Members of Siesta Key Village rallied together again to put on a golf tournament to benefit Kurt Becker. Becker, who worked as a bartender on the Key for the past eight years, was paralyzed when he fell off a ladder in June.
The tournament was sponsored by The Old Salty Dog and was held Saturday, Sept. 8, at the University Country Club. There were a total of 34 teams, 136 golfers and more than 36 hole sponsors. There were a number of donations from local businesses that were raffled off.
Becker was in attendance and greeted golfers as they checked in and then rode around the course in a golf cart. John Saputo and Joe Furtaw, of Gold Coast Eagle Distributing, supplied beer for the event and hosted the after-party at the Gold Coast Eagle warehouse.
