From Sandra:

"For the third year in a row, I have joined forces with nonprofit Volunteers of America of Florida to host the 2018 Sandra Gal Charity Challenge. The proceeds from that event will create the Sandra Gal Children’s Center! Since 1896 Volunteers of America of Florida has served and supported the most vulnerable people of America such as homeless individuals and families, veterans, underprivileged children & youth, people with disabilities and those recovering from addictions. Together we will grow Volunteers of America of Florida’s good work through the Sandra Gal Children’s Center. The Center will provide a safe and happy space for children in their Programs to learn and grow through mindfulness practice, meditation, golf and more. All of this will be made possible by the proceeds of the Pro-Am!

I have had the privilege of being brought up by two loving parents, who have always helped me to realize my dreams. That is why I would like to support these children and encourage them to follow their dreams."


Fundraising Goal:

The 2018 goal is to raise $75,000 to support formerly homeless children by giving them a safe & happy place to follow their dreams, “The Sandra Gal Children’s Center”! Change the lives of children, sign up to golf today.
