Some things never change, and sometimes that’s a good thing. An independent charity golf tournament to benefit TPRF is fast becoming a permanent fixture on the South Florida event calendar. This year, the fifth edition of the annual golf tournament occurred at the rolling hills of Hillcrest Country Club, Hollywood, Florida, in February.
Dublin’s newest country rock band “Arizona” had folks on their feet and rocking the night away at a TPRF fundraiser on March 2, 2012. Volunteers for TPRF in Dublin, Ireland, booked the DCC Club in the City Center for their charity gig. The DCC is a very popular venue for music events, with its relaxed atmosphere, reminiscent of those early years of rock and roll clubs.
Thanks go to the DCC Club manager for his generosity in reducing the cost of renting the venue.
