SWAG Golf Group Participates in Golf Tournament to Benefit The Spring

Kudos to Caroline Black Sikorske and the members of her SWAG golf group, who were sponsors of a recent golf tournament at MacDill Airforce Base. All proceeds were donated to The Spring, a local nonprofit that provides safe spaces and empowering services to survivors of domestic violence and their children. October was Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so the SWAG (Sophisticated Wild A** Golfers) group wore purple in recognition of the cause. There was beautiful weather for the tournament and it had a great turnout.
