Knights of Columbus (KofC) Council 13483 at Saint Cecilia has opened registration for its annual “FORE” Our Community Golf Tournament in North Fort Myers. Proceeds from the event will help provide local children with scholarships to attend the early learning program at Child Care of Southwest Florida (CCSWFL).

The four-person scramble charity golf tournament features breakfast, a round of golf, an awards luncheon, a goody bag, and a silent auction and raffle. This year’s tournament is being held Saturday, Sept. 28 at Magnolia Landing Golf & Country Club, a semi-private 18-hole course designed by renowned architect Gordon G. Lewis that meanders through natural pine forests and oak groves.

“We are honored to be the primary beneficiary of this year’s golf tournament, which will raise crucial funds for deserving children in their most formative years of development,” said Chris Hansen, CEO of Child Care of Southwest Florida. “We recognize that not all children in Southwest Florida have the same educational opportunities. With 40% of proceeds benefitting our learning centers, we can help provide scholarships to working parents who might not otherwise be able to afford a high-quality early childhood education program.”

CCSWFL’s mission is to strengthen and enhance the lives of preschool children and their families through a quality and affordable early childhood education program. As a nonprofit provider with five learning centers in Lee and Hendry counties, Child Care of Southwest Florida partners with local charitable foundations, businesses and organizations to offer high-quality programs at a reduced rate to families that need it most.

The “FORE” Our Community Golf Tournament is hosted by Knights of Columbus Council 13483 at Saint Cecilia, a Catholic fraternal service organization in Fort Myers.

“At the heart of our actions as Knights of Columbus is our commitment to serving those in need,” said Grand Knight Steve Jansen of KofC #13483 Council at Saint Cecilia. “This year, we are proud to extend our support to CCSWFL which will create opportunities for at-risk children to access high-quality early learning programs. Through events like our charity golf tournament, we are honored to make a positive impact on the lives of these young learners.”

The cost for golf participants is $135 per golfer and includes golf, breakfast, lunch and tournament swag. Sponsorship opportunities are available, including $125 for a Hole Sponsor, $600 for Eagle Team Sponsor and $1,200 for Presenting Sponsor. Sponsorship packages include one golf foursome, meals, event signage and other public recognition.
