Each year, The Sophisticated Gents of Florida partner with the African American Club of The Villages to raise money to support our Scholarship Initiative. Scholarships are awarded to selected high school seniors from Sumter, Marion and Lake County who pursue higher education after graduation from high school. Most of the scholarship recipients are from low income families, and the overwhelming majority are ﬁrst generation in their families to go to college.
The money raised come from donations from members of both organizations and our business and community partners, and from the net proceeds from our annual signature event, the Friendship Golf Tournament. Held in the fall, this fundraiser is open to the public. This year's event will take place on November 7, 2020 at the Harbor Hills Country Club in Lady Lake, Florida.
To donate and/or become a sponsor for this year's event, please complete the Donation form below and click "Pay" when you're ready to be taken to our secure online payment gateway for payment. You will be able to pay online using a valid PayPal account or your credit card.
