Our Supporters


Please join us for the Florida Executive Realty Divots for the Deaf 2015 Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Hillsborough and Pinellas County's Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community on May 18, 2015 - 1pm Shotgun. Registration starts at 11:30am.

Our Promoters, The BeachTree Group, Rocket Agency and Paradise Golf would like to extend their deepest appreciation for supporting this great event and helping the many that are deaf and hard of hearing.

We are excited to announce that Mr. Dick Crippen will be our Emcee and one of our many local personalities that will be joining us on the golf course!

100% of the proceeds will be going to local Deaf non-profit 501c3 agencies:
Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf (Children), CAI (Closed caption and ASL), and ALDA Suncoasters (
Association for Late-Deafened Adults).

Did you know
The Tampa Bay area is the third largest in the USA with over 400,000 Deaf and Hard of Hearing individuals? My wife, Cindy, had profound hearing loss in her 30's and became totally deaf. She decided to have Cochlear Implant surgery and it has helped her. The struggle to be in a hearing world is challenging. We take many things for granted when it comes to hearing, but the reality is that movie theaters, museums, amusement parks, grocery stores, public agencies, and other businesses rarely have accommodations such as closed captioning for the hearing impaired. As our population grows older and suffers from hearing loss (like my wife and those that have been living with this disability for their entire life or recently) we need to make changes.

How Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf is Different?

Blossom is very different than most schools for the deaf. First, we are only one of a handful of schools in the United States for the deaf that uses Montessori teaching methods. This type of education is particularly well-suited to deaf children, because lessons are visual, tactile, physical, and engaging.

Also, we accept their hearing siblings, so they can learn and grow together. This also provides an opportunity for the hearing sibling to learn American Sign Language so they can communicate better with their deaf or hard of hearing brother or sister. 
Also, Blossom teaches children of deaf adults (otherwise known as CODAs.) Once again, hearing children learn how to communicate, this time with their parents and it allows for their parents to communicate openly with their child’s teacher and to be a part of their child's learning without the use of an interpreter.

Help us support these wonderful deaf organizations and our vision to make a difference in the Deaf world. I encourage you to go to each of their websites to see what wonderful things they are doing.
