JPMF Announces Golf Tournament

The Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) “Golf Classic 2011” will be held on December 10, 2011 at Sherwood Golf Club in Titusville. Registration begins at 7 am, with a shotgun start at 8 am. The tournament will have a modified scramble format.

Proceeds will benefit the Parrish Early Care and Education (PECE) program at The Children's Center in Titusville. The PECE program provides high quality developmental and educational care in fully inclusive classrooms where typically developing children and those with special needs learn together.

“JPMF has been supporting The Children’s Center since its inception in 2000.  Participation in this golf tournament is just one way to help provide the financial support for quality teachers who nurture and support the children in our community so they grow and develop to their fullest potential,” said Greg Sparkman, co-chair, JPMF 2011 Golf Classic Committee.  

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office will host a ball drop at 1:30 pm. Tickets for the ball drop are $20 each for a one in 250 chance to win up to $1,000. Winners need not be present. Additionally, Ron Norris Honda, Buick, GMC & Ford has generously sponsored a Hole-in-One Contest for a chance to win a car.
