It’s not too late to enter the second annual Bluewater Golf and Fishing Invitational tournaments hosted this weekend by the PGA Tour’s Robert Allenby of Jupiter.
Activities include a captain’s meeting Friday at the Admiral’s Cove West clubhouse; a full day of deep sea fishing Saturday followed by a gala dinner Saturday night at Admirals Cove East, which will include live music and live and silent auctions; and golf on Sunday at The Bear’s Club.
Proceeds will benefit special needs children with cancer.
“When I was young I watched one of my best friends pass away from Leukemia and I will never forget it,” Allenby said recently. “What my friend had to endure melted my heart and encouraged me to do whatever I could to help children in need.”
As a result, Allenby has hosted a golf day in his native Melbourne, Australia, for the last 20 years to support his passion of supporting children living with cancer and other life threatening blood disorders.
Now Allenby wants to do the same in Palm Beach County.
“I am proud to call Jupiter home and I want to be able to give back to the community,” he added. “The best way to accomplish this is to do two things that I love, playing golf and going fishing with people who also want to help kids.
Allenby, 40, and his wife Sandy have two children: Harry Jack, 12, and Lily Bella, 10.
