Miracle Charity Golf Classic set to tee off Aug. 23

By Staff | Aug 4, 2009

Slicers and hackers or those that are more than just weekend golfers are invited to play in the 10th Annual Miracle Charity Golf Classic on Sunday, Aug. 23 at Pelican Preserve in Fort Myers. The classic benefits the Storm Eye Institute.

The classic tees off with a continental breakfast and registration from 7 to 8:15 a.m. The shotgun start begins at 8:30 a.m. with an awards luncheon to follow. Golfers receive beverages on the course, 18 holes of golf, lunch, an autographed hole sign per team, goodie bag and golf shirt, all presented by Snead Cataract.

Golfers will also have a chance to bid on some spectacular silent auction items and enter a raffle for other great prizes. The fee is $600 per foursome.

“The response we have gotten in the first nine years of our golf tournament has been spectacular,” said Miracle General Manager Steve Gliner. “Everyone has a charity that’s important to them and the Storm Eye Institute is not only close to the Miracle, but especially our ownership group of Mike Veeck and Marv Goldklang.”

The mission of the the Storm Eye Institute is to drive the research that will provide preventions, treatments and cures for people affected by retinal degenerative diseases.

Golfers will enjoy the tournament in typical Miracle fashion with whacky holes throughout the course. The zany holes will test the golfers ability to combine golf with a little bit of fun and baseball.

For more information or to sign up for the Miracle Charity Golf Classic, presented by Snead Cataract, call the Miracle box office at 239-768-4210.
