The Players Giving Back Month continues at Angelwood

Red Coat Ride visit includes presentation of 15-passenger van


The Players volunteer leadership, the Red Coats, accompanied by Tour player Jeff Klauk, continued The Players Giving back Month with a special visit to Angelwood, an organization that assists families in caring for the special needs of their loved ones across their lifespan.

Angelwood received a $10,000 grant from the Red Coats this year. At the visit, Klauk and the Rec Coats took a tour of the facility, met with participants in the program and presented a surprise: a much needed 15-passenger van.

“I cannot thank The Players Championship and the Red Coats enough for this amazing donation,” said Diane Tuttle, executive director of Angelwood.” This van will enable our staff to transport the program participants to and from our facility safely.”

Angelwood cares for families through a variety of programs suited to each person’s individual goals. They help children and adults with developmental differences such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, intellectual differences, Prader-Willi syndrome and spina bifida.

“Giving back to the local Northeast Florida charities is what makes our years of volunteering at the tournament so meaningful,” said Theresa Greene-Hazel, captain of The Players Championship Past Chairmen. “This donation allows Angelwood the opportunity to operate efficiently with one less worry.”

Upcoming Giving Back Month events include a visit to K9s for Warriors on Nov. 16. The money generated by The Players each year benefits more than 300 charities throughout Northeast Florida, totaling approximately $67.5 million in charitable giving since the event moved to Ponte Vedra Beach in 1977.
