FORT MYERS, Fla. (April 19, 2017) – Gateway Trinity Lutheran Church’s sixth annual Charity Golf Tournament raised $45,500.

One-hundred percent of the proceeds will be split evenly between the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida and Community Cooperative. The event was held at Gateway Golf and Country Club on Saturday, March 18, 2017.

“The community response has once again been overwhelming this year as it has the last five years,” said Russ Reynolds, tournament director. “Our two deserving charities provide so much help and support to those who are less fortunate, and our success comes from the generous community of families and businesses that have donated more than $176,000 during the last six years.”

Based on community support, last year, GTLC pledged to raise $200,000 during the next five years to be split between the Golisano Children’s Hospital and Community Cooperative.
