DVC Foundation Golf Tournament
The DVC Foundation held the 12th Annual Golf Tournament on Monday, July 13th at Contra Costa Country Club. The event is sponsored by Tesoro Refining and Marketing, as well as ten additional sponsors. All proceeds from the tournament benefit student scholarships, campus programs, facility improvements and more.
It takes a lot of volunteers to make this event successful and several of our DVC professional staff members volunteered their time to make the tournament a success. Special thanks to: Julie Catalano, Terri Cassidy, Jeanie Dewhurst, Christine Garcia, Marcia Giovanni, Nancy Harvey, Patty Herrera, Dean Holman, Diane Nevis, Sonia Nilsen, Linda Robbins, Sue Rohlicek, Cyndi Stauffer, Hedy Wong, and Carol Yacorzynski.
Additional thanks goes out to volunteers Dianne Catalano, Jeff Gale, Ryan Harvey, Mike Kornek, and Jimmy Goga who are all friends and family of a DVC employee.
It's also important to recognize Foundation Director, Cindy Goga, and the staff team, Catherine Franco and Leslie Mills, for their hard work in organizing the event.
The anticipated net from this event is $75,000 - much needed funding for our DVC students. This is another example of our commitment to students...everyday in every way we are helping someone in some way to reach their educational goal.
