Five Acres Announces 30th Annual Golf Classic & Mad for Plaid Par-Tee
Event will raise critical funds for local children and families
[Altadena, Calif] August 14, 2017 – Five Acres, San Gabriel Valley’s oldest nonprofit, will celebrate its 30th Annual Golf Classic and Mad for Plaid Par-Tee on September 18, 2017 at a private golf club in Pasadena. The event will raise critical funds to support children and families in Los Angeles and will also recognize past chairs for their contribution to Five Acres’ mission.
Following the 18-hole golf tournament, guests are invited to don their finest plaid for Scottish-themed Mad for Plaid Par-Tee. The evening will include cocktails in the “Tartan Tavern” along with dinner, dancing and live entertainment. Sensational auction items include an 8-day Viking Cruises river cruise, helicopter ride and priceless guitar autographed by Maroon 5.
To honor 30-years of community support, a special honorary committee of former chairs will receive special recognition.
“Our past chairs have been champions for Five Acres’ mission to help kids and families thrive, setting examples for others to join the cause,” said Bolton & Company’s Brad Reaume, Title Sponsor and former Five Acres golf chair. “The 30th golf classic anniversary is the ideal opportunity to honor that work and inspire future leaders.”
This year’s sponsorship committee is chaired by Five Acres board member Rustin Mork along with Scott Street, both long-time Five Acres supporters.
“The Five Acres golf tournament has raised more than $3.9 million in support since 1987. We encourage anybody interested in helping vulnerable children to visit the Five Acres campus in Altadena to see what they’ve done,” said Street. “We invite all golfers to join us on September 18 and all people, regardless of their interest in golf, to celebrate with us at dinner.”
