On October 1, the Anaheim Community Foundation (ACF) hosted its inaugural “Kicks for a Cause” Foot Golf Fundraiser & Reception at Dad Miller Golf Course. The day also featured the introduction of the foundation’s new Executive Director, John Guastaferro, CFRE.
More than 90 participants, ACF board members, and Disney VoluntEARS shared in a day of great fun for a great cause. In this twist on golf and soccer, participants kicked soccer balls into oversized holes on the greens. After nine holes of play, the fun continued with an afternoon reception, opportunity auction, and presentation about the Anaheim Community Foundation by Board Chair Ed Munson and other ACF representatives.
“Thanks to our generous supporters, we raised $13,300 for our foundation’s Helping Hands program, which provides grants to local charities to advance their impact,” said John Guastaferro, ACF Executive Director. “I look forward to working with our board of directors and numerous community partners to continue our impact in the coming months.”
The event was made possible by Presenting Sponsor: Anaheim Ducks and Honda Center. Other sponsors included VIP Sponsors: Numa Networks, Disneyland Resort, and Dad Miller Golf Course; and Helping Hands Sponsors: Freeman, Anaheim Public Utilities, Kaiser Permanente, Rutan & Tucker, Hilgenfeld Mortuary, Wells Fargo, and ACF Board of Directors.
Prize items and other amenities were generously provided by Angels Baseball, Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Dodgers, National Grove of Anaheim, The Magic Castle, TGR Foundation, Disneyland Resort, Los Alamitos Medical Center, Costco, and Forest Lawn.
Among the attendees was a foursome from Ronald McDonald House. “Our tribe of Do GOODers loves to support our local communities especially when it’s a fun event like Kicks for a Cause. Thank you Anaheim Community Foundation for all that you to build and maintain a stronger Anaheim,” said Development Director, Susan Kenny.
