Volunteer Uses His Love of Sports to Touch Our Community for GOOD


by Shelby Durden
Jacksonville University Intern


Mike Hartley has touched nearly every area of our community for good.  Since 1989 Mike has served at THE PLAYERS Championship.  Through his strong leadership, he has led more than 2,000 volunteers to raise funds for community-serving organizations.

He has given his leadership skills to the nonprofit community by serving on numerous boards of directors. He currently serves on the board of The First Tee of North Florida, an organization with the mission to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. An avid golfer and sportsman, Mike also served as a past chairman of the Tournament of Players Championship.

In 2006 he served as chairman of the Gator Bowl.  Other boards he has served on include Boys and Girls Club; Leukemia Society; Dreams Come True; American Red Cross; UNF Athletic Board; JU Athletic Board; FSCJ Foundation Board; RITA Foundation Golf Tournament; Jacksonville Country Day School and St. Johns Country Day School.

His commitment to the community is not only reflected in the way he lives his life, but also in the way he runs his business. The Hartley Press is a full-service printing provider serving customers throughout the southeast. Through The Hartley Press, Mike is generous in his support of the community and has donated printing items and many hours of his time to local nonprofits and charitable causes.

For his extraordinary commitment to the Jacksonville community, Mike Hartley is the recipient of the 2016 HandsOn Community Award.

Join us in celebrating Mike and all of the volunteers who make our community a better place at Celebrate GOOD on April 17 from 2-6pm at Friendship Fountain.  Register for free admission at celebrategood.org.
