First Tee Benefits from NAIOP Golf Tournament

NAIOP of Northeast Florida held their annual golf tournament on September 28th at San Jose Country Club.  One of our feature events on the course is the “Charity Long Drive to Benefit First Tee”.  This is our 3rd year of holding this special drive and it has been the best year for donations.  First Tee brings two young students out to the course to drive golfers ball on a long par 5.  This year we had this set up on #11 where Wayne Automatic Fire Sprinklers sponsored this event. We encouraged players to purchase thier long drive through early registration, when they checked in for golf and out on the course.  We had a full field and most players took advantage of these students great skill.  We did give First Tee a 200 yard start so many groups had their tee shot nearly make it to the green so there were some unbelievable scores on this hole.  At the end of the day we were able to donate $1320.00 to First Tee.
