Miami, FL, January 10, 2020—This exciting tournament will take place on Friday, May 29, 2020 at the beautifully renovated, Miami International Links Miami – Melreese Country Club. Enjoy a fun-filled day which will include a 50/50 raffle, food & drinks and great golf!

Among the participants at this event will be representatives from South Florida’s major corporations as well as local political and community leaders.
“Boating and Golfing are two of South Floridians favorite pastimes, so what better way to raise money for boating safety than with a golf tournament? It’s such a natural fit! This tournament is a great opportunity for the community to come out and play golf, but most importantly raise money for boating safety. We ask everyone to prioritize boating safety when on the water and help financially by supporting the Monica Burguera Foundation. Our goal is to make Miami’s waterways safer through the free boater’s safety education classes, which we offer throughout the year.” Says Mabel Gonzalez, Director of Operations for the Monica Burguera Foundation.
Tournament registration begins at 12:30 p.m. followed by a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m.
A cocktail reception will begin at 5:00 p.m. in the on-site dining room followed by dinner.
