S.F. Fair Golf Classic Recalls John Picano

The annual South Florida Fair Scholarship Golf Classic, one of the community’s oldest charity golf tournaments, returns Saturday, June 15. It will take place at Breakers West Country Club.

This year’s tournament will be in memory of John Picano Jr., who served as public relations director for the South Florida Fair. Picano was a loved and respected leader in the community who passed away Nov. 22, 2012. He was an avid golfer and instrumental in the growth and success of the fair’s golf tournament. Picano’s memory will live on through the South Florida Fair Memorial Golf Tournament.

The popular tournament scores grants for area students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to pursue a college education. The scholarships are awarded at the annual South Florida Fair in January.

In addition to playing a world-class golf course, each participating golfer receives special souvenir gifts, two free passes to the 2014 South Florida Fair, a continental breakfast, a buffet luncheon and the opportunity to win outstanding raffle prizes. The format is a shotgun scramble divided into three flights beginning at 8:30 a.m.
