Plaza de la Raza's Annual Charity Golf Classic
Plaza de la Raza, the nation’s longest operating Latino based multi-disciplinary arts center, will present its Annual Charity Golf Classic on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at the beautiful Montebello Golf Course in East Los Angeles. The annual event is an opportunity for members from the community to enjoy a morning round of golf with friends and co-workers, followed by a luncheon on the grounds, serenaded by the Plaza Mariachi Juvenil, the student youth mariachi ensemble from the award winning after school program, Plaza’s School for the Performing and Visual Arts. In addition, golfers will be entertained by students while on the greens, and will have the opportunity to win door prizes during the celebratory meal. “The golf classic provides Plaza de la Raza the opportunity to partner with the Los Angeles Business Community to fund arts education,” comments Armando G. Ramirez, Chairman of Plaza de la Raza’s Board of Directors.
All proceeds benefit Plaza de la Raza and the after-school program, which hosts over 5,100 local students and children each year, most of the tuition scholarship recipients from the surrounding area of Lincoln Heights and East Los Angeles. 85% of the students are from families at or below the federal poverty standard of income, yet they attend classes in music, art, theatre and dance throughout the year including a summer school session.
This year, SAFNA Engineering & Consulting is the title sponsor for the event, along with IHOP and Ramona's Mexican Food Products. Plaza’s Charity Golf Classic is also supported by volunteers from the Latina Golfers Association. Donors and patrons can purchase tickets for foursomes or individuals by contacting event Co-Chair Rose Elena Sauceda at (626) 688-5780 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plaza de la Raza is also still looking for donations of door prizes if you would like to contribute to our students and cultural center. Plaza is a California non-profit organization and donations or tickets can be credited up to the limit of the law. Come join us at the Montebello Country Club on June 7th for a fun outing and a good cause, and support the students at Plaza de la Raza!
