Ducklings Travel’s Charity Golf Tournament
September 4, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm$150 – $500
If you haven’t yet heard of Ducklings Travel, prepare to be inspired! This local registered nonprofit was founded in 2018 by Estero High School senior Taylor Bouchard to help defray expenses of young surgery patients who must travel a great distance for specialized medical procedures — children like her. This exceptional organization is hosting their first annual golf tournament at Spring Run Golf Club on September 4, 2021.
Ducklings Travel recently partnered with Golisano Children’s Hospital and has already helped six families from SWFL in the past three months. “This golf tournament is next on the list.” said Bouchard. “Spring Run Charitable Foundation had actually contacted Ducklings Travel around the same time that our board members and I had mentioned hosting a golf tournament. After meeting some of the residents and working with the Spring Run Charitable Foundation, I knew that I wanted our annual golf tournament to be held at Spring Run.”
The tournament is scramble style and begins with a shotgun start promptly at 8:30 a.m. Register for the event as an individual for $150 or as a foursome for $500. Spring Run Golf Course is an Audubon Certified Golf Course, with beautiful landscaping and scenic views of native wildlife. Registration includes lunch provided by Spring Run Golf Club, in addition to golf and a raffle ticket. Notable sponsors such as B103.9, Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Bonita Springs and NBC2 News will support Ducklings’ efforts to meet their fundraising goal of $10,000. Registration is due by Friday, August 27, 2021.
The mission of Ducklings Travel is to aid families in need of financial travel assistance for the treatment of non-life threatening, yet debilitating, medical conditions. Financial assistance is offered to ensure no child is denied access to distant specialized medical attention due to travel expenses. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go towards advancing the mission of Ducklings Travel.
