CBG Hosts Annual CARES Charity Golf Tournament to Benefit Local Nonprofits

This event marks over four million dollars raised for deserving causes since the inaugural 2005 tournament. Eighty sponsors including subcontractors, industry partners, and consultants partnered with tournament hosts to put on a successful day for more than 250 golfers.

One of the tournament's primary beneficiaries, YAC, takes a community approach to address youth homelessness in the area.

"From all of us at YAC we cannot thank you enough for your kindness and generosity. Your donation has helped give us the courage to take the next step and move forward with an office and meeting room for our youth," said Heather Fitzgerald, executive director and founder of YAC. "While we will still be on the streets each day looking for and helping our youth, this office will give us a home base. Again, thank you is not enough."

Gigi's Playhouse, an educational, therapeutic, and career-building center for individuals with Down Syndrome was also a primary recipient of the tournament.

"GiGi's Playhouse San Diego is incredibly grateful for your generous donation and support. It will have a significant and lasting impact as we continue to expand opportunities for individuals with Down Syndrome in San Diego County," said Karen Falk, president of Gigi's Playhouse San Diego. "With your support, we will be able to expand the programs and services we offer at our Down Syndrome Achievement Center."

Finally, CBG and its event partners supported The Honor Foundation, a transition institute for Navy SEALS and the U.S. Special Operations Community. The organization empowers men and women to tap into their maximum potential during and after their service careers. Hosts were honored to have a few active Navy SEALS in attendance of the 2018 tournament as players honored and celebrated Veterans Day.

"Our Employer Partners play a significant role in pushing our Mission forward -- believing what we believe to their core," said Joe Musselman, CEO and founder of The Honor Foundation. "Thank you to CRC CARES and Clark Construction for recognizing the leadership and talent our Fellows and Alumni can bring to the workforce."

As with the tournament's tradition, net proceeds from the event will continue to benefit other charitable groups throughout the year. The 14-year tournament has supported more than 120 charities made possible by generous industry partners.
