STUART-The 17th Annual Robert F. Novins Memorial Golf for Life Tournament and Reception was a success.  The brother and sister team of Carson Novins and Beth Novins started the tournament in memory of their father, who died of colon cancer.  The amazing committee hosted a fun tournament and this year raised $116,000 to benefit Volunteers in Medicine Clinic.  Friday evening festivities consisted of delicious food, auctions, raffles and dancing to the live band, The Kinected.  Ken Duke, Mike Milizia, Fred Caimotto and Carson himself were auctioned off to the delight of the audience.

More than 200 guests enjoyed the Friday evening reception at Carsons Tavern and 31 teams played in Saturday’s tournament at Stuart Yacht & Country Club.  Everyone was ready to play once the torrential downpour stopped on Saturday. Janet Milici won the Putting Contest and Mike Milizia won the Helicopter Ball Drop.  The overall winning team consisted of Rick Wentworth, Tony Barone, Mike Barone and Rob Walser.  This lucky golf foursome will wear the infamous blueberry blazers while at “The Tav.”

Matilda’s was the Gold Tee Sponsor and White Tee Sponsors include Team Parks, William G. Pembroke, CPA, PA, Carlson Enterprise of the Treasure Coast, and Signature Metal.  Special Beverage Sponsors are Bob and Ralf Massey.
