FORT MYERS, Fla.– The Red Sox are giving back to Lee County.

Today, a check for $40,000 was presented to the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools.

The money was raised at the Red Sox Foundation's Second Annual Swings for the Sox Golf Tournament.

Last year's event raised money for two local non-profits: the Heights Foundation and the Children's Home Society.
