To an incredible group of golfers (and sponsors!),
I speak on behalf of the entire John Tracy Center community when I say that we owe all of you a huge dept of gratitude for making our 2021 Invitational Golf Tournament a success. We had a lofty goal of netting $120,000 for John Tracy Center. Because of you, not only did we meet our goal - but we surpassed it! We are still waiting on some invoices to land to determine our final amount raised, and I will be thrilled to announce the final number once we “close the books”.
These funds are absolutely critical for JTC to be able to provide the level of services to our families in-need that we promise and fight to provide every year, as we have done since 1943. Please know every dollar of your support will be put to work – and not one dollar is taken for granted.
I want to thank JTC board members Gaston Kent, our PVGC member sponsor, for allowing us to host the tournament at Palos Verdes Golf Club, and Elizabeth Larson for doing such a beautiful job as this year’s tournament chairwoman. And to our sponsors who made it possible for us to even hold the tournament:
Our Title Sponsor JDM Contractors, who also built our beautiful new facility (that I invite you all to visit and see our work in action!) ∙ Our Platinum Foursome Sponsors: Allen Matkins, Barker Pacific Group, Causeway Capital Management, Davis Polk & Wardwell, Latham & Watkins, and Lido Advisors ∙ Our Gold Sponsors: Pinnacle Capital Management and Simpson Thacher ∙ Our Silver Sponsors: Armanino and Crimson IT ∙ And our incredible supporting sponsors: American Business Bank, By Naomi Leigh, In-N-Out Burger, Noble Accounting, UCLA Health, and the families of Joe Barnabee, Garrett Bland, and Elizabeth Larson.
There were also many generous companies and individuals who purchased foursomes and individual player spots. These supporters, in addition to our amazing sponsors, are listed in the program book you received in your swag bags. I humbly ask that you please take a look at the program (also attached) and take note of these generous companies and individuals - without whom we would not have been able to put on a great event for you all to enjoy.
And now for the results (below)! In case you missed them. Note that our 2nd and 3rd place foursomes tied, and their placing was decided by a card off. They deserve equal gloating rights 😊
Thank you all so much again for your support- if there is anything we can do to make the tournament an even better experience for you next year, do not hesitate to let me know!!!
