Camarena Health hosted its ninth annual Camarena Classic Charity Golf Tournament.


The sold out event was host to 144 golfers at Dragonfly Golf Club in Madera on April 30.


Players, sponsors, and donors helped raise more than $56,000. Proceeds directly support community benefit programs Camarena Health provides to the community such as Car Seats for Kids, Reach Out and Read, and the Camarena Health Scholarship Program.


Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, local food vendors provided golfers with breakfast burritos from Taqueria Mexico and Dutch Bros. Pizza deliveries were made to golfers on the course for lunch, and burgers were served by Colorado Grill for dinner.


Golfers had a number of opportunities to get a leg up on the competition throughout the day. 2016 International Long Drive Champion, Patrick Bakerjian of Charity Golf International, hit drives for players who made extra donations.


Two hole-in-one competitions were sponsored by Roger Dunn Golf Shops and Steves Chevrolet of Chowchilla.


Acclaimed Fresno State women’s golf coach Emily Loftin hit drives for players on hole 8.


Camarena Health thanks all players, sponsors, and donors for contributing to the successful turnout of the event and looks forward to putting funds raised to good use with its community programs. The Camarena Classic is possible thanks to Camarena Health staff and volunteers.
