World-renowned golf players and local teams recently came together to raise more than $160,000 at the 19th Annual Monique Burr Foundation for Children, Inc. Pro Am Golf Tournament. This year’s event marks the launch of the newly-named tournament. Formerly known as the Jinglebells Pro Am, the event was presented by AT&T and is known as the Monique Burr Foundation for Children Champions for Child Safety Pro Am. Held at the Palencia Club, the premier charity golf tournament featured golf pros alongside Northeast Florida golfers.
“This signature event is very important to the Monique Burr Foundation and we are grateful for the overwhelming response and support,” said Executive Director Lynn Layton. “Golfers, sponsors, participants and volunteers all came together to make this tournament a success. Their dedication to promote MBF Child Safety Matters™, an educational program designed to prevent bullying and child abuse throughout Florida, is meaningful.”
