The Boss Would Be Proud

George Steinbrenner was one of those rare individuals about whom everyone had an opinion. To say he was difficult to work for is a huge understatement. At the same time, he was among the most generous people the Tampa Bay area has ever known. Yet, he never sought attention for his philanthropic activities. When I think of his legacy, the Gold Shield Foundation comes to mind immediately. Gold Shield was created to assist the families of law enforcement officers who die in the line of duty. The primary focus is providing a college education for the children of those officers. I think Mr. Steinbrenner would be pleased to know that Fox Hollow Golf Club will donate every dollar from golfers who play the course next Tuesday, July 20th to the Gold Shield Foundation in memory of Tampa police officers Dave Curtis and Jeff Kocab. A minimum $50 donation will get you a round golf, a lunch buffet and unlimited soft drinks. You can call Fox Hollow at 727-376-6333 to make a tee time or go to http://www2.cybergolf.com/sites/courses/custom.asp?id=919&page=56057 for more information. I’m sure “The Boss” would be proud of the commitment made by Fox Hollow owner Bill Sandri and Head Professional Matt Cote.
