The National Association of Bahamians (NAB) recently held its first fundraising Golf Tournament at the Bonaventure Resort & Country Club, in Weston, Florida, in celebration of The Bahamas’ 43rd anniversary of independence.
The event, held in conjunction with the Bahamas Consulate office attracted some one hundred participants and more than a dozen sponsors.
Earl Miller, NAB’s Board Member and organizer of the tournament said he was very pleased with the level of support he received from the business community, especially those from the Caribbean diaspora. “We could not have achieved the level of success without their sponsorship and support. Additionally, the tournament provided a fantastic opportunity for us to connect and engage with each other in a relaxed setting while raising much needed funds that benefited Bahamian college students studying in Florida and the underprivileged children residing in Florida through the Dreams and Visions Organization,” he said.
Sponsors for the Golf Tournament included: The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism (BMOT), Miami Dade County, Nat Moore & Associates, Black Enterprise, Becker & Poliakoff Legal & Business Strategists, The Out Islands Promotion Board, Lexington Hotel, Shula’ Hotel & Golf Resort, Indigo Hotel, Valentines Residences, Skyline Exhibits & Graphics Service, Florida Partners Foundation, Southern Boating, Family Christian Association of America (FCCA), Bimini Big Game Resort, Old Bahama Bay, Breezes Superclubs, Resorts World Bimini and Treasure Cay Beach Resort.
