28th Annual Bright House Networks Cosmic Golf Challenge
More than 200 golfers scrambled for science by participating in the 28th Annual Cosmic Golf Challenge at ChampionsGate Golf Resort on April 7. Sponsored by Bright House Networks and Cisco Systems, the event raised funds for educational programs at the Orlando Science Center.
Various corporate teams and individual players came together to putt for progress during 18 holes of best ball tournament play on two separate courses. Hole sponsors, buying “mulligans” and raffle prizes also generated revenue. Don Reid Ford and Mullinax Ford donated cars for hole-in-one prizes on each course. Players enjoyed lunch, dinner, an awards ceremony, drawings, contests and prizes.
University of Central Florida’s Head Football Coach George O’Leary addressed the golfers at the awards dinner that following the tournament. As UCF’s head football coach for the past seven years, O’Leary has seen the Knights through several historical “firsts” and an abundance of victories. He spoke about the importance of education and its relationship to sports.
For almost three decades, Bright House Networks has helped raise vital funds for the Orlando Science Center. Participation in this event supports education programs that encourage children to explore the world around them through science.
Unique hands-on learning takes place within and outside the Science Center’s walls for youth of all ages. Live programming and exhibit experiences spark a child’s curiosity and encourage them to see the impact science, technology, engineering and math have on their life and future career opportunities.
