Event to be held on September 20 at Annandale Golf Club
ALTADENA, Calif., July 29, 2021— Five Acres announces its Don’t Stop Believin’ 33rd Annual Golf Classic led by Co-chairs Danny Reaume and Joey Reaume. The ‘80s themed golf tournament and dining event, will take place at the Annandale Golf Club in Pasadena on September 20.
Brothers Danny Reaume, senior vice president at Jones Lang LaSalle, and Joey Reaume, first vice president at Colliers International, have been officially part of the Five Acres Golf committee for more than five years and third year as co-chairs but have been a part of Five Acres and the golf tournament for many years prior. This event is a family affair for the Reaumes, who were introduced by their father, Brad Reaume, executive vice president of Bolton & Company, the title sponsor of the golf classic, as well as former Tournament Chair and current committee member.
An ode to iconic rock band, Journey, the golf committee purposefully chose their signature song, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Its lyrics are words of encouragement that Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain’s father told him while struggling to make it in Hollywood. The title and refrain of the song are also encouraging words for what many children, families and individuals have experienced during the pandemic.
“We are thrilled to celebrate with our Five Acres family and friends at this much-anticipated event with Danny and Joey leading the tee off,” said Five Acres Chief Advancement Officer Jennifer Berger, who acknowledges that the theme has been a mantra for the team. “We’re also thankful for our sponsors and underwriters who have continued to support us after what has been extraordinary times. They have been a testament to our Don’t Stop Believin’ mantra.”
Since its origins, the Five Acres Golf Classic has raised more than $4 million in critical funds supporting foster care, adoption and mental health services for kids and families in crisis in Los Angeles.
Both the tournament and the evening event will be held outside. Guests can be assured that Five Acres and Annandale Golf Club will follow all public health guidelines associated with operating a golf tournament and dining event. The event’s program includes a round of golf for day participants followed in the evening with an awards ceremony, live ‘80s band, tasty libations, a gourmet feast, and auction. Guests are encouraged to come in their best ‘80s attire as the golf committee turns back the clock at this event.
