The Freedom & Virtue Institute (FVI) believes in fostering attitudes and leading initiatives that build off the principle of creating self-reliance among underprivileged children and individuals enduring hardship that wish to better their situations and live a dignified, self-sustainable life. Presently, the Freedom & Virtue Institute conducts three unique causes: The Self-Reliance Clubs (SRC), Dignity of Work and the Effective Compassion Training programs. The Self-Reliance Clubs exist to educate the next generation to understand that they are the champions of their own lives. Through their own initiative, ingenuity, and hard work, they will realize that they have the power to determine the direction of their future.
Representatives from the Print Shop & More and Palm Rinting will be joining FVI for the 7th annual Daniel D. Wright Golf Classic on April 7th at Grandezza Golf and Country Club, located at 11481 Grande Oak Blvd in Estero. There are few sports the exemplify self-reliance more than the competitive sport of golf. The desire and dedication an individual must develop is paramount to their success. The Self Reliance Clubs (SRC), now a national program, provides students with the opportunity to earn money for school and other education related supplies through the achievement of goals, school performance, extra-curricular activities like urban farming, and volunteerism; achievement and reward that comes from initiative, hard work and self-reliance. Proceeds from this effort will go to fund and expand FVI’s Self Reliance Club project, which includes elementary and middle schools in Lee and Collier County.
Registration begins at 7:00 am the day of the tournament and the event includes a continental breakfast, 18 holes of golf at one of the best and most challenging courses in southwest Florida, Masters style luncheon, raffles, and silent auction items, and a short program. Contests with exciting prices are part of this exciting annual event. Individual and team golf registrations are available. Please visit www.fvigolf.com for more information.
