Registration is now open for foursomes to play in the tournament. Each foursome will be paired with a Pirates celebrity. Opportunities to win great prizes will occur throughout the round. Lunch prior to teeing off and a post-event awards dinner will be provided at the event. Each foursome will receive a commemorative gift and a photograph of their foursome.

Six schools benefited from this program in 2016. * Support of the Bradenton RBI program by donating uniforms, equipment and even transportation to the RBI Regional Tournament.
