We are excited to share the success of our 9th Annual Camarena Classic Golf Tournament where we raised more than $56,000! On April 30th, 144 golfers convened at the Dragonfly Golf Club to raise money supporting community benefit programs Camarena Health provides to patients and community members; programs such as Car Seats for Kids, Reach Out and Read, and the Camarena Health Scholarship Program.
In the morning, before golfers took to the fairway, they were treated with Breakfast Burritos by Taqueria Mexico and drinks from Dutch Bros. Lunch was served not long after; Costco Pizza’s donated by California EB5 Investments. Our golfers finished out their day with a collection of signature food offerings from Colorado Grill.
Golfers also had a number of opportunities to get a leg up on the competition throughout the day. 2016 International Long Drive Champion Patrick Bakerjian of Charity Golf International sat at hole 2 to hit drives for players who made extra donations. Two hole-in-one competitions were sponsored by Roger Dunn Golf Shops and Steves Chevrolet of Chowchilla. Fresno State Women’s Golf coach Emily Loftin hit drives for players on hole 8.
While dinner was being served, we awarded prizes to the day’s best teams, with the team from Relation Insurance Services taking home first place! The evening concluded with a raffle of over 30 generously donated prizes.
We would like to thanks all players, sponsors, and donors for contributing to the successful turnout of our best Camarena Class yet! It is that generosity which will help us pay it forward through programs that serve our patients and community. We would also like to thank our board members, volunteers, and staff for their time and dedication to panning and running the event.
