6th Annual Maximum Impact Golf Tournament a Success!

Tags: Events Golf

First Place for Youth and Kaiser Permanente thank all who came out to support a great cause!

Our 6th Annual Maximum Impact Golf Tournament took place on Monday, October 5, 2015. We had a great day of golf at the beautiful Mira Vista Country Club in El Cerrito, CA, and raised over $67,000 to benefit foster kids!

Thank you to all of the golfers that came out, all of our volunteers, and all of our sponsors for a great event. We especially thank members of Kaiser Permanente’s IT teams throughout California for coming out to support by golfing and volunteering.

Special thanks to our morning and evening Masters of Ceremonies—Gerald Landholt of Kaiser Permanente and 95.7 The Game‘s Anna Kagarakis.

We were very grateful to our featured youth speaker, DeAngelo Cortijo, who shared his amazing story. He also was accompanied by Calfornia Assemblymember, Tony Thurmond, who presented First Place for Youth with a certificate of recognition.
