Registration details, sponsorship opportunities for golf tournament on Sept. 27, 2019


Brown & Brown Insurance of Southwest Florida has opened registration for its fourth annual Charity Golf Outing, which helps provide local children with scholarships to attend the early childhood education program at Child Care of Southwest Florida.

The four-person scramble golf tournament features a hearty breakfast, a round of championship golf, lunch and an awards presentation. This year’s tournament is being held Friday, Sept. 27 at West Bay Golf Club, a private 18-hole, 6,973-yard course in Estero that was masterfully renovated in 2018 by Fry Straka.

“Proceeds from the golf tournament help provide scholarships to working parents who might not otherwise be able to afford a high-quality early childhood education program,” said Chris Hansen, CEO of Child Care of Southwest Florida. “Every research study is in agreement that a strong early childhood education program is the difference-maker for children. We need to make sure that every child in Southwest Florida has an opportunity to learn the foundational academic, social and behavioral skills that will carry into elementary school and beyond.”

Child Care of Southwest Florida’s goal is to strengthen the lives of preschool children and their families through a quality and affordable early learning program.

The cost for golf participants is $150 per golfer, or $600 for a foursome. The fee includes golf, breakfast, lunch and tournament swag.

Sponsorship opportunities also are available and start at $150. Sponsorship packages include golf, meals, speaking opportunities and public recognition through marketing and advertising.
