The Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County scored a hole in one with its third-annual outing, raising more than $20,000 to provide links to literacy for children, adults and families who struggle with reading. A total of 40 players took part in the oceanside tournament, which was followed by lunch and a silent auction. The winning foursome was Vincent Delazzero, Trent Hayes, Wayne Warren and Troy Wheat, but the real winners are those the coalition serves. ‘One in seven adults in our county is unable to read and understand information found in books, newspapers and manuals, and nearly half of all third-graders are not reading on grade level,’ said Kristin Calder, CEO of the coalition. ‘Fundraisers like Literacy Links help us ensure that every child and every adult in Palm Beach County can read.’
