Zumpano Patricios Return as Presenting Sponsor for Jess Parrish Medical Foundation Golf Classic on March 31

TITUSVILLE, FLA. (JAN. 13, 2023)— 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, March 31.

More than 200 golfers are expected to play 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 partner with Jess Parrish Medical Foundation for the ninth year as presenting sponsor of the Fran Gerrett Memorial Golf Classic. It is gratifying to know that our contribution is helping advance the vital work of TCC and that children in North Brevard will continue to have access to the programs, and receive services and support, toward realizing fullest potential during their most important developmental years of life, stated Joseph I. Zumpano, managing shareholder at Zumpano Patricios.

Tournament players can choose between two golf courses – Indian River Preserve Golf Club with its rich, lush rolling fairways designed by Perry Dye and LPGA champion Jan Stephenson or The Great Outdoors Golf Club with the beautiful natural environment of the St. Johns wildlife refuge. Course selection is first-come, first choice with paid registration.

Event registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. 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 chance drawing ticket for $20. The drawing will take place at the event. Those purchasing tickets need not be present to win.

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.

Community leaders and volunteers organize the golf classic. Event co-chairs are Amy Craddock and Leigh Spradling. Other members of the golf committee include Santi Bulnes, Lana Grimsley, Kathy Myer, Jeff Riley, Kathy Simonsen, Greg Sparkman, and Kristina Weaver.

The foundation welcomes all businesses and organizations to participate and support the event. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available beginning at $500.
