CBG Hosts 15th Annual CARES Charity Golf Tournament
Some 70 construction sponsors, including subcontractors, industry partners, and consultants, partnered with tournament hosts to put on a successful two-day tournament for 256 golfers. Participants enjoyed dinner and a formal awards reception following each day of golf.
Sisu Academy, Us4Warriors Foundation, and Cancer Angels of San Diego were the chief beneficiaries of the tournament this year. Sisu Academy is the first all-girls tuition-free boarding high school with an embedded incubator fueled by entrepreneurs and seed capital to create an immersive learning environment that funds all operational costs.
"Sisu Academy is so blessed to be connected to the CRC CARES family and receive crucial program support," said Jabez LeBret, Sisu Academy co-founder and chief of schools. "We are touched by the generosity of everyone in attendance to support a program like ours that provides housing, food, counseling support, and education for young women in our county who have run out of options. CBG, CRC, and Clark Construction are truly companies who care deeply for the community and it shows."
Us4 Warriors Foundation is a 100 percent volunteer nonprofit dedicated to helping veterans, active-duty military, and their families to overcome hardships while contributing their unique experiences, training, and leadership skills to society.
Tony Stewart, CEO and co-founder of Us4Warriors, remarked: "We are so grateful for the generosity of the Clark family of companies and the amazing community of builders and service providers who joined together to make the event such a success. They graciously bestowed upon us funding that will help thousands of military veterans and their families live stronger lives."
Cancer Angels of San Diego is also a 100 percent volunteer organization, established to address the financial needs of Stage IV cancer patients facing severe financial hardship.
"It was a banner year for CRC CARES, not only hosting our 15th golf tournament in San Diego, but also raising our highest dollar value to date," said CRC CARES Foundation Coordinator Veronica Natividad. "We look forward to providing additional grants throughout the coming year."
