Golfing for Good

Founded in 1997, Daily’s is a privately held convenience store chain, with multiple stores across Florida. Daily’s has been actively involved in charity from the time of its establishment. 

On Nov, 11th Daily’s Foundation organized a 2-day charity event at Sea Island, Georgia that involved a golf tournament and dinner. Major organizations gathered intending to donate and raise money for many Foundations that are actively involved in public service. Through this event, Daily’s Foundation raised about $455,000 for Nemours and the Tim Tebow foundation. From which Nemours Children’s Health System received $350,000. And the remaining $105,000 went to the Tim Tebow Foundation. Funds received by Nemours will be used by the Nemours Specialty care’s hematology/oncology department. And the Tim Tebow Foundation will use it in their anti-human trafficking ministry.

Nemours is a non-profit health organization for children established around 70 years ago. They have ranked 14th for National Institutes of Health research in the nation. Nemours funds around 150 free-standing hospitals for children. KidsHealth.org which is the world’s most visited child care website is also run by Nemours. It serves around 1.7 Million patients annually, Nemours health care is available in 5 states including Delaware, New Jersey, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. It also runs many other initiatives that are very helpful for many individuals.

Nemours CEO Dr. Larry Moss had many positive things to say about the Daily’s Foundation. He said that this contribution had a very positive impact on the families and children that are served by us. Through this support, we can enhance and provide our world-renowned and highly specialized health care services provided by Nemours to every patient served by us. He even said that Daily’s Foundation is one of its best corporate partners that understands how important it is to invest in our Future.

Nemours also invited many of its previous patients to the dinner so that they can share their experience with others. Caleb, a Nemours cancer patient, who was only 18 months when diagnosed with neuroblastoma. His mother, Katie, shared their story of fighting cancer with the help of the care team at Nemours for almost 3 years. And at the age of 4, Caleb is finally stable.

The Daily’s CEO and President Aubrey Edge also acknowledged how important it is for big organizations and foundations to help and improve the future of their community, by saving the lives of children in these challenging times.
