ON A SUCCESSFUL EVENT!
The Junior League of San Diego hosted their First Annual Golf Classic on Friday, March 29th at the beautiful and scenic Crossings Golf Club at Carlsbad. The event helped JLSD raise funds for four very important causes which all focus on the youth of San Diego:
- Scholarships for San Diego Foster Youth
- Kids in the Kitchen at Olivewood Gardens Saturday workshops
- School year healthy eating and exercise activities for students at Washington Elementary in Little Italy and Kit Carson Elementary in Linda Vista
- ART – A Reason To Survive – Day-long projects to expand school gardens and paint themed murals
With perfect weather served up on this Good Friday, golfers were greeted by the beautiful JLSD tournament committee who welcomed them at registration with big smiles, great tunes, and plenty of fine beverages hosted by Stone Brewery. The tournament kicked off with an exciting “hole in one” format putting contest, with the winner receiving a new TaylorMade Rocketballz 3 Wood. The players then headed out to the golf course where they participated in lots of on course contests and enjoyed another beverage station hosted by Acoustic Ale. After the round the group gathered for the 19th Hole Reception for cocktails, dinner, and the raffle, and took in the spectacular ocean views offered by the Crossings banquet facilities. On behalf of Kennedy Golf we want to congratulate the JLSD for a fantastic first year of golf tournament fundraising, and give our thanks to all of the players and sponsors that supported the event!
