Golfers at The Club at Grandezza in Estero raised $58,000 for the Harry Chapin Food Bank during the May 9 tournament.
One hundred golfers played and participated in a silent auction that featured golf trips, a python hunt, and a basketball autographed by Dunk City’s favorite Cinderella story, the FGCU men’s basketball team. The money translates into $348,000 the food bank can provide in food and services to those in need in Southwest Florida.
The Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores quality food for distribution to families in need through a network of 160 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties that provide food to more than 30,000 people monthly.
