Shadow Wood Italian Open raises $10K for Make-A-Wish

Nearly 100 members of Shadow Wood Country Club recently participated in the club’s 12th annual Italian Open golf tournament, dinner and auction, which raised more than $10,000 for the second-time beneficiary Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southwest Florida, surpassing last year’s total by $3,000.

Event organizers said 100 percent of funds raised during the member-sponsored event were donated to help grant the wishes of terminally ill children for once-in-a-lifetime trips. The auction portion of the event generated the majority of the proceeds, with unique items including a signed helmet by this year’s NFL Super Bowl champions, the Baltimore Ravens.
