Port Tampa Bay Hosts Fourth Annual Charity Golf Tournament – Raising Record Breaking $70,000

- Port Tampa Bay hosted their fourth annual charity golf tournament to benefit both Tampa Port Ministries and the Tampa Bay Maritime Scholarship Foundation.  With the support of PTB volunteers, the port community and its sponsors, this year’s tournament raised $70,000; approximately $10,000 more than last year.


Port Tampa Bay held Friday’s tournament at the Eagles Golf Club, located at 16101 Nine Eagles Drive, Odessa, FL 33556.  A total of 64 teams competed, playing on two separate golf courses, for the chance to win coveted trophies, amazing prizes and contribute to this worthy cause. 


Port Tampa Bay’s Engineering Department has organized this event since its inception, driving this year’s extra $10,000 donations.


Thanks to the tremendous success of this event, the additional proceeds will be used to bolster scholarships being granted to students pursuing a career in the maritime industry.  Scholars who have come through the maritime program at either Blake or Jefferson High School will be granted the opportunity to earn these awards.
