Ybor Chamber to host 6th Annual Golf Tournament

 Ybor Tees Off at Temple Terrace Course

(Tampa, Florida)  The Ybor City Chamber of Commerce is preparing to hold its 6th Annual Golf Tournament at the Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club - Monday, May 16th.

The Chamber Tournament benefits the Lois Gaston Scholarship at Hillsborough County Community College.


Tournament check-in begins at 11:00 AM with a shotgun-start at 1:00 PM.  Lunch featuring Ybor fair from Carmine's and a Cuban-themed dinner are included.  Raffle prizes include room nights, restaurant discounts and golf paraphernalia.  Complimentary beer and cigars are provided to participants.


"We always bring a bit of Ybor City to our tournament no matter where we play, said Tournament Chair, David Kemper of WilsonMiller Stantec. "This year, we are adding a "Team Trophy" that will provide 'bragging rights' for the company who's team wins the Chamber's Tournament."


This is a great opportunity for Chamber members and their guests to mix-it-up with business leaders from Ybor's unique Design/Build, Media Production, Hospitality and emerging high-tech clusters.  Started in 2005, by then Chair Wes Miller, the Ybor City Chamber Golf Tournament has benefited a student each year in the Motion Media Program at the Ybor City Campus of HCC.  Chamber funds are matched by the state and students utilize them to produce a project that can help them get into an advanced film, television or digital production program.
