2018 recap

On Monday, September 17th, over 100 members of the PSWR gathered at San Dimas Canyon golf course for a day of golf, fun and fellowship.

A very sincere THANK YOU to all of those who helped make the golf tournament a success this year. From the sponsors, to the golfers, to the people who bought opportunity and raffle tickets, we are so grateful. Because of your generosity, we were able to raise $18,000.00. This means that each of the six recipients (All Peoples Community Center, Eastmont Community Center, Disciples Seminary Foundation, Chapman University’s Disciples on Campus, Loch Leven Conference Center and Project Impact USA) will receive $3,000.00 each.

Please put September 16, 2019 on your calendar now, for next year’s tournament. We look forward to another great tournament.

The PSWR golf tournament has always been filled with great fellowship and lots of fun. I’m happy to see that it continues into 2018. These tournaments always serve as a bit of a reunion for me as I get to reconnect with those I have not seen for a long time.
