of the fundraiser, according to Josh Fogarty, owner of Tijuana Flats restaurant.
“Because of the generosity of businesses like Rue & Ziffra we are able to help Support Our Troops provide morale and well-being to active troops and their families,” Fogarty said. “They have been the title sponsor for this event since its inception.”
A 501(c) (3) public-purpose organization, Support Our Troops is the country’s largest contributor to the active military; surpassing the U.S.O. The organization offers programs that provide millions of dollars’ worth of goods and services to active-duty troops, including family assistance and kids camps.
Fogarty said presenting the event means a lot to him personally, as he has a brother serving in the Special Forces.
“We are eternally grateful for the support we receive and we hope to raise $20,000 this year from the 280 golfers who have registered,” he said. In addition to the golfers, 55 volunteers also are scheduled to help out at the daylong event. “So far, we have 280 golfers registered to play including four Rue & Ziffra foursomes,” he said.
Entry fee for the tournament – which includes an electric cart, continental breakfast, beverages and lunch – is $100 per person.
