Jess Parrish Medical Foundation Hosts Benefit Golf Classic

Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) has announced the law firm of Zumpano Patricios & Winker, P.A. as the presenting sponsor for the annual Fran Gerrett Memorial Golf Classic on Friday, April 13.

More than 200 golfers are expected to play in the two-course tournament with all proceeds benefiting The Children’s Center (TCC), a service of Parrish Healthcare, and one-stop childhood development resource center. TCC provides a safe and healing environment for special needs and/or typically developing children to learn and grow, along with an array of health, education and human services under one roof.

“Zumpano Patricios & Winker, P.A. is honored to once again partner with Jess Parrish Medical Foundation as presenting sponsor for this year’s Fran Gerrett Memorial Golf Classic. We are committed to continuing the foundation’s mission of providing healing experiences to families throughout Brevard County, and it is our privilege to support future generations through the vital programs and services offered at The Children’s Center,” said Joseph I. Zumpano, managing shareholder at Zumpano Patricios & Winker, P.A.

Registration begins at noon, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Tournament players can choose between two golf courses – the members-only La Cita Golf & Country Club or The Great Outdoors Golf Club with the beautiful nature of the St. John's wildlife refuge.

Course selection is first-come, first-choice with paid registration. The tournament format will be a four-player scramble with fun contests, including a chance to win a $1,000 cash prize when purchasing a raffle ticket for $20.

Participants need not be present to win. Winners will be announced immediately following the awards ceremony. The tournament is a fun-filled event which allows you to golf and give back at the same time.

Fran Gerrett served as the director of Materials Management at Parrish Medical Center for 24 years. Fran passed away in 2012, but the annual golf tournament lives on as a tribute to his longtime dedication to our community and favorite charity, The Children’s Center. The golf classic is organized by community leaders and volunteers. Event co-chairs are Kathy Myer and Greg Sparkman. Other members of the golf committee include Santi Bulnes, Amy Craddock, Anita Currie, Lori Duester, Esther Porta, Christie Rimsky, Leigh Spradling, Misty Wilson and Suzanne Yarbrough.

The foundation welcomes all businesses and organizations to participate and support the event. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available beginning at $500. Individual player costs are $85, which includes golf, lunch and dinner.
