Please know that the revenue generated from this tournament as well as future fun events will be used for much needed roof repairs to the chamber building. I know that our community appreciates the many events, seminars and workshops that the chamber offers, free of charge, at 1651 Sun City Center Plaza. We are a valuable resource located here in the center of town. However, although we volunteer quite a bit of time and effort towards the betterment of our community, remember  that we are a non-profit organization with a limited budget and as you know, major repairs such as the necessary work needed on the roof, can be extremely costly. Any donation towards these repairs would be greatly appreciated and I would certainly be pleased to acknowledge your generosity in future articles.
