SOUTH FLORIDA SCIENCE CENTER ANNOUNCES SECOND ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC
Golfers are invited to swing for science at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club
(West Palm Beach, Fla.) Science will be in full swing at the upcoming South Florida Science Center and Aquarium’s (SFSCA) second annual Golf Classic. Hosted by the Science Center’s Young Professional Organization and chaired by SFSCA board member Heath Randolph, the tournament will be held at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club on Monday, October 28. The action packed day will include lunch, a shot-gun start, cocktail reception and awards presentation.
“I’m honored to be chairing this event for the second year in a row,” said Randolph. “It is through events such as this that we are able to continue to meet the informal science education needs of the tri-county area and beyond. Now that the Science Center has just completed their expansion and renovation, they have the space to bring in much larger blockbuster exhibits, which will give them the ability to expand their breadth and depth of visitors.”
The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, formerly known as the South Florida Science Museum, recently completed a $5 million expansion and renovation. With a new mission to “open every mind to science,” the Science Center features more than 50 hands-on educational exhibits, an 8,000 gallon fresh and salt water aquarium- featuring both local and exotic marine life, a digital planetarium, conservation research station, Florida exhibit hall and an interactive Everglades exhibit.
“Last year’s inaugural golf classic was truly a success due in large part to the efforts of our wonderful Young Professionals Organization,” said Lew Crampton, South Florida Science Center’s CEO. “We are grateful that Mayacoo Lakes Country Club has welcomed us back again, as their course design incorporates both challenge and playability for every skill level. We invite all types of golfers –new friends and old- to join us for a day of fun, all in the name of science.
Golf Classic committee members include Ben Alexander, Carolyn Broadhead, Scott Butler, John Clark Bills, Lew Crampton, Matthew Ferguson, Rob Ford, Jeremy Johnson, Mack Perry, Grier Pressly, Kevin Probel, Cater Randolph, Brian Ray, Judd Rowe, Jeff Smith and Rett Waldman.
