On November 14, 2014 Saglo Development Corporation was proud to participate in the Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Greater Miami Annual Golf Classic at the fabulous new Trump National Doral. The event gave companies an opportunity to sponsor the BBBS event, which helps mentor young at risk kids in the community. Saglo was honored in teaming up with American Real Estate Capital and DTZ Property Services in their foursome which included attendees – Jack Glottmann (Saglo), Hue Chen (Saglo), Bob Bradley (American Real Estate Capital) and Leigh Ann Johnson (DTZ Property Services).
The BBBS of Greater Miami Annual Golf Classic is considered to be one of South Florida’s top three golfing events of the year. The 2-day event kicked off with a festive Polynesian themed VIP party and live auction, followed by a morning shotgun tee off during the 2nd day. Companies featured one or two foursomes with a chance to participate in the tournament. Each golfer was given $300.00 in Titleist golf merchandise, breakfast, a shopping spree, a fully-stocked 19th hole on the course and a post-tournament awards luncheon. More importantly the event earned contributions which will impact the lives of thousands of children in our community. Every $1,500.00 donated to BBBS drastically impacts the life of one child.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami is ranked in the top 30 largest BBBS agencies in the country and is ranked #1 in Florida. The organization provides help for thousands of children each year with a professional and caring adult volunteer providing one on one mentoring. They serve 7,000 children, volunteers and families in the community with a waiting list of 1,000 kids annually from the most underprivileged neighborhoods in Miami. Most of the kids, 60%, are young males and according to BBBS they are in great need of male role models. Women volunteer at a rate of 3 to 1 compared to males.
