This year’s banquet was the primary fundraising event for the FCA, a trans-denominational Christian ministry directly involved with youth in area schools, and subsequently raised over $100,000 for FCA Southwest Florida.

Since 1954, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. The Southwest Florida Chapter of FCA serves Collier, Lee, Hendry, and Glades Counties.

Mize is a pro golfer who played on the PGA Tour and currently plays on the Champions Tour. He is well known for one career-defining shot — a chip from off the green at the 11th hole at Augusta to win the playoff for the 1987 Masters Tournament, which was his only major title. Mize also won four international events and played for the U.S. teams in the Ryder Cup in 1987 and the Dunhill Cup in 2000. For many years Mize and Coca-Cola sponsored a successful charity golf tournament to benefit cystic fibrosis held at the Atlanta Athletic Club. Columbus, GA, is an excellent place to be a devout Christian, which is convenient for Mize, since he is a devout Christian and lives in the Bible Belt of Columbus, an Old Southern city located clear across the Peach State from Augusta.
