The annual golf tournament is the Foundation’s largest fundraising event and helps raise awareness and funds for Foundation programs, including the Employee Assistance Program.
The Corrections Foundation held its 6th Annual Golf Tournament on Tuesday November 15, 2005 at the beautiful Southwood Golf Club in Tallahassee. After having to reschedule our original date due to a tropical storm threat, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for this special event.
With 136 golfers in attendance from all over the state and the U.S., the event was a huge success. We were honored to have Deputy Secretary, Dr. Laura Bedard participate in the tournament. We were also privileged to have many Department of Corrections staff in attendance for the awards ceremony including: Inspector General Gerald Abdul-Wasi, Assistant Secretary Beth Atchison, Assistant Secretary Millie Seay, Deputy Assistant Secretary Greg Drake, Regional Director Marta Villacorta, Personal Secretary to the Secretary Peggy Proto, Executive Assistant to the Secretary Janice Mortimer and Personal Secretary to the Deputy Secretary Toni McCaskill. We sincerely appreciate Secretary Crosby and Dr. Bedard for their support of this annual event and of the Foundation. We also appreciate the unwavering support of our Board members who were in attendance including our Board President, Louie L. Wainwright, Vice President, Tom Rush, Treasurer, Dave Mecusker, Membership Chairman, Jim Williams, Development Chair, Betty Bennett, Richard Nimer and Robert Woody.
