Mobile, AL (August 29, 2017) – The 11th Annual Threaded Fasteners Inc. Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Team Focus is planned for Saturday, Oct. 7 on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail at Magnolia Grove Golf Course in Mobile.
“The Threaded Fasteners Charitable Foundation is proud to partner with Team Focus in helping to support their organization as they change the lives of fatherless young men,” said Todd Hoffman, spokesman for Threaded Fasteners. “Team Focus’ work is vitally important in this day and age. Coaching young men to be respectable, contributing citizens has literally changed Mobile and the other areas Team Focus’ serves for the better.”
The cost to take part in the tournament is $100 per person. The entry fee includes breakfast, tournament favors and lunch sponsored by Wintzell’s Oyster House. Registration begins at 6:45 a.m. followed by a shotgun tee-off at 8 a.m. Attendees are asked to arrive no later than 7:15 a.m. to ensure enough time to register. Early bird registration extends through Sept. 15, and guarantees golfers a tournament shirt, organizers said.
Proceeds will benefit the non-profit Team Focus, which was founded in 2000 in Mobile 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.
“Team Focus truly appreciates the past 10 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.” (Photo: Mike Gottfried)
