ICS to benefit from San Diego North Chamber golf tournament

The San Diego North Chamber of Chamber of Commerce is offering an opportunity to play golf while helping Interfaith Community Services.

The chamber is holding its second charity golf tournament Monday, May 12, at Morgan Run Club & Resort in Rancho Santa Fe and has chosen Interfaith as the event’s beneficiary. Click here for event details.

“We select different charities every year that are members of our organization. We selected Interfaith based on the great work they do in San Diego,” said Rich Kwiatkowski, director of business development.

Supporters of Interfaith Community Services are invited to join the chamber’s members and the general public in sponsoring or entering a foursome for the tournament. The chamber is hoping to attract a full field of 144 golfers for the scramble-format tourney, which tees off at noon.

“I think people will enjoy playing that course. It’s one of the better courses in San Diego County,” said Kwiatkowski.

“They host several celebrity tournaments a year. The course was just renovated. It’s got a lot of new features,” added Cathleen Galicinao, the chamber’s marketing and events manager.

Along with the golf, the event will feature a silent auction, a hole-in-one contest, a raffle, assorted games, and opportunities to win prizes at various holes on the course. An awards reception with appetizers and drinks will follow the tourney.

“It’s golfing with a purpose: a day of fun and networking while benefiting Interfaith Community Services,” said Galicinao.

Cost for a foursome is $800. Single players are $200. The chamber is offering a discounted price of $750 for groups registering using the code ACE. To attend just the reception is $30.

Tournament packages include greens fees, carts, range balls, gift bags, drink tickets, awards, lunch and dinner. To register, visit www.sdncc.com or call 858-487-1767.

“You don’t need many reasons to play golf,” said Kwiatkowski. “I think this is a great way to support the regional chamber and a great organization. It will be a good day playing golf with good people.”

Bob Adams, Interfaith’s director of development, is grateful for the chamber’s support.

“We are so appreciative that such a prominent group of North County leaders has chosen Interfaith Community services as the beneficiary of its annual golf tournament,” he said.
