The 29th Annual Vistakon North Florida Golf Classic was held at the beautiful TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course on March 12, 2014. The event has become critical to the success of Junior Achievement of North Florida—the net proceeds from this tournament equals the total paid for all of the professionally prepared material used in classrooms by the nearly 800 volunteers who will deliver JA programs this year.
For the past seven years the tournament has been held at TPC, home of THE PLAYERS Championship. Although the forecast called for rain the 132 golfers stayed dry and only had wind to contend with.
All participants and sponsors help JA reach more young people with its financial literacy, workforce preparation and entrepreneurship programs. The tournament sold out well in advance and many companies have been coming back to participate for years. “This country needs financially educated kids, young entrepreneurs and future business leaders! JA helps make this happen,” said Dave Roletter whose company, Sonoco Display and Packaging, is among the many sponsors JA can count on.
From brunch in the clubhouse to an afternoon of play, to awards, drinks and hors d’eourves later in the evening, the 2014 Vistakon North Florida golf tournament wrapped up another successful year. See you in 2015!
