WCI Communities golf promotion supports Harry Chapin Food Bank

For the fifth consecutive year, WCI Communities has partnered with Harry Chapin Food Bank to create a unique funding opportunity: Supporters who donate $100 to the food bank through the website will receive a complimentary foursome at one of four WCI golf courses in Southwest Florida. For each $100, the food bank can purchase $600 worth of food and supplies.

Last year's promotion raised nearly $19,000, which was leveraged into approximately $114,000 in food products by enabling Harry Chapin Food Bank to access donated items from a variety of partners.

The complimentary foursome certificates are valid for play June 1 through Sept. 30 and are available for purchase now through Sept. 15. Tee time reservations are available two days in advance at the following WCI golf courses:
- Pelican Preserve Golf Club in Fort Myers (
- Raptor Bay Golf Club in Bonita Springs (
- The Colony Golf & Country Club in Bonita Springs (
- Venetian Golf & River Club in Venice (

The Harry Chapin Food Bank solicits, collects and stores quality food for distribution to families in need through a network of more than 150 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades counties that provide food to more than 30,000 people monthly. In 2013, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 17.5 million pounds of food, provided 14.6 million meals and turned every $1 into $6 worth of food for those in need.
