The Community Outreach Alliance will host its 3rd annual Charity Golf Classic on Monday, Sept. 23 at Bella Collina San Clemente, from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Entry fee is $150 per player.
The day’s event is focused on raising awareness and funds for COA programs, so that it may continue to provide free activities for youth and families in the community.
Community Outreach Alliance is a nonprofit service established in 2014 in San Clemente as a need to foster a positive solution for young people who were battling drug use and addiction.
COA believes early education and parental awareness are key elements in curbing the epidemic of drug and alcohol abuse. The COA Board of Directors and activity professionals coordinate efforts with the CUSD and the City of San Clemente to offer activities, clinics, and workshops to help “Cure San Clemente.”
Everyone is welcome to join in the Charity Golf Classic, which includes a day of brunch, golf, contests, social hour and prizes. Those who don’t golf, but who would still like to participate and contribute to the cause, can buy tickets for COA’s happy hour event, which includes appetizers, live entertainment from Avery Brostrom and Liva Victoria, and a silent auction.
The golf tournament features a scramble format, with the rules emphasizing fun without the pressure of players keeping individual scores. Each player hits a tee shot on each hole, but everyone plays from the spot of the best shot until the ball is holed.
COA is in its fourth session of offering the Thrive Alive program, which is a free ongoing seven-week course that educates middle through high school students on the current culture that can draw them into making unhealthy choices.
