PORT ST. LUCIE – Mike Crary represented the Frances Langford Foundation at a fundraising golf tournament for Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. The non-profit benefits troubled and displaced children and supports family services.
“It was an honor to participate in a worthwhile cause on behalf of the foundation,” said law firm managing partner Mike Crary.
Evans Crary Jr,, former managing partner at Crary Buchanan, is co-trustee of the Frances Langford Foundation and Mike Crary’s father. The foundation, founded by the famous actress of the same name, provides financial gifts to non-profit organizations on the Treasure Coast.
Boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 18 live at Florida Sheriff Youth Ranches camps. The youngsters work, study, play and pray in a program that helps them develop into productive citizens who make positive contributions to their communities.
The 2011 golf tournament in St. Lucie County raised more than $63,000 to bring the total collected over the 25 years of the tournament to more than $750,000, said St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.
The tournament was held May 14 at Legacy Golf and Tennis Club. The Frances Langford Foundation had Scott Wade, Mark Corson, and Dr. Hal Tobias as guests in its foursome.
