TAMPA, FL  --- The first annual Tampa Building to Make Lives Better Golf Tournament hosted by Pulte Homes at Avila Golf & Country Club raised $76,350 for The Children’s Home exceeding a goal of $50,000.

Sean Strickler, division president for Pulte Homes in the West Florida division, said the tournament was a sell out, they had 100 players registered even two weeks before the tournament. 
The proceeds, according to Strickler, will help fund The Pulte Promise, a program aimed at restructuring the vocational building for the older children for continued learning, as well as supporting the maternity ward on campus.

“All of us at Pulte Homes are proud and excited to be partnered with The Children’s Home,” Strickler said. 

“The enormous effort on the part of generous donors and contributors to this event is moving, and we are pleased to join hands with the entire Tampa community to assist these very deserving at-risk children and families through this incredible charity,” Strickler continued.

The Children’s Home in Tampa is a child and family-centered organization that is positioned to care for struggling families and children seeking the comfort of a loving family. Over the years, The Children’s Home has helped more than 6,000 children realize their dream of a family, and it has cared for more than 25,000 children in the Tampa Bay community.

At Avila Golf & Country Club, players in the Building To Make Lives Better Golf Tournament experienced the beautiful Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course and received gift bags courtesy of multiple donors, breakfast, lunch, and light refreshments and snacks throughout the tournament day.
