Event Co-Chairs Jim McCarthy and Mark Berman

More than 80 golfers turned out for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) of North Florida’s 12th annual Sixty-Five Roses Golf Tournament at the Jacksonville Golf and Country Club on Nov. 5. Tournament participants enjoyed a day of golfing and fellowship, followed by an awards ceremony with silent auction where nearly 150 guests were in attendance. In spite of inclement weather on Nov. 7 that forced the cancellation of the companion tennis tournament, the event has currently raised $75,000 with more donations expected.

The success of the tournament was largely based on the support of area businesses and organizations. Premier sponsors of the event included Wolfson Children’s Hospital, PlaidParty.com, Anonymous Friends of the Foundation and W.W. Gay Mechanical Contractor. American Airlines served as the outstanding national corporate sponsor and Bansley, Brescia & Co., P.C. served as the 65 Roses Sponsor. All proceeds from the event benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. After more than 50 years of service, CFF remains committed to its core mission: to assure a means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease.
