Time really does fly. For the last 10 years, our Chapter has grown significantly to serve the children and veterans of Martin and St. Lucie Counties.
In February, over 100 people gathered to celebrate the grand opening of our newest program location at the Boys and Girls Club of St. Lucie County, Westside Complex. The construction of this facility is by far our most ambitious endeavor in the history of our Chapter.
The project was funded by The Andrew and Robin Hunt Philanthropic Fund and included the construction of a new 35,000 square foot artificial turf golf learning facility that includes a tee line, 3 putting greens, chipping areas, colorful target greens and a multi-use field. We have also set up a new St. Lucie County office at the Westside Club Complex.
Greg McLaughlin, CEO of First Tee, joined Andrew and Robin Hunt, Chapter and BGC staff and directors, coaches, dignitaries, and of course students to cut the ribbon on the new facility.
“Robin and I could not be more excited,” said Chapter President Andrew Hunt. “We anticipate introducing the life skills curriculum of First Tee to hundreds of children each year at the Westside Club Complex. We are so proud of this partnership with Boys & Girls Club and Westside Church.”
