The Florida Citrus Sports Foundation MVPs held its primary fundraiser of 2012, the Orlando MINI Open presented by Roetzel & Andress and UnitedHealthcare, at CityWalk’s Hollywood Drive-In Golf at Universal Orlando Resort yesterday. Players dressed the part, digging out their knickers and argyle socks for the special occasion.
The event featured a miniature golf tournament, on-course hospitality, an auction, raffle and prizes. The big news of the night, however, was the benefit provided to the Foundation and the youth of Central Florida it supports.
The first sell-out in the event’s three-year history, over $32,000 was generated in participant revenue, while the event totaled over $58,000 in combined revenue between entry fees, raffles, auctions and sponsorships.
At the end of the night the scores were tallied and the Massey Services #1 team of Paul Giordano, Clyde King, Ed Dougherty and Tony Massey combined for the lowest team total at 33-under par (135), while Tony Massey took top individual honors at 9-under (33). The Best Dressed Team Award went to The Putt Pirates (Dr. Brett Zak, Dr. Tim Lane, Michael Weinberg and Ryan Mitchell) while Zak took home the prize for the best-dressed individual.
Its chief Foundation fundraiser now in the books, Florida Citrus Sports, its members and Central Florida residents are now looking ahead to the annual Feast on the 50 presented by UnitedHealthcare and BMO Harris Bank. Food, fun and family take center stage on the field of Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium with members admitted for free, $15 advanced tickets for non-members and $25 the day of the event, which kicks off at 5:30 p.m. on October 18.
