CGAEF Hosts Golf Classic

The CGA Educational Foundation moved its Southern California Golf Classic to the coast this year while raising money for its college scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs.

The Newport Beach Country Club, home of the Toshiba Classic, a PGA Champions Tour stop, hosted this year’s tournament on July 12, and players were greeted with near perfect Newport Beach weather and a championship course in excellent condition.

“The new location was a huge success for us,” said CGAEF Executive Director Shiloh London, who added the tournament sold out weeks in advance. “We are grateful for the tremendous ongoing support of the grocery industry which allows the Foundation an opportunity to provide college scholarships to deserving students.”

This year’s winning team carded an incredible 19-under par 52. The team included Harvey Brown, Nico Garcia, Jayson Timlin and Joe Doody, of Samuelsen, Gonzalez, Valenzuela & Brown, LLP.

The Foundation wishes to thank the many sponsoring companies that made this year’s Southern California event a tremendous success. Scroll down to view the event in pictures.
