Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade Raises Over $250,000 at Annual Golf Classic

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade recently hosted its popular 56th Annual Golf Classic in Memory of Charles “Bebe” Rebozo at Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club in Coral Gables. They raised over $250,000 to help fund its services and programs at its six Clubs and sites, which provide mentoring, educational after-school programs, homework assistance, tutoring, athletic programs and seasonal camps for area youth who need them most.

The tournament featured 144 players, including former MLB baseball player and champion World Long Drive competitor Bobby Bradley, who helped the club raise funds on the links. Guests also had the opportunity to participate in various activities and additional fundraising contests at different holes. At hole six, players had the chance to witness Bradley’s famous long drive first-hand and at hole ten, Hooter’s hosted a game of dice. At hole 17, players could use the ball launcher to catapult their ball across the green or receive mini-treatments from Vengeance Physical Therapy.

An awards ceremony and buffet dinner featuring a live raffle offered golf aficionado items, restaurant and vacation packages and more. All golfers received a complimentary sponsor-branded swag bag with a sponsor-branded polo, umbrella, golf balls and other takeaways.

“We are tremendously grateful for the ongoing support from all those who joined us for the 56th Annual Golf Classic in memory of Charles ‘Bebe’ Rebozo,” Alex Rodriguez-Roig says, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade President. “The fun-filled day on the green helped us raise the necessary funds to serve the Club’s many positive programs, support the Capital Campaign to completely rebuild the Northwest Club into a state-of-the-art facility and expand the new sixth Club to continue making a difference in the lives of Miami-Dade area youth for generations to come.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
