The Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) “Golf Classic 2011,” held on December 10, 2011 at Sherwood Golf Club in Titusville, raised $14,000. Proceeds 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.
More than 100 golfers participated in the tournament held on the new greens at Sherwood. “The new greens are in fantastic shape and I think everyone enjoyed playing there,” said Kathy Myer, co-chair of the Golf Classic committee and director of women’s services at Parrish Medical Center (PMC).
The first place men’s team was Jason Snodgrass, Tim Fields, Todd Denson, and Eric McDougal. The first place women’s team was Jan Henderson, Toni Thigpin, Maureen Legg, and Janet Whittemore. Door prizes for attendees were donated by many local businesses such as Dixie Crossroads, Brevard Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Pumpernickels and many more.
Joann Chapman, manager of the surgical/orthopedic/pediatric unit at PMC, was the lucky winner of the ball drop hosted by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office. She was presented with a check for $1,000.
“We’d like to thank all our sponsors, participants and volunteers who helped us exceed our goal and make this event a huge success for the children in our community,” said Richard Boggs, chairman of the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation Board of Directors.
