Marlee Huggins, Founder of the Cardiac Kids Foundation of Florida, thanked “the entire Devoted Creations team for planning such a great event.”

Retired MLB player and former Florida Marlins outfielder and third baseman Gary Sheffield also attended this year’s event. A native of Tampa, FL, he and his wife Deleon currently reside there.

Huggins went on to say that Sheffield’s “continued support of the Cardiac Kids Foundation of Florida is something they are forever grateful and appreciative for.”

Attendees of this year’s charity golf tournament participated in dinner, awards ceremony, and a live auction. All proceeds from the auction went to the Cardiac Kids Foundation of Florida. The total amount raised from the auction at this year’s event was $18,000.

As a company, Devoted Creations believes that it is important to give back to their community and regularly donates to several local charities.
