TITUSVILLE, FLA. (March 19, 2019)—Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) has announced the law firm of Zumpano
Patricios as the presenting sponsor for the annual Fran Gerrett Memorial
Golf Classic on Friday, April 12.
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 is honored to continue its tradition of supporting
the Fran Gerrett Memorial Golf Classic as presenting sponsor again this
year. We believe the Foundation’s mission of providing healing experiences
to families is fundamental to advancing the future of our youth, and it
is our privilege to extend our financial support to the vital programs
and services offered at The Children’s Center,” said Joseph
I. Zumpano, managing shareholder at Zumpano Patricios.
Registration begins at noon, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Tournament
players can choose between two golf courses – the Ron Garl and Lee
Trevino-designed La Cita Golf & Country Club nestled amongst 100-year
old oak trees or The Great Outdoors with the beautiful natural environment
of the St. Johns 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.

classic is organized by community leaders and volunteers. Event co-chairs
