CCAI SoCal Golf Outing Brings In 289 Toys For Tots


On a sunny but unusually chilly day in Southern California, the CCAI SoCal Chapter Annual Toys for Tots Golf Tournament brought in 289 toys for children in need to be distributed by the U.S. Marines annual Toys for Tots drive.


Joined by eight Southern California-based Marines, this second annual event beat last year’s outing by bringing in close to 100 more toys and nearly doubling the amount of golfers to a sold out 76.


Ron Lum, president of the Southern California chapter, was chairman of the event, and said that attendees came from more than 20 states. The 21 sponsors brought in more than $4,700 in support.


Supported by a wide variety of sponsors -- including Products Finishing magazine -- and special donations, everyone in attendance had a terrific time for a great cause. KMI was awarded the ‘Sponsor of the Year’ for their support.


The Southern California chapter thanks all its sponsors and would like to give special notice to ACT Test Panels for donating 200 panels that served as golf bag tags. The panels were powder coated compliments of CCAI So- Cal Board Member, Shivie Dhillon of SunDial Powder Coating.


Axalta also donated a sleeve of golf balls, and SunDial Powder Coating donated “Stogie Sticks” to each golfer.
