On Thursday October 15, 58 friends, patrons and supporters of the Swigwam Beach Bar on Corey Avenue in St. Pete Beach held a golf tournament for a local charity, St. Pete Beach Support Our Troops, Inc. The tournament was held at the beautiful Seminole Lakes Country Club and through the cooperation and outstanding efforts of Chairman Rob Williams and his volunteers the result was an incredible donation of $2,990.
Vice President of St. Pete Beach Support Our Troops, Terri Finnerty said, “The troops will have many boxes of food and hygiene products sent throughout the holidays. All of the funds will be used for postage which costs $15.95 per box. The thank you letters our organization continually receives from our brave men and women serving overseas let us know how much they appreciate that they have not been forgotten and our support, shown by the boxes we send, always makes them feel they are receiving a little bit of home from us. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate the Swigwam for sponsoring this great event. It was a fun day for all who participated and contributed so generously.”
The results of the tournament were:
Third place with a score of 64 were Mike Finnerty, Huge Forsyth, Frank Theisen and Danny Steiner
Second place with a score of 62 were Robbie Williams, Sean Louderback, Brant Bartlett, and Kerri Campbell
First place with a score of 60 were Dan Porter, Kirk Kristnesen, Jim Brock and Dick Nordgren
