Lazydays Golf Tourney Earns $101K for Charity
The Lazydays Employee Foundation announced that it raised more than $101,000 during its 3rd Annual Golf Tournament. According to a press release, proceeds from will go toward making a difference in the lives of at-risk children in Florida’s Tampa Bay area.
Lazydays said the success of the fundraiser is due to the generous support of 81 sponsors, including two principal sponsors: Bank of America and Greenberg Traurig LLP. Additional sponsors consisted of Auto Body Express, U.S. Foods, Crowe Horwath, several RV manufacturers, local banks and Lazydays vendors.
“We are truly blessed to have so many sponsors from our vendors and local community willing to contribute to our tournament, including Bank of America who has been our tournament sponsor for the past three years,” said Janet Chiodi, the Lazydays Employee Foundation’s chair of fundraising.
The golf tournament event began with a silent auction for Lazydays employees and was followed by a kickoff dinner and silent auction at Lazydays Crown Club for the golfers and sponsors. The next day, 134 golfers arrived at the River Hills Golf and Country Club in Riverview, Fla., for 18 holes of golf.
There were four hole-in-one prize opportunities, including a grand prize of a Fleetwood Storm motorhome sponsored by the Lazydays Employee Foundation and a Club Car Precedent i2 electric golf cart sponsored by Jeffrey Allen Inc.
Chiodi noted, “We had a small, but dedicated group of volunteers who worked tirelessly on this tournament, in addition to having a full-time job. The tournament was a lot of work, but well worth the effort.”
The Lazydays Employee Foundation will hold the next golf tournament fundraiser on May 2.
