Glow in the Dark will benefit EFMC

Jeanine Bushman, 2021 South Fork High School Teacher of the Year

 

What began as a 2020 fundraiser that could satisfy social distancing needs during the pandemic’s early stages while raising much-needed funds for one of the Treasure Coast’s most esteemed nonprofits has returned.

On Saturday, Oct. 1, Glow in the Dark will take place at Hammock Creek Golf Club in Palm City to benefit Education Foundation of Martin County.

This fun-filled nine-hole golf tournament kicks off at 4:30 p.m. with registration and cocktails. A shotgun start with a scramble format will follow.

Scheduled ending time is 8:30 p.m.

Roaming beverage carts will dot the greens and food stations will be featured throughout the course, allowing players to stop for a bite in between holes.

Entry fee for individual golfers is $250 and premium team foursomes are $1,000. Love a great party but don’t want to golf?  Consider purchasing a foursome for your favorite school or district level staff, becoming a sponsor, or registering as an attendee.  Hacker attendee entrance is $100 per person and allows you to be part of the festivities as you eat and drink your way around the course in support of Martin County’s students and teachers.

All Martin County School Teachers of the Year will be on hand, sporting around in school spirit-themed carts.  A cash grant will be awarded to the cart/team showing the most spirit.  Help make it happen by purchasing a $250 cart sponsorship for your favorite school.

The winning foursome will take away a trophy and a complimentary golf foursome at one of our local premier courses.  The last place team will also take home a one-of-a-kind prize.

A $10,000 Hole-in-One prize sponsored by MIDFLORIDA Credit Union is up for grabs.

Sponsorship opportunities costing from $250-$3,500 are available. Benefits vary and can include a premium team foursome, decorated golf carts, photo opps, event signage, social media posts, logo inclusion on the EFMC website and email news blasts and more

CTM Custom’s family-friendly fall festival benefits three nonprofits

CTM Custom’s family-friendly fall festival benefits three nonprofits

 

Matt Okerson, owner, CTM Custom; Orgen Martinez, marketing manager, CTM Custom; David Wolf, 4KIDS Treasure Coast; Stephany Forsythe, administrator, CTM Custom; Kenya Reinhardt, 4KIDS Treasure Coast; Sarah Marie Henry, Catch the Wave of Hope

Catch the Wave of Hope (CWH) will be one of three lucky nonprofit beneficiaries of the Automotive Fall Festival that will be hosted by CTM Customs on Sept. 30-Oct. 1 at the Hobe Sound Farmers Market.

Operation 300 and 4KIDS will also share in the weekend’s proceeds. The Fall Festival will offer something for everyone, auto buffs or not. Hobe Sound Farmer’s Market will be brimming with such fun activities as bobbing for apples, face painting, obstacle course, axe throwing, train rides and a cornhole tournament. Bounce houses will add to the fun on Saturday. You can also enjoy lemonade and bake sale stands, as well as raffles and a silent auction.

The wide expanse of the Hobe Sound Farmer's Market – located just west of I95 at Bridge Road – is the perfect venue for a family-friendly fall festival. There will be plenty of live music, vendors with booths that are automotive-related and not and food trucks galore.

General parking is $5 per vehicle. Overnight camping is $20, but space is limited.

 Matt Okerson of CTM Customs, an automotive customization shop located in Stuart, promises the coolest rides around: lifted up, powered up and tricked out is how he describes them.

The three nonprofits that will benefit serve children in a variety of ways,

Catch the Wave of Hope is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit working locally to prevent sex trafficking of children through awareness, education, restoration and legislation.

Operation 300 provides mentorship to children of the fallen, honoring the sacrifice of those who've given their all for our freedom and promoting patriotism and service on the Treasure Coast

4KIDS brings hope to babies, kids, teens, and young adults by providing safe and secure environments for healing, equipped parents and caregivers who are trained to love kids from hard places, essential resources to meet their physical needs, nurturing counsel to help them thrive and a renewed sense of value in their hearts.

Hobe Sound Farmers Market is located at 1425 SE Bridge Road, Hobe Sound.
