The tournament will be on December 2nd. It will be preceded by a VIP Kick-Off Party on December 1st.

“We are very excited and grateful to be chosen as the beneficiary of this event. We are thrilled for the opportunity to build our new play space,” says Stephanie Seibel, CEO of ACCF. “The children had input into designing the space by sharing their favorite outdoor activities.”

“Through volunteerism and charitable outreach, our team can help support the economic, social and cultural life of the place in which we live and work,” say Bell and Duane of Merrill Lynch. “As a financial team working in Delray Beach, we feel it is important for us to ‘give back’ and help maintain a vibrant, healthy community and assist non-profit organizations in raising funds for their causes.”
