The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce has announced sponsors, remaining registration opportunities and new fundraising details for its annual Golf Classic, taking place Friday, Nov. 4 in Fort Myers.
Traditionally, the annual event is a fundraiser for the Greater Fort Myers Chamber, which is working to restore and reopen its office after flood damage due to Hurricane Ian. This year, the Chamber is expanding its fundraising to support fellow beach chambers that have been impacted by the storm. The Chamber is dedicating $100 from every foursome sold to the Fort Myers Beach Chamber and the Sanibel & Captiva Islands chambers to support in their recovery from Hurricane Ian.
“Since Hurricane Ian, the Chamber has been working hard to check on businesses, inform members with important information and advocate on their behalf to federal and state agencies who are assisting in recovery. The Golf Classic supports the Chamber in these efforts while also helping us physically rebuild,” said Michele Hoover, chair of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce. “We are extending our fundraising this year to rally alongside our fellow chambers of commerce on Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel and Captiva whose physical buildings and membership have been devastated.”
The Golf Classic will be held on the greens of the Fort Myers Country Club, located at 3591 McGregor Blvd. in Fort Myers. Check-in opens at 10:30 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at noon.
A limited number of foursomes are still available for the event. Registration is $199 for individual golfers and $799 per group of four and includes cart and green fees, food from “Taste of the Chamber” restaurants along the course, boxed lunch and beverages throughout the day. Corporate foursomes are also available at $999 for four people with all the benefits of the standard foursome registration in addition to two mulligans, $20 in prize drawing tickets, 5 feet of golf rope and other promotional materials provided to each golfer.
Presenting sponsors of the Golf Classic are B2 Technology Solutions and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank. Additional event sponsors include Coca-Cola Beverages Florida, Crowne Plaza Fort Myers at Bell Tower, Florida Gulf Coast University, Fort Myers Brewing Company, Hedberg Wealth Management, Image One Facility Solutions, Knight Barry Title Group, Midwest Cartz, Omni Title of Southwest Florida, Orthopedic Specialists of Southwest Florida, Scanlon Auto Group, Solomon & Hoover CPAs, PLLC, Southern Oak Wealth Management, Suncoast Beverage Sales, Suncoast Credit Union, TECO Peoples Gas and Val Ward Cadillac.
