Ballenisles Charities Foundation Supports The First Tee

The BallenIsles Charities Foundation (BICF) was established in 2011 with the goal of Making a Difference to local not-for-profit organizations in areas surrounding our residential community located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. The launch of the Foundation underscored a commitment to those civic and tax exempt organizations that make such a difference, not only to BallenIsles residents, but to so many of their neighbors in the surrounding cities, towns and communities.

BICF recently conducted their annual fundraising events for the 2014 grant distributions, including a one day golf tournament over 36-holes at BallenIsles. Pictured above, chapter participants were present on each of the eight par 3 holes to hit a tee shot and putt with the members.

“The First Tee kids impressed our members with their shot making and putting skills,” said Bobby Hendel, chapter Board Member and BallenIsles resident. “It is a special experience to meet the young people who actually benefit from the grant.”

BICF generously awarded $10,000.00 to support the mission and programs of the The First Tee of The Palm Beaches. BICF will continue to render financial and in-kind support to area organizations providing civic and cultural programs, community and social services, hospital, health services and education programs.
