OCOEE, Fla. – Ahead of Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Monday, September 28th, Paul Roy’s Minuteman Press franchise in Ocoee, Florida held their second annual charity golf tournament to benefit the Dana Farber Cancer Research Institute in conjunction with The Jimmy Fund. According to Roy, the golf tournament was a rousing success, raising three times more than last year’s event with more than $13,000 in donations.
The charity event featured 90 golfers, several corporate sponsorships, and was a great time. Minuteman Press in Ocoee donated 100% of the marketing materials to help promote the event including flyers, posters, signage, and more.” I’ve always wanted to do a charity event and I grew up playing in Jimmy Fund golf events,” said Roy. “I was talking to a friend of mine about doing a golf tournament and with breast cancer awareness month, we thought it would be a good opportunity to do something special for a great cause.”
Jeff Robey, Minuteman Press Regional Vice President for Florida and the Caribbean, commented, “Paul has really embraced our suggestion to get active in the local community. He joined Rotary and in a short time has become president of his club. He understands that when you are active in clubs and organizations you get an opportunity to meet and know the local mover and shakers in the community. They in turn will help you to build your business.”
Roy concluded, “So many of our families have been touched and affected by cancer. My mother has been battling cancer for two years, and she’s doing well but a day goes by we don’t think about it. This is our way of helping and giving back. We are personally invested in this, and this means a lot to all of us. “
