Delray Beach, FL (December 14, 2016) - Gleneagles Country Club welcomed more than 100 First Responders from Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue for the 7th Annual Emergency Services Appreciation Day on Thursday, October 27, 2016.  The event started with a complimentary golf clinic at 12:00pm featuring Top 100 Golf Teacher and PGA Professional Scott Munroe.

Gleneagles donated the entire day to honor the local emergency service workers who protect, serve, and respond to emergency and non-emergency calls in our community. The club invited all emergency services personnel who are members of a station that responds to calls in Gleneagles to participate in the event at no charge.  

Gleneagles Director of Golf, Joe DeMino, and Rusty Lamm, Corporal for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office are integral in bringing the tournament to Gleneagles each year. Two of Gleneagles members: Eric Sands, a retired Captain in FDNY who served in 9/11, and his friend Alan Caplan, assist in organizing the day by visiting the local first responder stations to distribute information about the event.

“It is truly an honor to organize this day for those who risk their lives to protect and serve our community every day. This is our way of thanking them,” says DeMino.

“The commitment of any emergency service worker to protect, honor and serve their community is a thankless job, however, we are honored to once again welcome our local stations for a great day of lunch and golf at Gleneagles.” remarks Sands.
