Golf tourney raises more than $600K to fight child abuse

The fourth annual All-Star Children’s Foundation’s Celebrity Gala & Golf Tournament recently celebrated a successful fourth year of raising funds to prevent child abuse, neglect and abandonment.

Sponsoring the event again this year were the Stanford Group Company and the Longboat Key Club, which hosted the weekend’s festivities.

Early totals put the funds raised from this Gala & Golf Tournament at more than $600,000. The highlight of Saturday’s golf tournament was a clinic by PGA Champions Tour golfer Jim Thorpe. The players on the tournament’s winning team were Scott Libertore, Scot Srodes, Bob Wright, Scott Suplee and Roberto Borgatti.
