What: Chip In For DLC 2nd Annual Golf Tournament

Event Description:
Calling all golf enthusiasts with a passion for helping those in need. You, your friends and fellow golf loving business associates are invited to tee off for mental health at the David Lawrence Center's Chip in For DLC 2nd Annual Golf Tournament. Enjoy a beautiful, feel-good fall afternoon while supporting a great cause that continues to touch the lives of thousands in our community.

This year’s tournament will be held at the award-winning Rookery at Marco Golf Course. Recently redesigned by acclaimed golf course designers Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy, The Rookery at Marco blends a challenging private resort course with serene, native surroundings nestled in Florida’s enchanting wetlands. At more than 7,100 yards in length, the playing experience includes fast greens, pristine turf condition, five teeing locations and a state-of-the-art GPS yardage system.

The tournament will be played in a scramble with four-person teams. Participants who enter as individuals will be placed on a team. Following the tournament will be a casual prime rib Awards Dinner with a cash bar in the beautifully appointed, recently renovated, Old Florida style Rookery Club House. Spouses, guests and other non-golfers are welcome to join in on the dinner festivities where the tournament’s winning team will be announced and prizes will be given away.

Tickets include green fees and a cart, buffet deli lunch and the prime rib dinner. The fun filled day will also include contests and a $100,000 Hole in One.

All proceeds will benefit the mission, operations, and expansion of the David Lawrence Center's innovative, comprehensive inpatient, outpatient, residential, and community based prevention and treatment services for the one in four local children and adults who experience mental health, emotional, psychological, and substance abuse challenges.

Chip In For DLC is presented by the David Lawrence Center in partnership with the DLC Young Executives.

What: "Live Life In Color! 2016 Gala"

Event Description:
Event Description: The David Lawrence Center and Foundation’s 2016 Live Life in Color! Gala will be an imaginative experience of colorful expression like no other. This year, rather than a faraway land, we turn our attention to life, lived right here, in Paradise. White sands, blue skies, golden sunsets, lush greenery, colors explode all around us and entangle us in a web of vibrant beauty. Despite this beauty, far too many people in our community spend their days wandering in a hazy fog, their vision clouded by anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and addiction. With help from the David Lawrence Center, these men, women and children are learning to wipe away the gray and begin to live life in color.

Live Life in Color! will feature nationally known performance artist, entertainer and speaker Michael Israel who pairs his renowned paint performance with heart-pounding live music that captivates his audience. This is an interactive event that leaves onlookers feeling exhilarated and fulfilled. His art will be auctioned off after the dinner in support of the David Lawrence Center. To learn more about Michael’s unique art, please visit

Michael will create five 6’ canvases which will be auctioned off later in the night. Half of these proceeds will go to the David Lawrence Center. There will also be a silent auction during the evening.

The event will include hors d’oeuvres, a three course plated dinner, dessert course with full bar and table wine service.

The evening's suggested attire is cocktail attire.

Previous years' events have been named the Best Themed Event by Gulfshore Life magazine, one of the Spring Season's most memorable fundraising parties by Naples Illustrated magazine and Best Event Theme by The Journal.

Proceeds will benefit the mission, operations and expansion of the David Lawrence Center's innovative, comprehensive prevention, intervention and treatment services for the one in four local children and adults who experience behavioral, emotional, psychological and substance abuse challenges.
