The 16th Annual Phil Galvano Golf Classic was held this past week raising over $200,000 for Manatee County’s public schools through the Manatee Education Foundation.  Former member of the Florida House of Representatives and candidate for the State Senate, Bill Galvano & family hosted the event with a special guest appearance by Emmy Award-winning actor Armond Assante and repeat appearance by golf legend, Tony Jacklin.  Eagle level sponsors were invited to a special luncheon with Assante and a private round of golf with Galvano at the Longboat Key Club.  Assante also made a special appearance at the VIP reception Thursday evening at the LBK.  Friday’s sold out tournament was held at the Legacy Golf Club in Lakewood Ranch with record breaking expectations in sponsorships and donations.

I have had the pleasure of photographing this event for the past 5 years now and am so honored to be apart of it.  With 3 young boys in the manatee public school system, I am thrilled to see such support from our community.
