Support The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair Scholarship Fund

Dear Friend of The Youth Fair,

I am delighted to let you know that our Fourth Annual Red Thornberry & Miami-Dade County Youth Fair Scholarship Fund Golf Classic will be held on April 2, 2018. Following the golf tournament, the Fourth Annual Surf ‘N Turf Fest will be held. Details for both events are included below.

These two wonderful events are being sponsored by the men and women who are part of the 2018 Youth Fair Concessionaires’ Team. Last year’s events raised almost $70,000. I cannot express how deeply and humbly I appreciate the concessionaires’ kind support of The Youth Fair’s Scholarship Fund. Each and every concessionaire wants to give back to the Miami-Dade County community and assist us in our mission to support education, showcase youth achievement and promote Miami-Dade County’s $2.7 billion agriculture industry.

There are 4 ways you and/or your company or organization can participate and contribute:

  • Participate in the scramble format golf tournament either as an individual or by having friends, neighbors and co-workers join you on the course.
  • Purchase a sponsorship sign(s) by making a donation to The Youth Fair Scholarship Fund. DEADLINE IS MARCH 29, 2018.
  • Purchase tickets to the Surf ‘N Turf Fest. DEADLINE IS MARCH 29, 2018.
  • Make a contribution to The Youth Fair’s Scholarship Fund in the amount of your choice.

This promises to be a sensational day of golf, fun and relaxation on a day the 2018 Youth Fair is closed.

I would ask that you forward this information to other individuals, companies and organizations you believe would like to join in supporting The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair’s Scholarship Fund.

Sponsorships are available and much appreciated. All net proceeds benefit the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition’s Scholarship Fund.
