Our Golf Classic was fun and a great success. The success of the day was a result of all the golfers who showed up to play and support our cause; the volunteers who helped to put it all together both before , during and after the event; the sponsors who supported us with financial gifts and items for our auctions and Moorpark Country Club for such a beautiful venue.

We are grateful for Andre Dawson and Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills for sponsoring the Hole-in-One Contest each year!

We are grateful for our golfers, including Susan has flown out every year from New Jersey to golf our tournament.  As if that is not enough, this year she took it a step further by purchasing a T-sign as well!  Scot Steenberg could easily stop at the Scot Sponsor level of 16 golfers, but instead he committed to that and a Birdie Sponsor of 8 additional golfers!  Additionally, Steve who donates the cost for the BBQ lunch as he has in the past, this year he has pledged $10,000 at $1,000 per year for the next 10 years to go towards our scholarships.

We are grateful for our Par Sponsors, Castillo Foundation, Cheong,Denove, Rowell, Bennett & Hapuarachy and Sauthier & Steele.

This year was the inaugural presentation of the “John & Elisa Jackson Humanitarian Award”, which was awarded to the Steele Family.

This year was also the Inaugural presentation of the Michael A Sautheir CLU Mentoring Scholarship. It was awarded to Gina LaBeaud.

We heard stories and updates on their lives from three of our scholarship recipients.

We are grateful for all out raffle item, silent auction donors and the support of Lauren of Creative Charity Auctions.
We love the memories we create at this event and especially are thankful for Elsa O’Hare for the up-close photographs and for our Videographer Marvin McLaughlin.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2017 Golf Classic.

It was a beautiful day at the Moorpark Country Club. Several prizes were awarded, and fun was had by all. No one won the Mercedes Benz for a Hole-in-one – but there is always next year.
