Eagle Creek members are a group of very generous people. Members give money, goods, time and efforts to support many local charitable causes. Several efforts of Philanthropy occur throughout each year at Eagle Creek such as golf and tennis tournaments, fundraisers and silent auctions.
Eagle Creek is also proud of its participation in the building of homes for Habitat for Humanity, donating time and efforts to the Conservancy of Naples, holiday gift giving through toy donations for the East Naples Fire Department and the list continues. Below you will find a list of the several opportunities current members are involved in. If you would like to add your local charity, send an e-mail and information to Laura Hill at email@example.com in the Membership & Marketing Office.
Christmas Toy Drive – The Holiday Social each year is held to collect unwrapped children’s toys for distribution to several local charities such as The Christian Athletes, Project HELP, Inc., and The East Naples Fire Department.
Bikes for Tykes – The Annual Bikes for Tykes Tennis Charity Mixer is a very special event at Eagle Creek. Participants and non-participants donate funds towards the purchase of children’s bicycles that will be distributed to underprivileged children at East Naples Elementary schools. Some members prefer to donate bikes rather than cash and they can be brought right to the Tennis Shop.
Bosom Buddies – The Eagle Creek Ladies’ Nine Holers have an annual fund raiser to help support Bosom Buddies in Collier County. They have raised more than $65,000 for this support group who helps under-insured women locally.
Rally for a Cure – The Eagle Creek Ladies’ 18-Holers hold an annual fund raising tournament to help those who are battling cancer.
Habitat for Humanity – Each year several members of Eagle Creek spend their off days working with Habitat for Humanity. In the past year the Club has been able to donate enough time and money to build 2 homes.
Eagle Creek Dewsweepers- Eagle Creek Golf & Country Club Dewsweepers have donated over $4,600.00 to Manatee Middle School this past school year! The money donated goes towards the purchase of binders, socks, sweatshirts and school supplies for the upcoming school year. Since 2008, the Dewsweepers have donated over $24,000 to Manatee Middle School.
