Eight Annual Jim Mora Celebrity Golf ClassicRaises over $500,000 for Children's Charities
The Jim Mora Count on Me Family Foundation is proud to share in the success of the sold out Eighth Annual Jim Mora Celebrity Golf Classic and BackSwing Bash & Auction Dinner at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. With the help of presenting sponsor, X2 Biosystems, Platinum, Gold, Silver & Bronze sponsors, donors, participants and volunteers, the event raised in excess of $500,000. The funds raised from this event are used to support children's charities throughout the greater Los Angeles area. The Count On Me Family Foundation believes in partnering with organizations that inspire, nurture and empower the lives of children.
Over 150 golfers including sponsors and celebrities participated in this year's Golf Classic. Golfers enjoyed an amazing day of on course golf, contests, food and drinks at the iconic Rivera Country Club. The day was filled with a buzz of activity as radio personalities, Petros and Money, did a live broadcast from the event. Concluding the day of golf, participants were joined by their guests at the BackSwing Bash as well as Dinner Auction to enjoy a fabulous sit down dinner, unique auction experiences and sports memorabilia.
Highlighting the evening was a heartfelt speech by Special Olympic Athlete, Caley Versfelt, who was introduced by Chuck White, the voice of Bruin Football. Caley was the event's special guest speaker who left the auction guests ready and willing to raise their bid cards high in the air for a record-breaking Raise the Paddle. The inaugural Golf Classic was not only a huge success, but also a memorable experience for sponsors, golfers, celebrities, and guests.
