We are proud to announce the inaugural Leadership Tampa Bay/Elk Institute for Psychological Health and Performance golf tournament will be held November 17, 2017 at Bay Palms Golf Course, MacDill Air Force Base.

Leadership Tampa Bay has been an integral part of the Tampa Bay community for many years. With each class, Leadership Tampa Bay strives to produce graduates poised to develop positive solutions that benefit the community. With this goal in mind, the LTB alumni have decided to partner with the Elk Institute to benefit Tampa Bay’s military community.

The Elk Institute specializes in treating psychological trauma in the military population but is also equipped to address general psychological health issues. The Institute is a Tampa based organization established to provide education, consultation, and treatment to the military and veteran community, at no cost to the service member.

Additionally, in an effort to assist service members transitioning from military service to the civilian workforce, corporations may purchase a foursome for members to network with local business leaders. Local companies interested in targeting service members of certain skillsets are asked to make their preferences known when registering.

Sponsorship packages range from $5000 to $500 and include incentives such as multiple foursomes, corporate logos on all promotional material and hole sponsorships. For tax purposes the Elk Institute is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization with an approved Employer Identification Number of 46-4359660.
