Englewood, FL (May 5, 2014) - Neal Communities is a major co-sponsor of the 5th annual Semper Fi Golf Tournament with a donation of $10,000 for the third year in a row. The tournament, hosted by residents of Neal’s Boca Royale Golf & Country Club in Englewood, has a goal of bringing the aggregate amount raised over the past five years to $500,000.
“It’s always inspiring when a group of people in a community get together to make a difference,” said Pat Neal, President and CEO of Neal Communities. “We are thrilled to be a part of this tournament again, and we stand behind the residents of our communities in their efforts to improve the lives of others. The Semper Fi Fund is such a worthy organization because of all they do for the men and women who have served our country, and we want to do whatever we can to help,” said Neal.
“The entire community is behind this event, and every resident has been involved in some way, contributing to the success of this fundraiser. Whether they are volunteering, golfing, or donating their time and money, our community has really pulled together to make this a successful event,” said Frank Lugo, Chairman of the tournament and Boca Royale resident.
The tournament was held this morning, with registration at 9:30am and lunch served at 10am. The tournament tee-off was at 11am – participants will close the evening with cocktails at 5pm, followed by dinner, a raffle, live auction, and guest speakers from 6pm to 8:30pm.
