The Town of Cutler Bay hosted its 11th Annual Cutler Bay Open Charity Golf Tournament at the Miccosukee Golf and Country Club on Saturday, August 17, 2019. This year, a record-breaking $9,585 were raised to support the Cutler Bay Community Fund—which benefits non-profit organizations that are in or serve Cutler Bay.
The 100 tournament participants, which included Mayor Tim Meerbott and Council Member Michael Callahan, played and enjoyed a variety of competitions, in addition to the 18 holes of scramble. Activities included Par 3 Poker, Longest Drive, and Closest to the Pin competitions. There was also a hole-in-one competition, sponsored by Riva Motor Sports of Cutler Bay. Following the Tournament, participants enjoyed a buffet lunch, took part in a raffle with over 15 prizes and were presented the tournament awards by Mayor Meerbott, Vice Mayor Sue Ellen Loyzelle, Council Members BJ Duncan and Michael Callahan.
“I am proud of our fundraising efforts this year—we raised over $2,000 more than last year,” stated Mayor Tim Meerbott. “This tournament is the biggest contributor to the Cutler Bay Community Fund, which supports our Town’s non-profit organizations. Not only does this tournament support a great cause, but it is also a fun sporting event that has become something our residents, partners and friends look forward to participating in every year.”
The Town established the Cutler Bay Community Fund in 2013 with the goal of establishing partnerships that help improve the quality of life of residents in our community. The fund is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that is overseen by a Board of Directors consisting of the current Cutler Bay Mayor and Town Council. 100% of the funds collected through the community fund are solely used for charitable purposes with priority given to organizations that provide services within the Town of Cutler Bay.
