Plaza Construction, a construction management and general contracting firms, says it hosted its 15th annual charity Golf Invitational on May 24 at the La Gorce Country Club in Miami Beach. More than 100 golfers and volunteers helped raise roughly $175,000 for the Voices For Children Foundation, Inc., which advocates for the support and protection of abused, abandoned and neglected children in Miami-Dade County.
The tournament was followed by a cocktail hour and awards ceremony, where participants listened to remarks from Brad Meltzer, chairman and CEO of Plaza Construction, and Nelson Hincapie, CEO of Voices for Children.
“Plaza has been supporting Voices for Children since 2015, but this year is extra special because it was a challenging year for a lot of people, and yet we still managed to raise a significant amount to further the goals of this amazing organization,” said Meltzer. “We hope the money raised this year, in the middle of a pandemic, will make an even bigger impact on the lives of these children in our community.”
“The event is a continuation of Plaza’s efforts to support the local community during these difficult times,” the company said in a statement. “Partners, subcontractors and Plaza volunteers came together for a day of fun on the links and a little competition, all of which supported a meaningful cause.”
