Once again our Rays donned their yellow aprons and spent three days in the USCB test kitchen working alongside college students preparing all 1,200 cookies for the tournament!
The Rays developed new friendships, became dish washing extraordinaires and of course baked A LOT of cookies!
In addition to helping the students bake the cookies, the Rays also individually packaged all 1,200 cookies for the event, no small feat! They worked together tirelessly to complete the task and we could not have been more proud but there was still one last surprise to come as the tournament began.
PGA Pro Jim Furyk made a special visit to the test kitchen to learn more about Pockets and bake a special batch of cookies with the Rays!
It was such a treat to meet such a kind man who took instantly to our wonderful adults. He even promised to sport the new sunshine keychain we gave him on his golf bag.
Although Mr. Furyk was not this years champion, he sure won our hearts! The footage of our time with him even made it into a special spot on CBS during the tournament coverage! Watch it here!
And Jim wasn’t the only celebrity spreading sunshine last week. Darius Rucker attended the tournament and made sure to try a Peanut Butter Putter!
Sunshines were spotted all over Harbour Town as the golf came to a close. Even CT Pan, this years tournament winner, was sporting yellow with his plaid!
A wonderful week that our adults will remember forever! We can’t wait til next year!
