South Florida, June 3, 2024 – In an unprecedented show of community spirit, dozens of country club managers across South Florida are joining forces to support Fuller Center. This collaborative effort, spearheaded by the Seminole Region of the Club Managers Association of America, aims to raise significant funds to benefit our mission of embracing, educating and empowering hardworking, under-resourced families and children to achieve their full potential.

Over the past few years, they have raised over one million dollars, and this year, they expect to make a meaningful impact, continuing to inspire hope and helping kids overcome adversity, poverty, and health challenges that hinder their dreams. “These charities need our help more than ever as they deal with inflation and cost of living increases. Our goal is to leverage our resources and collective influence to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those in need throughout South Florida. By coming together, we can accomplish more than we ever could individually.” says CEO/General Manager of Addison Reserve Country Club and Chairman of the Seminole Region Charity Golf Tournament Michael McCarthy.

Besides Fuller Center the funds raised will be distributed to the Special Olympics, SOS Children’s Villages Florida, The First Tee, 4KIDS, George Snow Scholarship Fund, Caring Children Clothing Children Inc., Boca School for Autism, and Junior Achievement of South Florida.

About the Fuller Center
For more than 50 years, the Fuller Center’s mission has been to embrace, educate, and empower hardworking, under-resourced families and children to reach their full potential. We build a positive future through education for nearly 1000 children (infants through teens) whom we serve annually, as well as nearly 700 of their family members. The Fuller Center reaches families in more than 40 zip codes throughout Palm Beach County, as well as northern Broward County.

65% of Fuller Center parents serve as essential or frontline workers, working in hospitals, retail outlets, restaurants, and hotels. They are our bus drivers, store clerks and cashiers, farmworkers, delivery drivers, security guards, bank tellers, office workers, healthcare workers, home health aides, hospital orderlies and cafeteria workers, and childcare and eldercare workers.

Our programs help empower children to start school prepared, succeed academically, and break the generational cycle of poverty through quality early childhood education, after-school and summer camp programs, our new private elementary school and teen leadership programs, and comprehensive, family-centered support services. They also empower parents who are essential to keeping our local economy open and who provide the vital services we all count on.

The Fuller Center also offers mentoring programs and adult on-the-job training, coaching, and employment support, and no-cost transportation from 14 area schools to our campus-based after-school programs. We serve more than 1,800 nutritious meals and snacks daily.

In addition, Fuller Center provides opportunities for local colleges and universities to place undergraduate and graduate students in internships and child development practicums.
