High School Golfers Receive Random Act of Kindness

VIERA, FL - Thanks to Moon Golf and Brevard Random Acts of Kindness, high school golfers throughout Brevard County now have a level playing field. After months of communication and planning, 266 custom golf bags were presented to BPS’ high school golf teams last Tuesday.

Anne Moon, owner of Moon Golf, was inspired to give back to local junior golfers after the success she has seen in her and her husband Dan’s business in the last couple of years. According to Moon, the golf industry has been booming and Moon Golf has seen “tremendous growth.”

Moon was a golfer in both high school and college and remembered the sense of pride she felt when wearing her team uniform and using team gear. Now, because of her generosity, over 200 students will be able to represent their school with pride.

In the spring of this year, Moon reached out to Brevard Random Acts of Kindness (BRAK) to help her execute the plan. Local businesswoman, Lori Claro, is a volunteer with BRAK and acted as a liaison between the schools and the Moon Golf staff.

Before the end of the 2021-22 school year, Claro reached out to Athletic Directors and coaches of each of the 16 high schools in Brevard, notifying them that someone wanted to do a random act of kindness for their golf team. Claro helped collect logos and team colors and relayed them back to the Moons.

Over the summer, the bags were ordered and at last week’s event, representatives from each school gathered at the Melbourne location of Moon Golf to accept their new Sun Mountain bags.

Cheryl Shivel, Athletic Director at Astronaut High, expressed her gratitude to the Moons for their thoughtfulness, saying, “Each school has to fundraise for its individual teams. For schools that have difficulty fundraising, [the donation] means we can provide beautiful, personalized equipment for our students.”
