What better way is there to build a sense of community and friendship while supporting STEM education for girls, than at the Diablo Country Club supporting Carondelet's 25th Annual Golf Tournament! The course was full of entertaining activities-a marshmallow drive, putting contest, longest drive, closest-to-the-hole contest, two hole-in-one contests for cars, bulls eye, black jack, hit the green, and more. Six student athletes from the Golf team were also on the course stationed at holes 5 and 16 ready to take a tee shot for a player for $10. Together they raised about $1,600!
Course refreshments included a fabulous Morucci's boxed lunch as well as quesadillas and margaritas on the first tee, Maverick's hot links and shrimp cocktail on the seventh tee, a hosted beverage cart, and ice cream (very popular in the warm weather). After all the on-course fun, players enjoyed a two-hour premium hosted bar in the clubhouse and a delicious dinner with fun awards and prizes. It was a "win-win situation," since the Swing for Science Golf Tournament benefitted the STEM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math education) at Carondelet.
Thank you to our 30 volunteers for helping make this such a fantastic event for our 94 golfers! We couldn't have done it without you.
Congratulations to our $5,000 Pebble Beach gift card winner JB Orrechia!
