this is my 6th year photographing the annual phil galvano golf classic which raised over 300K for the students of manatee county this year.  hosted by senator bill galvano along side his family and through the work of the manatee education foundation with numerous sponsors throughout all of florida.  a special surprise visit from governor rick scott during the private vip luncheon at the longboat key club for the vip eagle sponsors.  the legacy golf in lakewood ranch has been hosting this annual tournament for 17 years.  it is named in honor of senator galvano’s late father who was a recognized leader and golf legend.

although this is not my typical photography genre, it’s dear to my heart as i have children in the school system that benefit from this organization.  so i am grateful to be invited back and help contribute to the children of manatee county.
