Children's Dream Fund The debut WFLA Scramble Charity Golf Tournament benefited and partnered with The Children’s Dream Fund Saint Petersburg, Fla. — The West Florida Limousine Association (WFLA) held its inaugural WFLA Scramble Charity Golf Tournament June 24 at the Pasadena Yacht & Country Club to benefit local charity The Children’s Dream Fund, in partnership to help make terminally ill children’s dreams come true within their community.

The Children’s Dream Fund has been making children’s dreams come true in the Tampa Bay area for the past 38 years; on average, it costs about $3,500 to grant a single wish. Half of the proceeds from the event were donated to The Children’s Dream Fund on behalf of the WFLA.

“It was a fun day of golf with great folks from the industry,” said WFLA President Jeremy Jenkins of His & Hers Limousines, which has been donating limousine services to The Children’s Dream Fund for the past decade. “It’s always a good feeling to give back to children in need.”

Title sponsors included Nations Bus Sales, PIC Insurance, Rental Limo, His & Hers Limousines, Book.limo, and Fleet Pro Capital. Longest drive was sponsored by Brevard Executive Transportation, closest to the pin was sponsored by Chauffeur Driven, and the putting competition was sponsored by VIP Transportation Group. Additional hole sponsors included DELL, RRL Insurance, A1A, LMC Group, the CFLA, Showtime Transportation, Olympus Limo, Create-A-Card, Black Pearl, Ancient Essense and Spark.

Hilberth The inaugural event raised $3,500 to make a child’s wish come true WFLA Vice President Ryan Hilberth of Rental Limo and Book.limo and Jenkins presented the charity with a check for $3,500 to fully sponsor a child’s dream in the near future.

“The favorite part for the children is always the limo ride,” said Cynthia Lake Farrell, executive director of The Children’s Dream Fund as she addressed those in attendance for the awards ceremony after the golf tournament. The charity’s Director of Events Hannah Kaye also attended dinner and heralded the event a great success.

“We set a lofty goal to make our first dream come true on behalf of the WFLA and we could not have pulled this off without the support of all of our generous sponsors, our golfers and our amazing volunteers who helped make sure this event ran as smooth as possible,” said Hilberth, who served as the director of this first-year golf tournament. “We want to thank The Children’s Dream Fund for partnering with us, and here’s to making many more dreams come true.”
