Once again, Dimmitt Automotive Group is pleased to play an active role in the betterment of the communities of which we serve by sponsoring the 6th Annual Abe Brown Legacy Golf Tournament. The sold-out tournament took place on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at the beautiful Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, FL.
The day-long event included a continental breakfast, lunch, 4-person scramble, premium golfer prizes, and awards. Proceeds from team entry fees and tournament sponsorships go toward the efforts of Abe Brown Ministries founded by retired Hillsborough teacher and football coach Abe Brown.
Brown worked in the Hillsborough County School System for 38 years, 23 of which were spent as both teacher and coach. He retired from active coaching in 1972, and in 1976 was saddened to learn one of his former football players had been charged with murder. Upon visiting this young man in prison, Coach Brown realized that while he had taught young men how to play football, he had failed to teach them how to live. To this day, The Ministry enables at-risk citizens to achieve productive and spiritually fulfilling lives. More information on Abe Brown Ministries can be found at their website www.abebrown.org.
