Isla Cozumel, the largest island in the Mexican Caribbean, recently hosted the second annual Red Cross Benefit Golf Tournament at Cozumel Country Club. Over 71 golfers attended the charitable tournament. The event was able to raise $11,000 for the Cozumel Chapter of the Mexican Red Cross and the Cozumel Humane Society.
Golfers hailing from Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Merida, and even Mexico City and the United States, teamed up in groups of four to compete for prizes at every hole. Prizes were donated by local Cozumel businesses. The grand prizes for each hole-in-one included a Ford automobile and a Yamaha golf cart. The top three teams received trophies for their charitable efforts.
