FMT Charity Golf Ball Bash Set For April 26

Florida Marine Transporters (FMT) will host its 18th annual FMT Charity Golf Ball Bash at the Beau Chene Country Club in Mandeville, La., with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. on April 26.

Proceeds from the event will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Since children are so near and dear to everyone, we thought it best to give this great organization our best effort in raising money for their cause,” said Ty Dolese, assistant controller, in a released statement. “No matter the cost, both go above and beyond to care for those in need. This year’s event will be the best yet, but we need your help to make it happen.”

The cost to play is $500 for an individual or $1,750 for a team. Those interested in sponsoring the event can do so for $500 and will be recognized in an upcoming edition of The Waterways Journal. The cost of sponsorship does not include play time.

Entry forms can be sent to Donor Services at by April 18. Breakfast will be provided, with additional food provided by FMT vendors on the course.
