The proceeds will fund a variety of programs designed to empower local children with educational and life-changing opportunities. Major partners included Bank of America, Greenberg Traurig LLP and M&T Bank.

Similar to previous years, all 36 team slots sold out for the 2019 Lazydays Employee Foundation Golf Tournament, which took place on Friday, May 10th at the River Hills Country Club in Valrico, Fla. The tournament golfers played 18 holes and competed in putting contests, longest drive and closest-to-the-pin challenges and hole-in-one shootouts with a Winnebago Intent motorhome as the top prize. An awards luncheon was held following the tournament.

“We graciously thank the many sponsors, vendors, manufacturers, players and volunteers who make this event possible,” President of the Lazydays Employee Foundation Joe Myers says. “Their contributions, together with ongoing Lazydays employee donations, enable us to instill hope, inspire dreams and improve children’s lives. Most recently, we were able to build a gateway home to support Bridging Freedom’s efforts to provide long-term treatment to young women rescued from sex trafficking.”
