Golf Skills Challenge

December 08, 2016

Golf Challenger 2017On November 13 at Southwood Golf Club, Steve and Wendy Rogers hosted the seventh annual Golf Skills Challenge presented by Sonny’s Bar-B-Que to benefit the Tallahassee Memorial Cancer Center and the Tallahassee Memorial Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

When told that TMH would need to order an additional Giraffe OmniBed for treating the premature babies in the NICU, Steve Rogers, founder of The Golf Skills Challenge, explained, “The goal when I founded The Challenge was to raise enough money to make a substantial difference in healthcare for the Tallahassee community. Knowing that The Challenge, through our many golfers and sponsors, has raised enough money to purchase the OmniBed for the NICU makes me very proud and is incredibly humbling. The Challenge is more than just a Rogers family effort. It includes many friends, local golfers and twenty or so local businesses all pitching in their time and money to make it successful.

We are also blessed by 80 student-athletes from the FSU Golf and Swim & Dive teams who volunteer their Sunday afternoon to make it all possible. Our Lord willing, we hope to continue making a difference in Tallahassee.”
