On Friday, December 10, the 4th Annual Grampy's Pro-Am Golf Tournament Benefitting SWFL Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® Program welcomed golfers to the beautiful Fiddlesticks Golf and Country Club in Fort Myers.
The 2021 tournament raised nearly $100,000 to support the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® Program in Southwest Florida. Through philanthropy and a partnership with two providers, Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida and Healthcare Network, these mobile dental offices provide various free-of-charge services, such as cleaning, treatment, and education, to children in Lee, Hendry, and Collier counties who otherwise would not receive dental care. Of the 48 total Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles globally, RMHC SWFL is proud to have two serving Southwest Florida.
"As a migrant child, my family never knew where to go for dental care. Even now, many people still don't know where to go if their children have bad cavities or a toothache. The fact that I am able to help them receive the care they need means so much to me." Daisy Ojeda, Assistant Vice President, Clinical Operations, Dental at Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida, and Member, RMHC SWFL Board of Directors.
For the last four years, Grampy's Charities has been proud to support this fundraising effort with 100% of all funds raised going directly to this mission.
"At Grampy's Charities, we raise funds for and partner with a small group of nonprofits that have a proven track record of improving the lives of children and can show why they need our support to meet their mission. Supporting RMHC SWFL is an easy decision for us. Year after year, this wonderful organization invests in the health and well-being of children and their families and has a proven track record of success. Our relationship with RMHC SWFL matters greatly to us, and we celebrate their 25 years of providing impact in Southwest Florida." Jim Castle, Founder of Grampy's Charities.
