BLAIR GROUP’S GOLF TOURNAMENT GENERATES
RECORD DONATIONS FOR MAKE-A-WISH®

Blair Group, one of Florida’s largest developers of affordable, 55+ lifestyle communities, will host its 27th Annual Blair Open Golf Tournament on Friday, May 15.

Since 2006, the event has generated over $150,000 for Make-A-Wish Central & Northern Florida to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Blair Group president, Bob Young is once again pleased to sponsor this annual golf event. “It never fails to amaze me,” says Young “… The generosity of our loyal friends, vendors and partners who come out year after year to support these children and their families.”

Since partnering with Make-A-Wish, Blair Group has helped grant 21 wishes of 21 deserving children. “This will mark our tenth year raising over $150,000 for such a worthy organization,” says Young, “And I couldn’t be prouder.”

Make-A-Wish Central & Northern Florida, advisory board chair, Penny Parks said “Blair Group’s long-standing and continued support has been life-altering for over 20 wish families who are facing the difficulty of dealing with a child’s life-threatening illness. It is wonderful to be able to count on this partnership and ensure that we can continue to provide transformational memories for kids in Central Florida.”
