The event, set for April 20th at Madison Green Country Club in Royal Palm Beach, will be the biggest and best tournament yet for the nonprofit organization who continues to grow year after year to help more people than ever.
“We are thrilled to have grown our event over the past few years,” shared Owen O’Neill, executive director of Clinics Can Help. “As our organization grows and we serve even more people, our tournament grows as well. This year, we’ve got fun additions to be announced to the day of tournament activities, and even some surprises for the female participants. I am confident that our golfers and supporters will have an incredible day!”
