CLEARWATER – FrankCrum recently presented a check to Trinity Cafe for $125,000. The funds were raised through the seventh annual FrankCrum Golf Invitational.
This year’s donation represents the largest amount raised in the history of the tournament. This brings the cumulative amount raised by the annual event beyond the $600,000 mark.
More than seven years ago, Frank W. Crum Jr., president and CEO of FrankCrum, expressed a desire to host a fundraiser for his favorite charity. Thus, the FrankCrum Invitational benefiting Trinity Cafe was born. This year’s event took place on Feb. 18 at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club. More than 268 golfers participated.
In addition to presenting the golf tournament proceeds, three FrankCrum employees also presented an additional $9,300 for Trinity Cafe from the company’s “Jeans Day” initiative. A majority of the company’s 200 employees choose to contribute $1 from their weekly paychecks to Trinity Cafe, in exchange for the privilege of wearing jeans every Friday. Colleen Rowe, Luis Rivera and Carla Mejia were chosen to present the funds to Jeff Darrey, Trinity Cafe chairman, and Cindy Davis, program director.
Trinity Cafe, a 501(c)(3) nondenominational charity, has been a lifeline for the hungry and homeless in Tampa Bay since 2001, having served more than 921,000 restaurant quality meals. Visit www.trinitycafe.org.
