The idea in golf is to typically keep the ball out of the water; however, a charity occasion that was held this past Sunday on the fresh cut greens of The Tequesta Country Club in Tequesta, Florida, will help drive something very exceptionally fulfilling to many back into our local South Florida waters to represent someone that is very special.

More than 140 supporters came to honor “Red”, Andrew “Red” Harris.  A 26 year old, great son and friend to so many, died in June when he was snorkeling and got struck by a boat in the Jupiter Inlet. In Andrew’s memory, a foundation has been set up to create artificial reefs off the northern Palm Beach County coastline.

With a year-end goal of 100 thousand dollars, Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation has already elevated 85 thousand dollars even previously before Sundays Golf charity event. "They're going to be 1,000-feet long by 150-feet wide reef corridors made of retired ships and construction materials," said Scott Harris, Andrew’s father. "I'm just really glad that everybody came and showed their support.  Really great feeling for our family," said Ryan Harris, Andrew's brother.
