The Lazydays Employee Foundation recently announced that it netted more than $105,000 during its 2nd Annual Golf Tournament.
“Awesome is an overused word, but perfectly appropriate in describing the passion for the cause and the response of the foundation’s supporters when we appeal for their help,” said Randy Lay, president of the Lazydays Employee Foundation, in a press release. “As with all of the fundraising activities conducted by the foundation, every dollar goes to support our mission, which is to measurably change the lives of children by instilling hope, inspiring dreams and empowering them with education.”
The golf tournament fundraiser event started with a silent auction for the Lazydays employees, and was followed by a kick-off dinner and silent auction for golfers and sponsors at the Lazydays Crown Club at the retailer’s complex in Seffner, Fla. The next day, 124 golfers arrived at the River Hills Golf and Country Club in Riverview for 18 holes of golf.
“We are very grateful to all of the sponsors and to the companies who donated items for our silent auction. Fundraising is never easy, but when it is for at-risk youth, people are willing to give, which makes our job a little easier,” says Janet Chiodi, the Lazydays Employee Foundation’s chair of fundraising.
