We had a beautiful day and played on two great courses for the annual CRA Golf Tournament this year. There were 175 golfers participating in the tournament with scores of help from our sponsors and the CRA. We were able to raise over $40K for CRA LA Chapter and ProStart.
We had many participants in the Restaurant Division including; Blue Plate, Lobster, Black Market, Local Peasant, Border Grill, Mud Hen Tavern, Yamashiro, Stir Market, and Dog Haus. Winner of the restaurant division and holder of the perpetual trophy for this year was Border Grill/Mud Hen Tavern. The team was made up of Susan Feniger, Shireen Saugen, Brandon Eldrige and Dane Borgstrom – congratulations to all!!
A big thank you to our hole sponsors: Karl Strauss, Sysco, Us Foods, Paychex, A-Specialist, Risk Assessment, Natures produce, California Chicken café, Ecolab, Hard Rock Café, Gavina Coffee, Barneys Beanery, Lewitt Hackman, Isotech, Paylocity, Fresh point, Coca-Cola, VTZ Law, Angel City Brewing, J Lohr Wines and Heartland.
Thanks to HUB International, our golfers had an opportunity to win a Mercedes Benz and Harley Davidson Motorcycle in one of our two hole-in-one contests. Other sponsors included Sysco and Ecolab who sponsored our closest to the pin contests and Risk Assessment and Heartland who sponsored our longest drives contest.
Thanks to Gavina, Hard Rock and Brookside for getting us started with morning coffee, bloody marys and lunch before tee off.
There was also a silent auction with great prizes donated by KBKG, Sysco and Hard Rock.
The tournament was followed by a terrific food festival with great restaurants including Mud Hen Tavern, Blue Plate Oysterette, Dog Haus, Yamashiro, Stir Market, Urbane Café, El Cholo and California Banquet.
Special thanks to Selwyn and Tony P for ensuring everyone had a good time!!!
