Friends and families, mark your calendars for the 16th annual ABHOW Foundation Golf Classic at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, Calif., on Sept. 24!
But you don’t have to wait until then to get involved. The Foundation already offers sponsorship and donation opportunities to those who want to join in now. Bid on items such as bottles of wine, golf carts, a trip to Hawaii, two autographed footballs and two tickets to the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Word of the tournament has spread far and wide, and news outlets such as Pleasanton Weekly and San Ramon Express are taking note. Since its inception in 1997, the event has netted more than $1 million to support ABHOW’s current 31 affordable housing communities and future campuses. Proceeds from the tournament go to help pay for amenities that improve the quality of life for residents.
“Every year we think the golf tournament can’t get bigger or better, and every year we’re pleasantly surprised when it does,” says Al Salottolo, event chair and ABHOW Foundation board member.
“We’re especially looking forward to a change of venue to Blackhawk Country Club. We expect our golfers to be excited about this new tournament challenge.”
Blackhawk, the area’s premier golf location, includes two 18-hole, par-72 courses that feature an elegant background of rolling hills and East Bay vistas.
If golf isn’t your game, spend time at Claremont Club & Spa during the day, then attend Blackhawk Country Club’s evening events that include a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, dinner and an awards ceremony.
Online registration is now open. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, contact ABHOW Foundation Secretary Lynette Giannotti at 800-222-2469 (ext. 7152) or email her at LGiannotti@abhow.com.
