Disabled Veterans Insurance Careers Inc. is planning a unique fund-raiser consisting of a dream weekend for outdoorsmen and sports enthusiasts. The BB&T-Oswald Trippe and Company Surf & Turf Experience will take place Oct. 18-20, 2013 at the historic Tarpon Lodge on Pine Island.
The field is limited to only 60 players that will comprise 20 teams. The competition includes fishing and golfing components. Teams will fish with a licensed charter captain for redfish in the backwaters of Pine Island Sound. Leaders will be determined by most aggregate inches of redfish recorded. After fishing, guests will proceed to South Seas Island Resort to compete in the second element of the competition; the same teams will play nine holes of golf overlooking Redfish Pass. The leaderboard will be determined by the lowest gross team scores and the overall team champions will be determined by the aggregate scores in both golf and fishing.
Guests will enjoy all the amenities at Tarpon Lodge for the weekend, including two cocktail hour receptions, two gourmet dinners and two breakfasts and lunches. In addition, every player will receive special, custom commemorative apparel and gift items.
"Remember, the field is limited to just 60 players" said Gary Bryant, president and chief executive officer of DVIC. "This niche event will be an experience of a lifetime."
Net proceeds from the BB&T-Oswald Trippe and Company Surf & Turf Experience will help support the mission of DVIC which is to educate, train and generate meaningful employment opportunities for physically disabled veterans who will excel at proactively cross-selling personal lines insurance products on behalf of leading independent insurance agencies.
