Actress Catherine Bell, best known for her for her role of Lt. Colonel Sarah MacKenzie of the 1995 to 2005 television show JAG, commenced the shotgun start at the Semi –Annual “Hackers Classic” Tournament at the Eastlake Woodlands Country Club. The tournament this year was generously sponsored by PostcardMania, Thermal Technologies Services, Inc. and Island View Estates.

Funds raised from this golf tournament benefits the construction of a new upper school campus for Clearwater Academy International (CAI), a private school located on Drew and Myrtle. The plan is to build the new campus on the 3-acre piece of land owned by Clearwater Academy at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Wyatt Street in Largo. “Although the exact date has not been set as yet, construction will begin soon”, stated Clearwater Academy’s Executive Director, Jim Zwers.

Results from the tournament:

Low Gross Champions-Jeff Putney, Dr. Jimmy Gatza, Gary Cardone and Eric Davis
1st place-Pat Clouden and John Beachy
2nd place-TJ Leesley, Manu Beauregard, Louis Peens and Jerod Snelson
3rd place-Mike Kaplan, Jim Mathers, Mark Hoover and Matt Helland

Parents, business owners and many other contributors to this event see the value of the CAI’s purpose: “To educate each child to his fullest potential and beyond, graduating with eagerness to take his place in the world and contributing to society in his field(s) of endeavor.”  Particularly, Catherine Bell played in the tournament as her daughter attends Clearwater Academy and when out of town her daughter continues to be home-schooled on its curriculum.
