Each year, Council on Aging invites the community to participate in our Island Doctors COA Champions for Elders Golf Tournament, our largest fundraiser of the year. Sponsors are invited to 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. This year’s event took place at Slammer and Squire, World Golf Village, on Monday, August 29,2022. 

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.” 

This year, local medical group Island Doctors was 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.”

COA provides an extensive array of services for area seniors including Meals on Wheels, independent living services, case management, memory enhancement programs, therapeutic adult daycare, transportation, prescription assistance, and more. We also offer opportunities for socialization, travel, and lifelong learning at their six community centers located throughout the county. In addition, COA offers programs to support the needs of local caregivers, providing counseling, education, support groups, and respite care.

We are proud to announce our 2022 Champions for Elders!
