"With the assistance provided by Clark CARES, we will be able to provide a safe and protective environment for homeless and at-risk youth," said Terilyn Burg, executive director of StandUp for Kids San Diego. "This generous donation helps us foster the support network of basic human needs and development through educational programs, one-on-one counseling, and an ongoing atmosphere of hope and concern."

Clark CARES also presented tournament proceeds to Birdies for the Brave and the Good Guys of Morgan Run, whose programs honor and support members of the military who were lost or seriously wounded in the line of duty. In addition, contributions extended to area education programs including the Pacific Beacon Education Fund, the UC San Diego Foundation, and the Construction Engineering Program at San Diego State University.

"Clark is truly grateful for the continued generosity of our industry partners," said Jim Forburger, senior vice president of Clark Builders Group. "We feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those in our immediate community."

The event sponsors held a dinner and awards reception both evenings of the tournament at the Maderas Golf Club's Del Lago Ballroom. Highlights of the reception included the announcement of tournament winners and formal presentation of the proceeds to recipient organizations.
