Tournament Dinner


American Canyon, CA – Representatives from Marriott Hotels and Sodexo Food Services announced that the 22nd annual NorCal Golf 4 Charity Event would take place on June 6.  The Tournament, too popular for one golf course to hold, will once again be played at the two beautiful courses that make up the Chardonnay Golf Club in Napa County.
The tournament benefits local charities and has raised over $1.85 million since its inception.  This year benefactors will include UC Davis Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Research Center Oakland, Second Harvest Food Bank and Stop Hunger.  Last year over $200,000 was donated to charity and the hope is to have record setting donations made this year.
Tim Howard, General Manager of the Courtyard Marriott hotel in Novato California is co-chair of this year’s event.  Howard emphasized that players need to sign up early as this event sells out.  “Our maximum number of golfers is 288 and we usually sell out. That speaks to the fun, prizes and surprises in store for all the participants.” 
Rob Pasos, also co-chair of the tournament, and Vice-President for Sodexo, encouraged non-golfers to join the festivities at the dinner following the tournament.  “We have an outstanding menu planned and the chef’s at Chardonnay always have a something extra in store for us.  Bidders can secure some unusual purchases at great values at the silent and live auctions too.”
This year prizes available at the auction include trips to Costa Rica, Paris, London, Waikiki, New York, Malaysia and more.  There are also 50 raffle prizes available.
Pasos and Howard both spoke about how proud their organizations are to be Founding Host Sponsors and to have been part of this event for 21 years.  “The NorCal Golf 4 Charity event is something all of our employees at Marriott and Sodexo are proud to be associated with,” said Howard.
Reservations to play in the tournament or to attend the post tournament auction and dinner can be made online at  Golf and dinner is $400 per person and to attend just the dinner the cost is $35 per person.
