WCI Communities golf promotion supports Harry Chapin Food Bank, United Way

By Staff | May 25, 2011

David Fry, CEO & President of WCI Communities, staff, family and friends supports Harry Chapin Food Bank.

WCI Communities has partnered with the Harry Chapin Food Bank and United Way to create a unique funding opportunity: Supporters who donate $150 to the food bank through the www.WCIGolf.com website will receive a complimentary foursome at one of five WCI golf courses in Southwest Florida.

Last year’s effort helped raise $22,276 for the Harry Chapin Food Bank and was leveraged into more than $133,000 in food product to enable the organization to access donated items from a variety of partners.

The complimentary foursome certificates are valid for play June 1 through Sept. 30. Tee time reservations are available two days in advance at the following WCI golf courses:

• Pelican Preserve Golf Club in Fort Myers (www.PelicanPreserve.com)

• Raptor Bay Golf Club in Bonita Springs (www.RaptorBayGolfClub.com)

• The Colony Golf & Country Club in Bonita Springs (www.TheColonyGolfCC.com)

• Tiburón in Naples (www.TiburonWCI.com)

• Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club in Naples (www.HammockBayGCC.com)

“We all have heard about the increase in the number of people needing assistance with feeding their families,” said David Fry, president and CEO of WCI Communities. “Many are single parents struggling to feed their kids, those in our community who live below the poverty level, and the elderly, who often have to choose between buying medicine or food. It made sense for WCI to utilize our resources to help raise money for this worthy cause.”

The Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores quality food for distribution to families in need through a network of more than 170 local non-profit agencies in Lee, Collier, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties, who provide food to more than 30,000 people monthly. In the past fiscal year, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed more than nine million pounds of food and other grocery products.

United Way is a volunteer organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all people in the community through fundraising, fund distribution, community building, volunteer advancement and information and referral.
