|Don’t Stop Believin’ Recap:
Todd Kochanowski, SDGCSA Past President
This year’s prostate cancer awareness fundraiser, “Don’t Stop Believing” marked 3 years of successful fundraising hosted by the SDGCSA. This year we shifted gears and brought the event to one of San Diego’s finest, Del Mar Country Club. Host Superintendent Chris Erickson and his team did not disappoint serving up superior golf course conditioning from tee to green. Thanks again to all of the DMCC staff for hosting such an amazing event. Following golf, the group was treated with a fantastic dinner buffet and music. San Diego’s own “Liquid Blue” got the group on their feet dancing to just about every genre of music and proved to be a real crowd pleaser. We even had some participation on stage from our fearless leader, Nick Angelucci belting out The Sugarhill Gang’s original “Rapper’s Delight”!
This year’s fundraising efforts came from a combination of efforts through Charity Buzz, Go Fund Me, DSB silent auction and private donations from our association members and friends. This year we raised over $27,000 dollars that will benefit both prostate cancer awareness and the SDGCSA benevolent fund. Thanks to the careful planning and leadership of Nick Angelucci and the DSB planning committee this year’s event went off without a hitch! Thank you for all that were able to attend. Planning from next year’s event has already begun!
