Golfing For A Better Jamaica

The 2nd annual golf tournament for our international charitable partner Josephine Lilly wolf Memorial Scholarship Foundation (JLWMSF) took place this September, and it was our most successful fundraiser yet!

Members of the Legacy Restoration team enjoyed golfing ‘For A Better Jamaica’ as we raised scholarship funding for students seeking higher education. This was the second year for the golf tournament, formerly a corn hole tournament fundraiser, and has proven to be wildly successful in raising funds for the JLWMSF. This year’s fundraiser included 18 holes of golf, lawn games, silent auction and dinner at White Eagle Golf Club in Hudson, WI. The evening concluded with an inspiring speech from JLWMSF’s first graduate, Saveenia Kelly, and the organization’s founder, Shayne Haven (VP of Production at Legacy Restoration).

The foundation was formed in 2016 in honor of Josephine Lilly Wolf who adored learning and had big dreams for her future, which was cut short by gun violence. Hundreds of Jamaican men, women and children become victims to crimes involving firearms every year. Shayne Havens, Legacy’s Vice President of Production, saw an opportunity to honor his daughter and bring hope to Jamaican youth.

The JLWMSF and Legacy Restoration are committed to bringing scholarship opportunities to deserving youth seeking a higher education in Jamaica — we are ‘For A Better Jamaica.’ Funds raised from the golf tournament will become scholarships that benefit individuals just like Saveenia.

The Josephine Lilly Wolf Memorial Scholarship Foundation provides deserving students in Jamaica with an opportunity to further their education by providing scholarships and academic resources. This year’s recipients were Anthony Beckford, Macy-Ann Taylor, and Keeno-Lee James. Read more about these recipients and their accolades here.
