HOPE Outreach Center, Inc, a Davie based not for profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1995 to develop and  provide  quality of  life services for individuals and families in need.   “This will be a First Class Golf Tournament,” Beth Azor HOPE Outreach Center Golf Co-Chair.  “We are nearly sold out for golfers and our sponsors have been very generous.  As with all our fundraisers though, sponsorship opportunities are always available and range from $250 upward to $20,000.”

“We are honoring Lance Ruble who was a long time friend and benefactor of HOPE Outreach Center. His wife Joni has been a volunteer at the Center for many years. Lance was a quiet star who always made a difference. He worked behind the scenes and did not need accolades or recognition. He took on projects big and small, he answered YES to every call. He involved his family and his business in helping HOPE wherever we needed him, from food pickups, construction work, to special projects. He was a true “Angel of HOPE” who believed that people need a second chance. This great man who never counted the cost leaves our HOPE family to grieve his loss. We truly miss him!” continued Azor.

“We are going to enjoy a challenging Tournament, playing on this lush gem of a course hidden in the heart of Broward County and raise a great deal of money for HOPE Outreach, life doesn’t get much better than that for a golfer,” Azor concluded.

Established in 1926, the Fort Lauderdale Country Club boasts two championship 18-hole golf courses on a beautiful 300 acre park like site.
