The foundation has been raising funds for Palm Beach County nonprofits for the past 18 years.
Wycliffe Golf and Country Club, Lake Worth, Fla., residents picked up their golf clubs on March 7 to raise funds for the Wycliffe Charities Foundation during its annual golf tournament. This year the nonprofit was able to raise about $60,000, which will go to 12 Palm Beach County nonprofits, including Quantum House and Hospice of Palm Beach County.
The foundation has been raising funds for Palm Beach County nonprofits for the past 18 years, reports the Sun Sentinel.
“To date we have raised nearly $1 million, all of which has gone to only nonprofits in Palm Beach County,” said Wycliffe Charities President Sue Webber.
The event featured three, four-member team golf tournaments. There are two men’s golf tournaments on the east and west courses and a women’s tournament at the club. During the luncheon guests could also bid on golf equipment, plants and memorabilia among other items during the silent auction. This year for the second time the event also featured a tennis tournament earlier in the week.
They even made the table centerpieces a part of charity, reports the Sentinel. Committee member Marjorie Goldner suggested that instead of having flowers, the centerpieces should be items off of Quantum House’s wish list such as cleaning products, household items and paper goods.
Quantum House is a nonprofit that provides a supportive home for families whose children are receiving medical treatment in Palm Beach County.
