The tournament is dedicated in loving memory of Stewart Harris A”H”. Stewart formerly served three years as the President of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. He had a profound love of the Jewish people and inspired others by his commitment to the community. “I’m honored to be hosting this premier golf event. My business associates, colleagues and friends are proud to support Israel’s Defense Forces and enjoy the day golfing,” says Glen Golish, President, Golish Financial Group and Chairman, of the golf tournament. Jeffrey Harris is Honorary Chairman and feels just as strongly about the cause.
Golish indicated that the charity golf event proceeds will directly benefit the soldiers serving in Israel’s military. “The IDF has been the front line of defense for the state of Israel since its beginnings. Israel provides the equipment and other basics that make the IDF the premiere force it is, and yet there are many essentials f which it does not budget because the vast amount of funds, by necessity, are allocated for armaments and defensive needs of different kinds. The Golish Financial Group Charity Golf Tournament works in conjunction with their public charity, Helping Israel Fund, for the sole purpose of raising funds for Israel and the Israel Defense Forces. There aren’t any administrative fees associated with the fundraising, thus allowing 100% of the proceeds to be directed to worthy organizations.”
Golish concluded, “Supporting the IDF Charity Golf Tournament is a significant way to help the soldiers that put their lives on the line to defend and protect the state of Israel each and every day of the year. It is important for the soldiers to know that we don’t want them to walk alone and that we are ready to step up a help to meet their immediate needs.”
