OAKLAND PARK— On Saturday, December 13th the South Florida PGA Foundation dedicated a home to a deserving family in Oakland Park just in time for the holidays. This dedication was the third one the SFPGA Foundation has been a part of since 2010. The mission of the South Florida PGA Foundation is to impact lives throughout the community, and on Saturday they were able to carry out that mission.
From late May through September more than 50 PGA Professionals volunteered 700 hours to help build the home located in Oakland Park. In the audience on Saturday, supporting the family were various members of the South Florida PGA Section and Foundation board, in addition two PGA Professionals who volunteered their time to help with the project.
Rohema Cortijo-Witten and Brian Golden, along with their three children AJ, Matese and Amari, were given the keys to their new home, just in time for the holiday season. On behalf of the family Rohema thanked all those in the crowd who made this day possible.
“It is moving to be a part of such a special occasion. To watch a family achieve their dream, knowing how hard they have worked is what this is all about” says SFPGA Foundation President and PGA Professional Tom Wildenhaus.
