LEESBURG, Fla. — Space is still available for golfers to participate in the Mercy Flight Southeast 18th Annual Golf Tournament, sponsored by the Harper Family Charitable Foundation, to be held at Arlington Ridge Golf Club in Leesburg, on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11.
For the second year in a row, the Harper Family Charitable Foundation is the title sponsor of the golf tournament, one of Mercy Flight Southeast’s signature fundraisers.
The golf tournament begins at 7:30 a.m. and includes breakfast and lunch. Several additional activities are planned for the day of golf including a “Helicopter Ball Drop Raffle,” an opportunity to shoot the golf ball “bazooka” and the chance for four people to win $1 million for a hole-in-one. Foursomes can elect to be paired with a sports celebrity or community VIP.
Mercy Flight Southeast coordinates approximately 3,000 free flights each year for children and adults who need transportation to life-saving, far-from-home medical care. The non-profit relies on a network of 650 pilots across Florida who donate time and aircraft to fly Mercy Flight Southeast passengers.
