Joined by USMC members of Central Florida, Genesis Communications and tournament participants were credited for collecting up to 200 toys for children in the Central Florida area for the holiday season.

Once all toys were loaded to completely fill a van, 1080 The Team started the two man scramble style tournament. With heavy fog to start the morning, as the day preceded the sun began to shine and it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon. The day continued with a post tournament luncheon that included an award ceremony and raffle, allowing all golfers to walk away with something with their help to raise toys for the children.
