2018 CGAEF So. California Golf Classic

Grocery retailers and their supplier partners from throughout the Southland and beyond gathered at the beautiful Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point, Calif., for a day of networking and golf as part of the 2018 CGA Educational Foundation Southern California Golf Classic on Wednesday, July 18.

Near perfect weather greeted the field of more than 120 golfers playing in this year’s tournament. Proceeds from this and the Foundation’s Northern California Golf Classic (July 31) help fund CGAEF’s college scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs.

“Our tournaments are fantastic opportunities to help fund our two main giving programs, network with industry peers and play golf at one of Southern California’s most beautiful courses,” said CGA President & CEO Ron Fong, who also serves as CGA Educational Foundation President. “The Foundation is extremely appreciative of the many companies that sponsored today’s tournament. Your support helps deserving college students of all ages fulfill their educational goals.”

In addition to near-perfect weather, the field of more than 100 golfers was well-fed throughout the day starting with a hearty breakfast provided by The Illuminators. Congratulations to this year’s winning foursomes. Scroll below for a list of winners, sponsors, and photos from this year’s event.
