OCTOBER 30, 2019 -- La Mirada, CA -- On October 24th, 2019, Spinitar, with their guests and sponsors, raised a record-breaking $113,000 for City of Hope Cancer Treatment and Research Center located in Southern California during Spinitar’s annual Golf for Hope charity event.
Celebrating the five-year anniversary of Golf for Hope at Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine, CA, Spinitar is proud to announce that they have raised more than $400,000 for the non-profit organization.
The sold-out event brought together AV industry partners, customers, family, and friends in the effort to raise awareness for those suffering from cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening illnesses. Guests who attended the event experienced a days’ worth of golf, friendly competitions, raffle and auction activities, awards ceremony, dinner, and a reception.
This year’s special guest speaker was City of Hope survivor, Tiffany Jones, who is a 47-year-old wife and mother of two children who was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer, Dermafibrosarcosis Protuberans or DFSP, in 2013. Jones is a successful business owner whose hobbies include golf, rock climbing, and traveling.
“Each year it is my honor to be among so many supportive friends and family as we all come together to raise awareness for cancer and diabetic research at City of Hope,” Said Spinitar Principal, Jay Rogina. “With several milestone memories made this year, including the heartfelt story from Tiffany Jones and her quest to becoming cancer-free, Spinitar is proud to give back to a cause much bigger than all of us.”
Also in attendance this year was celebrity guest Andy Buckley who is best known for his role on The Office, and LPGA Champion Amy Alcott. This year’s Diamond Sponsors included Crestron, Legrand AV, Planar Systems and Shure. The hole-in-one sponsor was Rusnak Land Rover of Anaheim Hills.
“Thanks again to all of our sponsors, guests, and friends for coming out for a great day of fun and fundraising for the City of Hope and their efforts to fight and cure cancer and other life-threatening illnesses!” Said Spinitar Principal, Jeff Irvin.
