Great Day for Golf in Northern California

The PLUS Northern California Chapter held its annual golf tournament benefiting the PLUS Foundation on Friday, August 18. Forty-three industry professionals came out for a day of fun int he sun, and more than $2,600 was raised for the PLUS Foundation.

Chapter chair Geoffrey Anello shared this about the event:

Early morning clouds lead to sunshine, nature, and fun at the Annual PLUS Charity Golf Tournament that was held at the Metropolitan Golf Links on Friday, August 18th.

While golf balls were flying every which way (mostly towards the greens, but not always), we had some furry tailed friends join us and enjoy the warm weather near one of the front nine tees.  These foxes seemed perfectly at home with the golfers all around, and indeed the players and supporters of this event eventually convened afterwards for a BBQ lunch, raffle, and prize announcements for the winning foursomes, the longest drives and closest to the pin contests.  Although not everyone left with a prize, everyone left smiling after a great day of golfing and charity, and talk about next year’s tournament were already passing the lips of those who attended…

We look forward to another successful charity event next year at the Metropolitan Golf Links! Thanks to all that made this day a resounding success, raising more than $2,600 for the PLUS Foundation. Our Chapter Charity grant is supporting the SF Marin Food Bank.

Rain Can’t Deter Eastern Chapter from Golfing

On Monday, August 7 the PLUS Eastern Chapter hosted its 2017 Golf Tournament benefiting the PLUS Foundation. The event drew 145 golfers to Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle, and more than $25,000 was raised for the PLUS Foundation.

“Despite a steady rain most of the day, it didn’t dampen the spirits of the golfers at the Eastern Chapter Golf Tournament at the Wykagyl Country Club.  With rain gear on and umbrellas at the ready, the golfers had a great day between the rain drops. The 120 year old Top 100 Classic golf course, which has hosted both PGA and LPGA events, did not disappoint.  All the attendees had a fun day on the course and a fantastic reception and awards ceremony after golf.”
