Those participating in Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s 45th annual Golf Classic in memory of “Bebe” Rebozo on Monday, Mar, 19, not only will enjoy an exceptional golf experience, but also raise funds for the clubs’ youth development programs.
The event will take place at the Deering Bay Yacht and Country Club, 13610 Deering Bay Dr. in Coral Gables.
Chaired by Ben Walker from CCU Inc., the Golf Classic is expected to raise more than $110,000 for the clubs’ programs. This year’s event merges The Collection Audi quattro Cup, the largest amateur golf series in the world with over 79,000 golfers participating worldwide, and the “Bebe” Rebozo Memorial Golf Classic.
“Year after year, members of the community come together to help support Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade through our annual Golf Classic,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, executive director for Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade.
“This year’s event is certain to be a great one, and we look forward to raising funds to continue to provide the children of our community with high quality youth development programs.”
“The Audi quattro Cup immerses golfers in the absolute best of the brand,” said Ken Gorin, president and CEO of The Collection. “The Collection is proud to bring this unique experience to Miami and be part of something that really was created to celebrate the excitement of amateur golfing.”
Tournament registration will begin at 10 a.m. The tournament will kick off with a putting contest at 11 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at noon. All golfers will receive a gift bag, complimentary parking, green fees, cart, range balls, lunch, oncourse beverages and dinner at the awards banquet and ceremony at the Deering Bay Yacht and Country Club.
The 5:30 p.m. awards banquet and ceremony will feature a sit-down dinner, cocktails, plus a raffle and silent auction featuring an array of great items from vacation stays, to weekend loans on select Audis, to sports memorabilia. The dress code for the awards banquet and ceremony is country club casual.
The tournament’s winning team will be eligible to participate in the Audi quattro Cup U.S. Final to take place Aug. 23–26 at both The Links at Spanish Bay and Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, CA.
