2011 Ybor logo icon (Tampa, Florida)  The Ybor City Chamber of Commerce is preparing to hold its 8th Annual Golf Tournament at Emerald Greens Golf Resort & Country Club Monday, May 13th.  The Chamber Tournament benefits the Lois Gaston Scholarship at Hillsborough Community College's Ybor City Campus for students in its media programs.


Tournament registration begins at 11:00 AM with a shotgun-start at 12:30 PM.  Lunch featuring Ybor fare from Carmine's and dinner at the Club are included.  Raffle and auction items include room nights, restaurant gift certificates and golf outings.  Complimentary beer and cigars are provided.


'We are very proud that HCC has such a strong relationship with the Ybor City Chamber of Commerce," said Golf Committee Chair Dr. Shawn Robinson, President of the HCC Ybor City Campus.  "This scholarship is a great link between our campus and the business community."


"No matter where we play, we always bring a bit of Ybor City to the course," said Tom Keating, President and CEO of the Ybor Chamber. "The traveling team trophy provides 'bragging rights' for the winners of the tournament."  Last year's winners were the de la Grana, Boardman and Bessone Law Firm.


This is a great opportunity for Chamber members and their guests to mix-it-up with business leaders from Ybor's Design/Build, Media Production, Hospitality and emerging high-tech clusters.  Begun in 2005, 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 continue their studies in film, television, radio, graphics, or digital multimedia production.
