HEAL Valley of Dreams Event a Great Success!
Thanks to the generosity of the PLAYERS Championship, PGA TOUR, TPC Sawgrass, our sponsors and donors, The HEAL Valley of Dreams Cocktail Reception and Charity Golf Classic was a huge success. The fundraiser raised upwards of $150,000 which will directly benefit those with Autism living in the Greater Jacksonville Area. Hundreds attended the Cocktail reception which featured music, local celebrities and a live and silent auction.
Several Jacksonville Jaguar's attended the two day event including Rookie Quarterback Blaine Gabbert, Eugene Monroe, Zach Potter and Rashad Jenning and Ledger Douzable. PGA TOUR Players and past TPC champions, Fred Funk and Mark McCumber gave a short golf clinic and spent the day visiting the players on Dye's Valley Course during the HEAL Charity Golf Classic.
Because of the outpouring and the generosity of our community, HEAL is pleased to announce that $30,000 will be awarded for fall grants which will benefit local school classrooms, educational programs and team sports for those with Autism.
