Thank You for Joining Us at the 3rd Annual Artichoke Festival Charity Golf Tournament

The Artichoke Festival Board and Golf Committee members wish to express their deepest gratitude for the support of Sponsors and golfers who joined our volunteers on Saturday at Pajaro Valley Golf Club, for the 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament! We hope you enjoyed your day on the links as much as we enjoyed hosting you. Many of you went away with some awesome raffle prizes, and a few very skilled golfers won hole prizes, and a hallowed position on the Artichoke Festival’s official Golf Tournament Trophy.

The mission of the Annual Artichoke Festival Charity Golf Tournament is to raise money for food and toys for families in need during the holidays.Thanks to everyone’s support and hard work, the Festival Committee will be able to donate fundraising proceeds from this event to local nonprofits supporting families in need during the holidays. Along with sponsorship support, the Cash-for-Mulligans program and raffle donations all played a part in the support of this cause.

Thank you ALL, and we’ll see you next year!

Please don’t forget to patronize our generous sponsors!
