The Frank Rostron Golf Invitational

Every year, the Frank Rostron Golf Invitational raises money for local charities. The event choosing a new charity every year to support. This year, the board decided to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida.

About The Yearly Event

This is only the third year the event has been held but it already has a wonderful following and set up. It was first held in Naples and the tradition continued this year. Of course, there is a golf invitational as the main event but there is so much more to the fundraiser. In addition to the golf invitational, there are other events such as a get together before the event and a nice dinner as the event finale. At each hole on the golf course, there is a brand new car (there was a Bentley, Jaguar, and more last year) as the hole-in-one prize. There are gift bags for all of the players with wonderful gifts that are golf themed as well as some other items. Each gift bag was valued at over $350 last year and they plan on increasing that amount every year.

About The Charity

This year, all of the proceeds of the event went to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida. This organization helps to grant the wishes of children that are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases. For these children, these wishes are the highlight of their lives. The organization means to bring joy, happiness, and laughter to these children so they can escape from their disease for a short amount of time. On average, in the United States, a wish is granted for one of these children every 37 minutes. These wishes can completely change the lives of these children by changing their outlook and giving them hope.
