For the 14th consecutive year, South Florida’s radio legend “Footy” will take to the golf course along with a couple of hundred friends and supporters of a charity that is close to his heart – Here’s Help Inc. This year’s Wing Ding Golf Classic, hosted by Badia Spices, takes place on Friday, May 3 at the Pembroke Pines Golf & Racquet Club, considered to be one of Broward County’s premiere private golf clubs. The club features an exceptional 18 hole, par-72 golf course. Registration and lunch starts at 11:30 a.m. with the shot-gun start at 1:00 p.m.
“We couldn’t have the terrific success we have enjoyed over the years without our many friends who take time out of their busy schedule to help us raise money and awareness for Here’s Help, the team-driven drug treatment agency for people ages 13 years and older,” Footy explained. “Add to that the corporate sponsorships and underwriting, we have a winning combination that is making a positive difference in the lives of some very important young people in our community.”
At the top of the list of sponsors are Publix Super Markets, Greenspoon Marder P.A., Levinson Jewelers, BB&T, Rick Case Automotive Group, and Comcast.
Teams of four or individual players are welcome, with a registration fee of $225.00 per player. The registration fee includes greens fees and cart, range balls during practice, lunch sponsored by El Pimiento and all tournament amenities and competitions, dinner, and gifts.
Footy is known for his deeply rooted commitment to community service and has been a presence on South Florida radio for over 35 years. He was a co-host on a locally produced South Florida morning show from 1974 to 2006, thus holding the record of longest Top 40 CHR DJ in North America.
“We are proud to welcome back our corporate sponsors Dynasty Apparel, John the Baker, Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza and Anthony’s Runway 84, El Pimiento Restaurant, Metro Signs, Lifestyle Magazine, Hooters, Sandals Resorts, Southern Wine and Spirits, Café a la Carte and Beaches Resorts which will make our tournament the best ever!” Footy added.
Pembroke Pines Golf & Racquet Club challenges the accomplished player, yet does not discourage the beginner. It is a course that is fun and exciting to play, day after day. The course is kept in excellent condition and the greens are built to USGA specifications. Course facilities include a driving range, practice putting green, and practice pitch and chipping green.
Here’s Help, Inc. is a nonprofit treatment agency providing residential programs and outpatient therapy (group, individual, and family), for people who have co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
