Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches Golf Tournament raises $60,000 for the troubled and displaced children of Florida, St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara announces
Here is a statement from St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara discussed the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches Golf Tournament in St. Lucie County that took place May 11:

The displaced and troubled children of Florida were the  big winners at our recent 27th annual Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches Golf Tournament; which raised $60,000. The tournament took place at The Legacy Golf and Tennis Club May 11 where 117 golfers took part.

The annual golf tournament is the principal St. Lucie County fund-raiser for the Youth Ranches network of facilities throughout Florida created more than half a century ago by the Sheriffs of Florida. Since 1986, the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches Golf Tournaments in St. Lucie County have raised more than $872,000.

I would like to thank the many sponsors who made the success of the tournament possible. Their dedication to this worthy cause cannot be overstated.

It would not have been possible to stage the tournament without the selfless dedication of volunteers Justin Jensen, Sarah Miller, Nicole Nastasia, Elizabeth Privateer, Rachel Privateer, Lynn Schwab, Rena Schwab, Steve Shaw, Adam Vincent and Rachel Vincent.

Planning, guiding and directing our efforts were the members of the Golf Tournament Committee Bill Foley, Nancy Perella, Laurie Privateer, Tammy Schwab, Dorothy Shaw, Debbie Skidmore, Natalie Smith, Diane Trabulsy, Rhonda Vincent, Jim Westenhaver and Debra Wright.

The Youth Ranches is a charitable, non-profit corporation, chartered in the State of Florida. You can learn more at the organization's website youthranches.org, or by calling 772-462-3205.
