The Wakulla Chamber of Commerce donated $1,000 to the Florida State University golf program in a Tuesday ceremony. The money was raised at the inaugural Seminole/Gator Golf Challenge on Nov. 12, 1999 at the Wildwood Golf and Country Club. Director of athletics Dave Hart, Jr., was on hand to accept the donation.

Steve Brown, the co-chairman of the event, commented that this is the largest fund-raiser put on by the Chamber of Commerce and is sponsored by different area businesses. The purpose of the event is to provide the Chamber of Commerce the financial support necessary to promote the economic development of Wakulla County.

Said Brown: “Anytime we, as friends of the program, can do anything for our varsity sports is a bonus. We are very happy to play a part in helping all student-athletes be successful during their collegiate careers. By doing this, we are helping them not only athletically but more importantly, academically.”

The second annual tournament is scheduled for Nov. 10 at Wildwood and the committee is looking forward to an even larger turnout than last year. The committee hopes to match as many Seminole golfers against as many Gator golfers that the course can hold in a Ryder Cup style format.

Players interested in participating in the event can contact Scott Gaby at (850) 926-7111 or Ray Boles (850) 926-6222 for further information.
