ORLANDO, Fla.: Alongside multiple corporate partners, Orlando-based Market Traders Institute, Inc. raised $43,390 at its third annual Teeing for Ta-Tas golf tournament at Rosen Shingle Creek on Sept. 22, 2018. With more than 120 golfers participating, the fundraising total was a three-year high and all proceeds will be donated to the Florida Hospital for Women, helping them in their fight to prevent breast cancer.
“We pride ourselves in putting our community first — whether that is our students or the communities we represent every day, wherever we live,” MTI CEO Jacob Martinez said. “The fight against breast cancer is one that has directly affected my family, and we want to help the cause in any way that we can. To see our corporate partners and the communities come out to the tournament warmed my heart — and we’re just getting started. Every year, our benchmark for fundraising grows, and to see us exceed those goals shows me that our community is strong and motivated to continue the fight.”
How MTI was able to aid Florida Hospital’s breast cancer research
