The South Florida Business Aviation Association (SFBAA) raised nearly $40,000 at its 12th annual golf tournament, the SFBAA Charity Golf Classic. The money will be awarded to multiple SFBAA scholarship recipients and several charities.
The 2015 SFBAA Charity Golf Classic hosted 180 golfers at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens on October 31, 2015.
The SFBAA will award general scholarships to two outstanding high school seniors from the south Florida area who plan to further their education in the aviation field. The organization will also award a Dave Davis Memorial Scholarship to a south Florida high school senior who has made an outstanding contribution of community service during his/her high school career.
The scholarships will be presented at the SFBAA general membership meeting on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at Jet Aviation in West Palm Beach.
Remaining proceeds raised at the golf tournament will be donated to Make-A-Wish Foundation, Angel Flight Southeast and Christian Air Services.
“The SFBAA scholarships play a vital role in the aviation careers of graduating high school seniors,” said Jeff Ramsden, SFBAA president. “It is our privilege to contribute to their futures in addition to supporting other national charities.”
The SFBAA has raised more than $200,000 for scholarships and charities in the past 12 years.
Headline sponsors for the 2015 SFBAA Charity Golf Classic included Bombardier, Falcon, JSSI, Gulfstream, Textron, Flightdocs, Satcom Direct, Jet Effect and Florida Jet Sales.
