COA’s 20th annual Island Doctors Champions for Elders Golf Tournament to benefit COA will take place on Monday, August 14, 2023 at The Palencia Club in St. Augustine, Florida. Sponsors bring a team of four to enjoy a day of golf followed by a celebratory luncheon, or participate as a sponsor off the course and support the important work COA does every day for local seniors and caregivers.

As a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, COA relies upon the financial support of members of the community to support our important work.

“The St. Johns County community is committed to being there for our elders and caregivers,” explained COA Executive Director, Becky Yanni.  “We rely upon the generosity and good will of local businesses and members of the community to make this possible. Our annual Champions for Elders golf tournament is crucial to our ability to serve.” 

For the second year in a row, local medical group Island Doctors is the Title Sponsor of the event.

“We are very excited to be able to help Council on Aging serve more seniors and caregivers in St. Johns County,” said Roy H. Hinman, II, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Island Doctors MSO. “This event is a fantastic way to help our community’s elders.”
