It was a day of friendly competition, food and drinks, live music and camaraderie with colleagues, clients, and corporate partners at the beautiful Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, California. On October 5th, CBRE hosted their 6th Annual Charity Golf Classic. It was CBRE’s southern California project management invitational golf tournament benefiting Junior Diabetes Research Fund. Excel Construction was a sponsor of the event.
JDRF funds research that transforms the lives of people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Their motto is, “We want a cure, and we won’t stop until we find one. Along the way, we will continue to drive scientific progress that delivers new treatments and therapies that make day-to-day life with T1D easier, safer and healthier.” JDRF supports the best researchers doing the most promising, cutting-edge science to cure, prevent and treat T1D.
Participants were encouraged to come and purchase a foursome, be a sponsor or just come to laugh and share stories with peers at the reception. There was an opportunity for everyone to get together and raise money for an important cause affecting 40,000 children and adults annually.
The morning started with registration for the event while the driving range and putting green were open to participants. Around noon, they had a lunch box pickup followed by the tournament play that began with a shotgun start. After the tournament, the day ended with a networking reception and silent auction followed by dinner and live auction.
