Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club announced a special recognition ceremony and fundraising event to be held on Flag Day, Wednesday, June 14, from 3:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Vue on 30A. Proceeds from the live auction portion of the event will benefit Dogs on Deployment.
Beginning at 3:30 p.m. members, guests and the public are welcome to browse patriotic-inspired auction items and enjoy happy hour pricing at Vue on 30a.
The program and live auction will begin at 5 p.m. Auction items include: one-night stay and one round of golf for four at Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club, an American flag has flown over the United States Capitol, golf lessons, wine lots and much more.
To kick off the week leading up to the event, the club plans to reveal a 30-foot painted American flag on the green in front of its 18th hole in honor of U.S. service men and women and in support of the upcoming Flag Day ceremony and fundraiser.
The fundraiser will directly benefit Dogs on Deployment, a national, not-for-profit organization, which places pets in a happy home while their owners are deployed. In addition, Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club will recognize more than 25 of its very own members who have served or continue to serve in the armed forces.
“Honoring our service men and women permeates deep into the roots of Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club because the club was originally founded by military members,” said Michael Bickett, general manager for the club. “We are honored to carry that tradition at the club, honoring those who have served, in addition to raising funds for such a great cause.”
