“Playing in the Greater Long Beach Chapter’s annual Golf Tournament helps us help others,” said Paul Conrad, Chairperson of this year’s golf tournament, set for October 11, 2010 at SeaCliff Country Club in Huntington Beach.
“The Greater Long Beach Chapter’s golf tournament is our chapter’s largest annual fundraiser,” he said. “Proceeds from it benefit our local Disaster Relief Fund, which provides victims with meals and shelter.”
Locally the Greater Long Beach Chapter has assisted 14 adults and 7 children get back on their feet since July 1, by providing them with lodging, and a client assistance card (CAC) to purchase clothing, food, toiletries, and bedding lost in the fire. The biggest response to date occurred on July 31, when an apartment building caught on fire destroying one and damaging three other apartments. The residents were provided with lodging and food to help them get back on there feet. All Red Cross disaster assistance is free thanks to generous donations from the American people.
Registration fees are $225 per player and $800 per foursome and include: greens fee, electric cart, goodie bag, continental breakfast, lunch, refreshments on the course, and awards banquet. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are also available. If you’re not a golfer you can still support the Greater Long Beach Chapter by purchasing a raffle ticket for a 32 GB WiFi Apple iPad sponsored by Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Rudd, and Romo Professional Law Corporation . Three iPads will be raffled off. Raffle tickets are $25 or 5 for $100.
