2022 Threaded Fasteners Charitable Foundation, Charity Golf Tournament

2022 Threaded Fasteners Charitable Foundation, Charity Golf Tournament.

Mobile, AL (January 20, 2022) – The Annual Threaded Fasteners Charitable Foundation Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Team Focus was successfully held on October 2, 2021, at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. The Threaded Fasteners Charitable Foundation is excited to announce that $42,000 was raised to benefit the non-profit Team Focus, the most that the foundation has ever been able to present to Team Focus from this annual event weekend.

Threaded Fasteners Charity Golf Tournament organizers are especially grateful to all the gracious donors and sponsors of this important charity event benefiting Team Focus, including Taco Mama for sponsoring this year’s lunch.

Team Focus was founded in 2000 in Mobile, AL by Mike Gottfried and his wife, Mickey, to help boys ages 10 to 18 who lack father figures in their lives. The mission of Team Focus is to provide a year-round program of support, encouragement and Godly values that foster the development of life skills in young men without active fathers by supporting the family structure. Team Focus uses role models and positive influences in mentoring, tutoring and other interactive initiatives to reach the youngsters. Team Focus has worked with more than 3,000 boys and young men since it was founded.

One unique aspect of the Threaded Fasteners Charitable Foundation Golf Tournament is members of Team Focus receive a golf lesson during the golf tournament. Team Focus members are instructed on golf rules, etiquette, and technique. The lesson gives them the opportunity to try a new sport and to familiarize themselves with the lessons on manners, patience, and communication skills.

“Team Focus truly appreciates the numerous years of support from Threaded Fasteners, but we receive so much more than finances from this generous company,” Mike Gottfried said. “The remarkable relationships we have developed with the people who work there demonstrate their strong desire to help our young men become leaders in their communities.”
