A sold out field of 144 grocery retailers, suppliers and wholesalers participated in this year’s CGA Educational Foundation Northern California Golf Classic and Illuminators Rally on Tuesday, July 24.
The golfers were greeted by perfect weather conditions in the low 80’s and a beautifully manicured course at the exclusive Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, CA.
During the afternoon awards reception, CGAEF Board of Trustees Chair Jim Van Gorkom, NuCal Foods, shared the Foundation’s programs with attendees, including information on scholarships and the upcoming Hall of Achievement dinner scheduled for October 18 at San Ramon Marriott.
The Foundation wishes to thank the sponsors listed below for their generous support of this year’s tournament. Proceeds from the event go to support the Foundation’s College Scholarship and Tuition Reimbursement programs.

Prior to the tournament, supplier and vendor attendees heard from Draeger’s Supermarkets executive Richard Draeger. Mr. Draeger shared highlights of the family’s century-long success in the grocery industry and strategies for the coming years.
The Foundation also wishes to thank The Illuminators for hosting the morning breakfast and Safeway Inc., and Bimbo Bakeries USA for providing lunch on the course.
