RL JAMES CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT
In just a few short weeks, the 2nd Annual RL James Charity Golf Tournament will be taking place! There’s still time and a few spots left to join in on the fun! The tournament will be on September 25th at the Windermere Country Club with a morning shotgun. All proceeds from the event will benefit PROJECT: VetRelief.
For this year’s event, we are thrilled to have the Honor Guard from The American Legion, Department of Florida Post 331 attend the event.
