On Saturday, June 4, 2016, Abe Brown Ministries held their 5th Annual Abe Brown Legacy Golf Tournament. Anthony “Booger” McFarland, a two-time winner of the Super Bowl, hosted the sold-out tournament at the Innisbrook Resort’s newly restored Copperhead Golf Course. Booger is a college football analyst for SEC Network, the 24/7 multi-platform network devoted to the Southeastern Conference and operated by ESPN.
Office Space Brokers was proud to partner with Abe Brown Ministries as a first-time title sponsor for the event which benefited the ministries’ Family Reunification Program and Food for Life Pantry. “I am so pleased that we are approaching our fifth annual Abe Brown Legacy Golf Tournament,” said Robert Blount. Abe Brown Ministries President. “The golf tournament has been a great success since its inception, in raising awareness for our outreach programs. Abe Brown Ministries is more than just a prison ministry. We hope this year’s event proves to be our most successful in the history of the ministry, and in-turn, allows us to raise more money to help more children and families in need. A big thank you to all the sponsors involved so far in this year’s event. We need more sponsors to continue this great work and carry on Rev. Brown’s passion for helping children and feeding the hungry.” Abe Brown Ministries is a prison ministry, chartered by the state of Florida, with access to all Florida prisons. The Ministry enables people, “the least of these,” in the community to achieve productive and spiritually fulfilling lives, and Office Space Brokers very own John Drinkard and Chelsea Drinkard were on site for the tournament, thrilled to be a part of the distinctive ministries’ efforts to raise money to bring about changed lives for Florida inmate residents.
After a continental breakfast at the course, golfers teed off to a shotgun start at 8 AM. Throughout the day, participants could enter different competitions for various prizes such as the hole-in-one contest to win a 3-year Cadillac lease. After the last hole, a silent auction was held offering a great variety of items to bid on, followed by an awards ceremony and recognition lunch by Glory Days Grill.
