Second WFLA Golf Charity Benefits Local Kids
- Category: Industry News
In addition to fostering camaraderie among not only association members but also the industry abroad—out-of-state sponsors included Able Limousine, SC Express Charleston, and Paris Limousines, while SC Express’ Laura and Jeff Canady and Mike Callahan of Able Limousine were among those who attended the event—the day serves as an opportunity to work with the Children’s Dream Fund again.
The Children’s Dream Fund “makes dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses living throughout West Central Florida,” and was the beneficiary of WFLA’s inaugural charity golf event last year. One child is selected by the fund to be the recipient of a dream come true: This year’s dream-come-true grantee was 5-year old Dylan from Bradenton, FL.
“The 2nd Annual WFLA Charity Golf Gala could not take place without the unbelievable support from our community,” said WFLA Vice President Ryan Hilberth of Book.Limo/RentalLimo. “It was a blast and, most importantly, we are making another dream come true for a seriously ill child within our community through our partnership with The Children's Dream Fund.”
By the end of the day, the association had raised $3,500 for the Children’s Dream Fund, which was immediately presented to the organization. The money was raised in part through an auction of items donated from the chauffeured ground transportation industry across the country—including a pass to the CD/NLA Show in Boston this October 13-16, which was won by WFLA President Jeremy Jenkins of His & Hers Limousines.
