The Monique Burr Foundation for Children (MBF) proudly announces the 2022 Dream Finders Homes MBF Champions for Child Safety Pro Am Golf Tournament, presented by Vallencourt Construction, raised a record $422,000 to support MBF Prevention Education Programs to protect children.

“On behalf of the youth and communities we serve, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the golfers, sponsors, donors, and volunteers that made the golf tournament a tremendous success,” said Tanya Ramos-Puig, MBF Chief Executive Officer. “The tournament helped us raise much-needed funds to support MBF’s life-changing work. The commitment and investment of our supporters help our efforts to protect children and remove obstacles to accessing prevention education – not just in Florida, but all over the world.”

Held at The Palencia Club in St. Augustine, the annual tournament benefitting MBF offered corporate teams and individuals the opportunity to golf with professional golfers. Since the golf tournament began in 1997, it has raised more than $5 million for MBF.
