The Coral Springs Martin Luther King, Jr. Committee and JM Lexus present the fifth annual "Golfing for the King" Golf Classic, to be held on Friday, October 8 at the Heron Bay Golf Club, located at 11801 Heron Bay Boulevard. The breakfast sponsor is Whole Foods Market.
Registration begins at 7 a.m. and Shotgun begins at 8:30 a.m. Registration fee includes breakfast, beverages on the course and awards luncheon.
Proceeds from this event directly benefit the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund for Coral Springs high school students who demonstrate a financial need. This scholarship is offered regardless of ethnicity. In past years, through the Committee's efforts, more than 120 high school seniors have received scholarships in varying amounts based primarily on financial need. The students will apply the scholarship money towards their tuition costs at a university or other educational institution of their choice. The scholarship is available to high school seniors who live in Coral Springs and attend one of the five local high schools: J.P. Taravella, Stoneman Douglas, Coral Springs Charter, Coral Glades and Coral Springs High School.
The purpose of the scholarship program is "to provide funds to needy, local students who, through their words and actions, embody the spirit of Dr. King's teachings." Although preference is given to students with financial need, attention is also given to the quality of community service performed by the applicants.
Since the scholarship program is entirely dependent upon the generous contributions of individuals and corporations, your donation to this cause is very important. All donations are tax-deductible.
