Cool Weather Greets Foundation Golfers

Unusually cool weather made for perfect golf conditions at the 2015 CGA Educational Foundation Southern California Golf Classic at Pacific Palms Resort in Industry, Calif., on July 8.

This year’s event was nearly 20 degrees cooler than in 2014 – a statistic that did not go unnoticed by the full field of grocery retailers and suppliers playing in this year’s tournament.

“The weather couldn’t have been better,” said CGAEF President Ron Fong. “Perfect weather for a perfect event to help raise funds for the Foundation’s college scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs. Thank you to all those who played and to the many event sponsors.”

In addition to a great day of golf, attendees heard from Dan Benart, a grocery supervisor for Stater Bros. Markets, who shared how the Foundation’s programs helped his children reach their education dreams and how he now is utilizing the Foundation to further his professional career.

Dan was introduced by newly elected Foundation Board of Trustee Tom Seaton, Stater Bros. Markets.

The Foundation’s Northern California tournament is July 21, 2015 at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, Calif.

Congratulations to this year’s winners!
