‘Night Of 5000’ & Charity Golf Tourney To Be Held Apr. 21!
Saturday, April 21 - There are two great local events to check out today. At 1 p.m., the Aaron Klingebiel Charity Golf Tournament is being held at the newly renovated Quail Hollow Golf & Country Club, to benefit the Klingebiel family. Just a few months after a tragic car accident in February of 2011 in which Jennifer Klingebiel suffered a shattered pelvis and daughter Courtney Klingebiel sustained a shattered left arm and broken left leg, Jennifer’s son Aaron was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He began six weeks of radiation treatments on February 29. Proceeds from the golf tournament will help to pay for the family’s medical-related expenses.
For more information, contact Hollie Topash at 780-2511 or Bill Austin at 417-1170. Quail Hollow Golf & Country Club is located at 6225 Old Pasco Rd.
Then, at 6 p.m., the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) New Tampa Junior Woman’s Club will be presenting its 15th annual “Night of 5000” black-tie-optional charity ball and fund-raising gala at Hunter’s Green Country Club (10550 Longwater Run Dr.) in New Tampa.
Join the “Juniors” for an elegant evening of dining, dancing, casino-style gaming and honoring our brave wounded servicemen and women, as the proceeds of the evening will benefit the Tampa Fisher House, the amazing residence housing the families of the heroes being treated at the James A. Haley Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital, which is located on Bruce B. Downs (BBD) Blvd., just south of E. Fletcher Ave.
For reservations to attend — or sponsor “casino” tables — at the “Night of 5000,” call Isabelle Jensen at (414) 559-3027 or visit GFWCNewTampaJuniors.org.
