Gentleman’s Foundry was in attendance today at the “Fore on The Floor Charity Golf Classic” for Wounded Warriors in the Miami Beach Golf Club.
Returning for its second year in a row, “Fore on the Floor” Charity Golf Classic tees off on Wednesday, March 17th at the Miami Beach Golf Club. Disco Donnie Presents, Life In Color and Matt Gavin Enterprises have teamed up for a fun-filled day on the course with live-entertainment, music, and golf. “Fore on the Floor” will honor the sacrifices members of the military and their families make to protect our nation’s freedoms and civil liberties.
In an effort to raise awareness, funds, and morale for U.S. Troops, Wounded Warriors, and their families, “Fore on the Floor” and affiliates have partnered with the Watering Seeds Organization (WSO). WSO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Brady Mazzola to create sports rehabilitation and recreational opportunities for special needs individuals. With over 2.5 million active men and women currently serving in our armed forces, WSO is dedicated to raising morale and empowering our wounded warriors through education, media, inspirational sports programs, and live entertainment events. They are supported by the U.S. Department of Defense and Veteran Affairs, in addition to celebrities including: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Muhammad Ali, Paul McCartney, Wayne Gretzky, Ray Romano, Jessica Biel-Timberlake, Jason Alexander, and many more.
Additionally, the Stand Up and Play Foundation (SUPF) has partnered with “Fore on the Floor” to further expand its outreach and initiative. SUPF will host an adaptive golf clinic for wounded warriors, and to be conducted by SUPF Founder, Anthony Netto – an international ambassador for challenged golf and the best wheelchair golfer in the world. Netto will be accompanied by Tommy Morrissey, a 5-year-old golf prodigy who was born with one arm; Tommy frequently showcases for the Professional Golf Association (PGA).
The proceeds from the event will go towards purchasing a specialized golf cart called a para-mobile that offers wheelchair users a new level of freedom and independence, by enabling them to stand up and play golf and other sports. For more info on the cause campaign, or

Gentleman’s Foundry products were distributed as part of gift bags to those in attendance. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to be apart of this event, to help repay the men and women who’ve served this country in any way we can.
I was honored when I was told we’d have the opportunity to have our products placed at the “Fore on Floor” Charity Golf Classic. My father is a veteran, who served in the Marines, thus I’ve always had an appreciation for this country’s armed forces.
It was inspiring, watching Tommy Morrissey play a round and as well as seeing Anthony Netto’s passion for the sport, which drove him to create the Paramobile.
I can’t properly express how gracious Gentleman’s Foundry is for having been included in this event. Thank you gents, and please, support our troops.
