As the first rainfall showers the Bay Area with some much needed precipitation, CAA is so thankful for the beautiful, sunny weather we had last weekend for the 5th Annual CAA Golf Classic. Our wonderful, generous donors hit a HOLE IN ONE helping us to raise $40,000 to further the mission to help our students be the best they can be. We can now offer more classes, workshops and awesome opportunities for our students! This was my first CAA Golf event and certainly will be one of many to come!
CAA is growing fast and to see so many smiling faces on the golf course was very exciting for me. I started with CAA as a volunteer just a few months ago and soon realized this special place I wanted to call home. Golfing may have brought us together on that day and yet, we came away with so much more! The day was all about friendship, giving hugs and laughing under the sun on the golf course. It was about making new friends and seeing old ones. It was about coming together and dancing with Elvis in front of his pink Cadillac! It was about enjoying a day of golf, no matter if you hit the ball or not. Golfing brought us together and we had a BALL!
The CAA Golf Classic was a HUGE success and we are extremely grateful to everyone who came and gave so much of their time and efforts! I cannot tell you how honored I am to be a part of such a supportive and loving community, where differing abilities are applauded and everyone is given the opportunity to shine. SO even though the rain is here, we still carry warm memories from the 5th Annual CAA Golf Classic. I am very excited to a part of the CAA family!
