More than $125,000 was raised from the highly successful eighth annual Rendina Family Foundation “Raising the B.A.R.” Bruce A. Rendina Memorial Golf Tournament. The event was held on Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8 at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.
Friday evening’s Atlantis Paradise Island Welcome Reception kicked off the event as the more than 130 guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, a raffle and silent auction. More than 100 golfers teed-off bright and early the following morning for a shotgun, scramble golf tournament.
