Engage Estero was proud to sponsor the Annual Breaking Par at Grandezza golf tournament and gala. This fund-raiser is hosted by LEAD Estero, a local non-profit founded by youth to support area students.

LEAD Estero thanks all who made this year’s event the best-ever!

Goal was to raise $100,000 in net proceeds to:

  • Fund scholarships for continuing education for students graduating from Estero High School (EHS) … to college or Trade School of their choice.
  • Establish a $25,000 Endowment at FGCU for EHS graduates who attend FGCU.
  • Fund LEAD Estero Leadership Camp for 35 EHS students. Summer Camp will be July 17-21 at Daveler & Kauanui School of Entrepreneurship (FGCU).

Thanks to the volunteers, participants, sponsors, donors, and The Club at Grandezza … the Event net proceeds exceeded $106,000!

Engage Estero encourages everyone to support the students and schools in the greater Estero area. Our Education Council is actively engaged with education leaders to support their efforts.
