Custom Rod & Reel Inks Title Sponsorship Deal With Conine All-Star Golf Classic
The Conine All-Star Golf Classic, an annual fundraiser for the Conine Clubhouse at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, is pleased to announce Custom Rod & Reel will remain its title sponsor for the next five years. The deal extends a philanthropic partnership between the South Florida-based company and the children’s hospital’s nonprofit foundation that began in 2012.
The celebrity golf event, which will tee off for the 28th consecutive year in January, underwrites expenses at the clubhouse, a hotel-like facility where families can stay for free while their child is hospitalized.
“It’s not fair for any family to have to bring their child to the hospital, let alone stay for long periods of time. That family, any family, wants to stay as close to their child as possible, and that’s what the Conine All-Star Golf Classic funds go towards,” said Daniella Jordan, a representative of Custom Rod & Reel.
The Conine All-Star Golf Classic, hosted by former major league ballplayer Jeff Conine and his wife, Cindy, has raised more than $7 million to underwrite the facility’s operating expenses. More than 13,000 families have resided there, staying close to sick kids during critical times in their lives.
“This tournament has had an incredibly long run and we wouldn’t have been able to have the impact we do without Custom Rod & Reel,” said Jeff Conine. “They have been extremely generous with us and a difference-maker for the families we assist.”
The 2022 event will take place January 17 at the Fort Lauderdale Country Club and features a celebrity in each foursome.
