3 golfers-

On June 24, 2016, Dean Burnetti Law was proud to host its First Annual Golf Tournament for the children at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital.


The tournament took place at The Club at Eaglebrooke in Lakeland, Florida, and the weather couldn’t have been better.  God certainly smiled on us in the midst of a rainy week when He gave us a bright, sunny day without a cloud in the sky.  Besides the firm’s three attorneys, Dean Burnetti, Tim Coleman, and Scott Graul, present at the tournament was former PGA Tour winner Andy Bean.  Mr. Bean currently plays on the Champions Tour.  Not only did he captivate the crowd with his magnificent speech, but he also donated a rangefinder to the winner of the putting contest.

The day, of course, included golf, but it also featured contests with prizes, a silent auction, a 50/50 contest, a raffle, giveaway goodies, and several door prizes.

Sponsors had the opportunity to purchase signs which we specially designed with each sponsor’s logo and color printed to make them stand apart from the regular black and white text only golf signs.  This made for a colorful backdrop at each tee box along the course.

We hoped to be able to donate $5,000, and were pleasantly surprised once we tallied the proceeds and found that we exceeded our goal.

The 2016 Check Presentation

The tournament was a huge success, and netted $5,027.87 which was donated to the hospital’s Bereavement Fund on July 11, 2016.

It’s not uncommon for people to want to give to assist surgically needy or terminally ill children.  However, too often, when the unthinkable happens and a child passes, the community’s focus turns to the next sick child and forgets the family of the child that died.  Not only are these families left with an immense hole in their hearts and a void in their lives, but their bank accounts are often drained.  In the midst of their grief, they find they have nothing left with which to give their child a decent burial.  That’s where the hospital’s Bereavement Fund comes into play.

The check presentation ceremony included Dean Burnetti Law’s attorneys Dean Burnetti, Tim Coleman, and Scott Graul, and Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Development Officer Anysia McDowall.
