[Fort Myers, FL] (May 19, 2021) The “GO GREEN” Golf Tournament is back for its 30th year to raise funds for Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc. (KLCB). The event will be held on October 15th at The Plantation Golf & Country Club with a 7:30 am shotgun start.
Keep Lee County Beautiful has hosted the “GO GREEN” fundraiser since 1991, with the exception of 2020 when the event was canceled due to the pandemic. This year’s tournament will have comprehensive safety measures in place to protect the health and well-being of all employees and golfers. The day will be filled with golf, fun-filled course contests, food, and a chance to win some premium auction items while raising funds to support programs and events focused on protecting the environment and improving the quality of life in Lee County.
Keep Lee County Beautiful is the largest environmental education organization providing community cleanups, beautification projects, and environmental education programming in Lee County. In fact, in 2020 (despite COVID-19 restrictions) KLCB hosted more than 200 litter removal events and three beautification projects engaging almost 2,000 volunteers. These volunteers spent 5,209 hours removing in excess of five tons of litter and debris from our communities and planted 160 new trees. These are hands-on projects members of the community are able to join in on and cannot be found anywhere else.
The cost is $500 per foursome or $125 per golfer. All proceeds stay in Lee County and support Keep Lee County Beautiful’s mission of preserving and protecting the environment through waste reduction efforts, education outreach activities, and beautification projects in our local communities.
KLCB is very thankful for the support of Nextran Truck Centers who is once again the event title sponsor.
