CGA Education Foundation Hosts Successful Northern California Golf Classic

More than 140 grocery retailers, suppliers and wholesalers gathered together to participate in this year’s CGA Educational Foundation Northern California Golf Classic and Illuminators Rally on Tuesday, July 23 at the beautifully manicured course at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, Calif.

Attendees enjoyed hearing from former American college player and 13-year professional football veteran Willie Roaf about his experiences. This forum was sponsored by C&S Wholesale Grocers and MillerCoors.

In addition, Long Drive Professional Damien Payne showed off his long ball skills on the course to help raise money for the Foundation.
