For the sixth consecutive year, concessionaires of the 69th annual Youth Fair & Exposition are coming together to organize the sixth annual Red Thornberry & Youth Fair Scholarship Fund Golf Classic, as well as the sixth annual Surf ‘N Turf Fest on Monday, Mar. 30.
The Golf Classic will begin at 10 a.m. at the International Links Miami Melreese Golf Course, located at 1802 NW 37 Ave. The event will feature a scramble format golf tournament featuring 18 holes of championship golf, boxed lunch, fun bag for all players and door prizes.
The golf tournament is named in memory of Red Thornberry, a game vendor at the Youth Fair beginning in 1993. Thornberry began his career in the game industry in 1947 and especially loved the Youth Fair. His son, Billy Thornberry, now carries on in his father’s footsteps as one of the Youth Fair’s current game vendors.
Following the golf tournament, the Surf ‘N Turf Fest will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. at Netterfield’s Food Court located at the fairgrounds, 10901 Coral Way. The Surf ‘N Turf Fest will include a lobster and steak dinner; live music and great company, and the cost is $40 per person. For more information on event details, to purchase tickets and how you and/or company or organization can contribute, visit www.fairexpo.com under the Participate Tab or call 305-223-7060.
Both events are sponsored by the men and women who are part of the 2020 Youth Fair Concessionaires’ Team, whose goal is to give back to the Miami-Dade County community and assist in The Fair’s mission to support education, showcase youth achievement and promote Miami-Dade County’s agriculture industry. All net proceeds benefit the Youth Fair & Exposition’s Scholarship Fund. -more-
