The Annual Golish Financial Group Charity Golf Tournament is planned for November 17 at Boca Lago Country Club, when golfers will be treated to lunch, a cocktail reception and an awards dinner that will include a special presentation by an Israel Defense Forces soldier. “I’m honored to be hosting this premier golf event,” said Glen Golish, president of Golish Financial Group and tournament chair. “My business associates, colleagues and friends are proud to support Israel’s Defense Forces and enjoy the day golfing.”
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,” Golish said. “Israel provides the equipment and other basics that make the IDF the premier fighting force it is, and yet there are many essentials for which it does not budget because the vast amount of funds, by necessity, are allocated for armaments and defensive needs of different kinds.”
The tournament is being held in conjunction with its 501(c)(3) public charity, Helping Israel Fund, to raise funds for the Israel Defense Forces.
“Supporting the tournament is a significant way to help the soldiers who defend and protect the state of Israel every day,” Golish said. “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 and help to meet their immediate needs.” The tournament is dedicated in memory of Stewart Harris, who was president of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County for three years. Harris had a profound love of the Jewish people and inspired others by his commitment to the community.
