“The Land­mark Amer­i­cana Golf for Kids event was a huge suc­cess this year! The weather was per­fect. The golf course was in spec­tac­u­lar con­di­tion and we’re al­ready look­ing for­ward to next year’s event. Thanks to all the Land­mark Amer­i­cana and Van­guard em­ployee vol­un­teers who helped put it to­gether. We couldn’t have done it with­out you,” said Brian Zim­mer­man, co-founder of the event.

“It is such an honor to be able to host mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and sup­port­ers of the or­ga­ni­za­tion in our an­nual Golf Tour­na­ment” says Ja­son San­tora, Land­mark Amer­i­cana Gen­eral Man­ager and co-founder of the event. “We are so lucky to be able to play such an out­stand­ing golf course in the area and work with the hard work­ing staff of Friends As­so­ci­a­tion for Care & Pro­tec­tion of Chil­dren.”

PGM Real Es­tate, cor­po­rate spon­sor of the tour­na­ment re­ceived the “Best FRIENDS Award” which rec­og­nized the per­son or cor­po­ra­tion that goes above and be­yond for the tour­na­ment each year.
