Close to 200 golfers showed up for a fantastic day of golf on the Olympic Club Lake and Ocean courses and an evening of fun. We were granted a day of beautiful sunshine where our patrons enjoyed a day of golf followed by a reception and dinner.
The day opened with patrons checking the clubhouse and obtaining a complementary pair of Nike Shoes.
Guests were able to view and bid on fantastic silent auction items.
