Stuart-April 4th, 2017– The weather was perfect and the generosity was flowing. Treasure Coast Estate buyers, Andrew Hunt, and the Yacht & Country club partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties (BBBSPBMC) for our 21st annual Big Golf Tournament. The Big tournament typically held in conjunction with the Taste of Martin County was a standalone event this year due to the Taste being changed to October 10, 2017 in its new location, the Stuart Jet Center.
The festivities were located at the scenic private Yacht & Country Club in Stuart. Golfers enjoyed a brunch, barbeque dinner, along with refreshments on the course, and goody bags filled with gift certificates to Gaffords, golf balls, Hi-Tide sunglasses, and much more. Mr. Laird Smith was the proud winner of our live auction a Foursome to the Medalist Golf Club. Thanks to the generosity from local businesses and the golfers who participated in this year’s event BBBSPBMC was able to raise funds to support mentoring programs that help change children’s lives for the better, forever.
