January was a perfect month to be in Florida, and there was no better way to spend time with your family than at the Diamond Resorts Invitational Benefiting Florida Hospital for Children. Wrapped around a 3-day, 54-hole golf tournament with a $500,000 purse, spectators enjoyed family-friendly events, great dining prepared by top chefs, and terrific entertainment from country music superstar Colt Ford, among others.
Well over one hundred celebrities from the worlds of pro sports, TV and film participated, and the chance for spectators to mingle with the stars made this an even more exciting event. Spirits ran high… golf balls soared… and when it was all over, former pro tennis player Mardy Fish was the champion.
Over the last few years this event has raised more than $1.7 million for Florida Hospital for Children, so the good time had by all was matched by the good feeling of doing something significant for children in need.
