$290,000 Raised During Hill Country Classic Golf Tournament

For the third consecutive year, AmeriLife was the Presenting Sponsor of the Hill Country Classic charity golf tournament which raised, this year alone, nearly $300,000 for two youth-centric charities, substantially eclipsing the amount raised in 2014.

The proceeds from the popular Hill Country Classic were divided between the Kidz1stFund, a Fanconi anemia research and awareness group established by Florida State University football coach Jimbo Fisher and his wife, Candi; and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the marine animal rescue, rehabilitation and release operation that’s home to Winter the dolphin.

Hosted by and Billy and Karon Hill and AmeriLife’s CEO Tim North, the Hill Country Classic is supported primarily by insurance industry-related organizations. AmeriLife, the Clearwater-based annuity, life and health insurance marketing group, was again the tournament’s Presenting Sponsor. Played on the championship course at East Lake Woodlands Country Club, the Hill Country Classic lodged its 225 guests at the world-famous Safety Harbor Resort and Spa.

“We had a record-setting year, raising $290,000 for our charities,” said tournament director Billy Hill, who brought to Florida from Texas the tournament in 2014. Mr. Hill, with decades of experience in law and insurance, is Director of AmeriLife’s Product Development team. “The generosity of our benefactors is just incredible,” he said. “To raise more than the quarter-million dollars contributed last year is astounding.”

The 2015 Hill Country Classic began with a Leadership Forum featuring insurance commissioners from several states and speakers unaffiliated with the insurance industry discussing leadership challenges and successes. The luncheon at the Safety Harbor Spa concluded with entertaining remarks by FSU Coach Jimbo Fisher. Later in the day, attendees gathered for cocktails, dinner and a silent auction.

After a day of golf at East Lake Woodlands, many benefactors gathered at the spa’s outdoor deck for a Major Donor Dinner.

“Good people and corporate citizens from across the country gave generously to the Classic this year, helping us make a difference in the lives of so many children,” said Tim North, AmeriLife’s CEO. AmeriLife was a charter sponsor in establishing the Kidz1stFund in 2011, and has been a benefactor of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium for years.
