cafe for kids golf tournament success

The fourth annual CAFE for Kids golf tournament, held at the Slammer & Squire course at World Golf Village, raised about $20,000 for the Community Alliance Funding Education (CAFE), a private foundation for public education in northwest St. Johns County. Sponsored by the builders of Murabella, 94 golfers participated in the tournament. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward technology purchases for Mill Creek Elementary.

In addition, Rick Pariani, vice president of development and design for Davidson Development Inc., presented the organization with a $2,000 check from the local branch of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The money will be used toward landscaping the school's entrance and exit after International Golf Parkway is widened later this year.

CAFE is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to increase the learning opportunities for students, provide resources that support student learning, enhance the arts in the educational lives of the students, support technology as a vital learning tool and assist in preparing students for the 21st century.

chamber receives certification of excellence

The St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce has achieved the designation of Certified Chamber of Commerce in Florida. The designation was approved by the Florida Association of Chamber Professionals in early February. The certification assures businesses joining the chamber that they are investing in a not-for-profit corporation whose revenues are used for business and public good and not personal gain. The designation will be reevaluated after five years to ensure the chamber continues the high standards set by the six-month certification process.
