2008 Golf Tournament and Dinner Event
“Celebrate The Children”
Our second annual Bobby Resciniti Healing Hearts Foundation Golf Tournament & Dinner fundraiser was held on Friday, November 07, 2008 — at the TPC at Heron Bay Golf Club in beautiful Coral Springs, Florida. Heron Bay Golf Club and the Coral Springs Marriott Hotel, Golf Club & Convention Center.
It was an absolutely amazing event. We had 180 golfers and close to 800 people attended our dinner.
The one and only Fabulons performed at our 2008 dinner event! The Fabulons have been the opening act for numerous Rock & Roll legends, including The Temptations, Dion, Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons, Grand Funk Railroad, The Grassroots, Lou Christie, The Rascals, Peter Noone (Herman’s Hermit’s), Chubby Checker, Bo Diddley, The Drifters, The Shirelles, Roy Orbison, Gary Puckett, Tommy James & Shondells, The Buckinghams, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Turtles, Blood Sweat & Tears, The Duprees, Martha & The Vandellas, Eric Burdon & The New Animals, and more!!
We had 36 foursomes for golf and one VIP with every foursome. 13 alumni Miami Dolphins and other sports celebrities from different teams played and even a legendary rock star joined us – Nicko McBrain from Iron Maiden!!!
The best part of golf event for the Resciniti family was the Sheriff SWAT teams and SWAT trucks that came out AND the Sheriff helicopter landed and started off the tournament. They came back and took Nick Resciniti and Bob Resciniti for a 20 minute ride. It was awesome. When the copter landed….It was very emotional as Bobby’s father actually visualized Bobby walking off the copter towards him.
Justin Fiorilli, presented (privately) the Resciniti family with a United States Flag that was framed. It actually flew over the Capitol for an entire day in Bobby’s name honoring his life and continued legacy.
Diane recognized each Criminal Justice scholarship recipient (eight) from PBCC by having them come up to the stage – The foundation donated $25,000.00 to help these students fulfill their dream to be a police officer.…but…the most memorable part (other than the portrait presentations) for the Resciniti family during the dinner was ….
…. The Sheriff’s department presented Bobby’ family with a very special award – he received his badge!
This letter serves to authorize BOBBY RESCINITI is
recognized by the Broward Sheriff’s Office as an Honorary
Deputy Sheriff posthumously.
There is no doubt Bobby would have successfully entered
into the law enforcement profession had he not lost his life at such
a young age.
May the Resciniti family find peace in knowing Bobby’s
dream of joining the law enforcement family is fulfilled by
designation if this badge, # 09.09.1984.
Sheriff of Broward County
A special thanks goes to Sheriff Jim Engle!!!!_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The dinner event was amazing!
Family, close friends and all of our Publix family came to Celebrate the Children! We are VERY grateful to all of the people that came out to share the evening with us. It is a night we won’t ever forget.
Our theme this year was in fact, “Celebrate the Children”.
The name came from a talented singer and songwriter, Alan Pederson. He lost his 18 year old daughter, Ashley eight years ago. He dedicates all his work to bereaved parents, touring the entire United States. We honored Ashley’s father – Alan with a beautiful portrait. After he accepted his gift, he sang four songs. I Remember You, I Chase Butterflies; I Hold this Candle and last – Celebrate the Children. It was a very touching and emotional part of the evening.
Before Alan, we had 10 other portrait presentations. Families came from Pennsylvania, Colorado, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Sarasota, Leigh Acres, Miami and the Broward and Palm Beach County areas. Each family came on stage to receive their gift while Bob read what they wanted to be said about their child. It was beautiful and emotional.
We gave awards in three different categories – The Bobby Resciniti Corporate Sponsor Award – Publix Supermarkets, The Bobby Resciniti Humanitarian award – Mike Flora and The Bobby Resciniti Community Service award – Scott Fiorilli.
Joe Rose, former Miami Dolphin and current WQAM radio host and TV celebrity, emceed the entire event. He was great. For the last two years, he has given us his time. The entire evening was a little better because of Joe.
We had raffles, live and silent auctions, a 50/50 raffle and a drawing for a 42” flat screen TV.
