Biennial Golf Tournament

The Ed Brennan* Memorial Banquet and Golf Tournament is held every other spring at Club Pelican Bay and serves as the primary fundraising event for Founders Scholarship Fund.

The next event will be held Monday and Tuesday, April 8 and 9, 2024.


The 2022 Event was a huge success with over $1 million dollars raised. Much gratitude and thanks go to the Event Committee, FSF Board, FSF Sponsors, and Donors.

*The first Board was comprised of Edward J. Brennan, Robert H. Caldwell and Jean Harford. Ed Brennan was the first to suggest the golf fundraising event and served as its Chairman. Ed Brennan succeeded Rocky Caldwell as Chairman of the Board for Founders Scholarship Fund. In 2000, the event was dedicated to the memory of Ed Brennan who passed away in 1999.
