Aventura, FL – The Miami Dolphins held the annual Nat Moore Endowment Fund Golf Classic at JW
Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa’s Soffer’s Course on Monday, March 18, 2019. Funds raised from
the golf tournament benefited the Nat Moore Endowment Fund, which serves as the education pillar of
the Miami Dolphins Foundation and provides graduating high school seniors in Miami Dade, Monroe,
Broward and Palm Beach counties with the financial resources needed to pursue avenues of education and
training for employment readiness.
“In our second year of the Nat Moore Endowment Fund as part of the Miami Dolphins Foundation, we are
constantly looking for ways to help more kids go to school, educate themselves and give them a chance
to be successful in whatever it is they choose to do,” Miami Dolphins Senior Vice President of Alumni
Relations Nat Moore said. “This is something that has been near to my heart for as long as I can
remember so I am very excited to see everyone come together for this event and raise funds that will
give the youth of our community a greater opportunity to pursue their dreams.”
Celebrity guests teed off for a round of scramble-golf on the world-famous Soffer Course, home to a
number of LPGA and PGA events including participation from former NFL and NBA athletes Dick Anderson,
Donny Anderson, Otis Anderson, Hank Bauer, Bobby Bell, Otis Birdsong, Ronnie Brown, Bob Brudzinski,

This event is a follow up to the Nat Moore Scholarship and Vocational Grant Endowment open application
announcement made earlier this year and is in its second year under the Miami Dolphins Foundation.
Last year, five graduating seniors were the first recipients awarded the fund and were selected
through an application process that showcased community service, leadership, financial need and
academic standing. This initiative aligns with the Miami Dolphins mission of “Teamwork at Work” —
an effort to level the playing field through the power of teamwork to inspire a healthier, more
educated and united South Florida community.
The fund is a continuation of the Nat Moore Foundation, which started in 1998 to serve the youth of
South Florida through education. The Miami Dolphins Foundation through the Nat Moore Endowment Fund is
committed to raising $10 million in 10 years to fund educational opportunities for South Florida
youth. This commitment will foster the next generation of industry and community leaders by providing
students who are achieving academically and who give back to their communities with the opportunity to
attain their educational goals. Application for the Nat Moore Vocational Grant are accepted on a
rolling basis. For more information and to apply, please CLICK HERE.
