Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club’s three-day 20th anniversary celebration raised $36,000 for One Hopeful Place and Emerald Coast Honor Games.
“It was a huge weekend for Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club,” said Dwight Lorenzen, managing partner of Regatta Bay Investors Ltd., the owner of Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club. “The community at large and the homeowners of Regatta Bay came out to support in a huge way for the charities and the event itself.
For those that don’t live in the neighborhood, we were very excited to introduce them to both the golf and the Regatta Bay lifestyle where you can live, shop, dine, play, and never leave Regatta Bay,” he added.
Hosted from March 15 through March 17 at Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club, the 20th anniversary celebration drew crowds of more than 300 in support of One Hopeful Place and Emerald Coast Honor Games. The funds raised by the 20th anniversary celebration will provide One Hopeful Place with $27,000 to help in their endeavor to build more facilities to aid the homeless and will provide $9,000 to help Emerald Coast Honor Games in raising funds for defenders of the front line.
The celebratory weekend ended with the Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club 20th Anniversary Celebration Celebrity Pro Am Golf Tournament March 17. More than 200 members of the community, including celebrities, joined together to participate in the charity golf tournament as sponsors, tournament players, food and beverage providers, and volunteers. Throughout the course, golfers enjoyed libations and food.
“I cannot say enough about how lucky we are here at Regatta Bay. We have an amazing golf course and a community that really shines for an event of this magnitude,” said Regatta Bay Golf & Yacht Club Head Professional Mike Giammaresi. “There was an exciting atmosphere all weekend across the property; it made for a fun experience that will be remembered all year long. An event like this does not happen without the support of amazing sponsors, incredibly gracious celebrities, and a first-class staff. They all were an absolute privilege to work with, and I look forward to showcasing our venue for future events.”
