By Staff | Jul 20, 2021

As part of its continuing community outreach efforts, the Red Sox Foundation will hold its 10th annual Swings for the Sox golf tournament on Oct. 1.

The tournament will take place at the Tiburón Golf Club located at 2620 Tiburón Drive in Naples.

A scramble format with prizes for the longest drive, putting, closest to the pin and more will begin at 8:30 a.m. after registration at 7:15 a.m. A continental breakfast will be included as well as a buffet lunch.

All proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit the Lee County Red Sox Scholarship program. Each year, the Red Sox Foundation awards a $5,000 college scholarship to one deserving student from each of the 14 public high schools in Lee County.

To date, the Swings for the Sox has raised more than $450,000 for local charities and specifically $390,000 for the scholarship program.

This year’s title sponsor is DLD Builders and joins Millennium Physician Group as presenting sponsor.

Tournament sponsorships are available from $150 to $10,000. Foursome player packages begin at $1,000. All golfers will receive a unique New Balance gift bag and lunch at the course. There will also be a silent auction and high-end raffle prizes for golfers to bid on.

Raffle and silent auction items that can be used to aid in raising money for the Red Sox Foundation’s scholarship fund and additional funds for those in need throughout Southwest Florida are also being accepted.

The Red Sox Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox. The foundation’s primary focus locally is in serving the health, education, recreation and social service needs of children and families across Southwest Florida. The Red Sox Foundation is one of the most successful in all of Major League Baseball.
