The Golf Classic on Monday (May 23) was a wonderful success! Around 120 golfers teed off for PACE and Autism. The fun-filled day showcased tremendous amounts of community spirit and philanthropy for PACE.

The event was held at the scenic Cinnabar Hills Golf Course in San Jose, and we really couldn’t have planned better weather–sunny and a bit breezy. The beautiful Lake and Mountain courses  served as the stage for the all-day tournament. The day was capped with a buffet dinner and silent and live auction, which included Club Seats to the San Jose Sharks and a meet and greet with Toby Keith.

There were many details that gave the tournament the PACE touch, including exciting contests like closest to the pin, longest drive, and putting, a  goodie bag valued at over $150, and a donation drawing for a golf weekend at CordeValle. Our very own Director of Finance & Administration, Nancy Brown, won the 3rd place donation drawing prize–a wine tasting for 30 at Byington Winery!
