Two-Georges at the Cove Helps Support the Jim & Jan Moran Club with Annual Golf & Fishing Events
Twice a year Two Georges at the Cove makes kids their number one priority by planning and organizing a golf tournament and billfish tournament. Both events offer a fun time on Deer Creek greens and the deep blue sea while benefiting members of the Jim and Jan Moran Boys & Girls Club in Deerfield, Beach.
Denise Buzelli, The Cove’s Project Coordinator has planned each event with the help of the staff, their families and anyone else she can recruit. Steve Scaggs acquired The Cove in 2010 and continued the giving tradition. Steve’s roots run deep with the Boys & Girls Clubs. A distant relative helped start the Boys & Girls Clubs of Baltimore. The Cove’s vendors, customers and local businesses support the events through sponsorships, donations and participation. The billfish tournament, combined with the golf outing held in September, generated more than $30,000 this year and has raised a total of $359,000 for the Club.
The Jim and Jan Moran Club enrolls 1,000 local youth each year. Last year members spent 213,000 hours in the club! Opened in 1999, the Club is an oasis complete with a state of the art gym, computer room, game rooms and a spacious “backyard” that includes a football and baseball field. Moran club members boast a 99% grade progression rate and an 80% high school graduation rate.
Each time Two Georges produced these two events, our kids won! Thanks to the Two Georges staff, customers and sponsors.
