Smiling Fore Life

Supported ProgramsIn April 2010, the South Florida PGA Foundation created Smiling Fore Life, a program encouraging SFPGA Professionals to visit local children’s hospitals weekly. These visits help bring golf into  children’s lives who may be experiencing hardship, and allows children an opportunity to forget about their challenges and enjoy a fun and new activity.

There are currently three hospitals participating in this program, Joe DiMaggio Children’s hospital in Hollywood, Florida,  St. Mary’s Parent-Child Center in West Palm Beach, and The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers.  The program affords SFPGA Professionals the opportunity to get more involved in the local community.
