At Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, CA
October 14th, 2019
The Carrington Charitable Foundation Annual Golf Classic benefiting Carrington House, the Veterans Airlift Command, and our Veteran Support Program honors service members who have sacrificed much to ensure the safety of our nation. Every year since 2011, on the Columbus Day weekend, this distinguished event takes place at The Resort at Pelican Hill. Proceeds directly benefit Carrington House, the Veterans Airlift Command and our Veteran Support Program − improving the lives of wounded heroes who have returned from service and who need support.
The annual event encompasses so much more than a day of golf. Also featuring a banquet and auction, the Golf Classic raises money to provide diverse ongoing assistance to Veterans and their families. Proceeds enable CCF to continue to build custom, adaptive homes for catastrophically wounded Veterans through CCF’s Carrington House program, giving them a home they deserve and can call their own. The Golf Classic also supports the Veterans Airlift Command, which provides transportation to and from medical treatments for our wounded heroes and their families through a national network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots. And the Veteran Support Program assists Veterans in their transition back to civilian life by providing opportunities with other like-minded nonprofits and encouraging and supporting Veteran entrepreneurship opportunities.
“It is a tremendous honor for us to organize this event to give back to our Veterans and their families, and we are grateful that so many others have joined us in this worthy cause,” said Rosemary Rose, Carrington Charitable Foundation Chairman. “The proceeds will continue to assist Veterans with Mobility, Stability, Purpose and Prosperity.”
With the help of generous sponsors, guests, participants and volunteers, the Golf Classic has raised more than $16 million to date. Additionally, the CCF Golf Classic has been named the Top Netting Golf Event in Orange County by the Orange County Business Journal every year since 2015.
