2016 NorCal Swinvitational Raises Record-Breaking NumbersContributor: Swinerton Blogger | June 22, 2016 | Image Gallery »
The 11th Annual NorCal Swinvitational was a huge success! Held at Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton, California, the fundraiser is one of the most anticipated events of the year. In 2014, the Swinvitational raised $68,723 while in 2015 $90,685 was raised. This year, the team was able to raise an impressive $135,513—nearly doubling their fundraising total from two years ago!
This year over 152 golfers and 32 bocce ball participants from over 50 companies were in attendance ready to swing, or throw, their way into first place. Although the competition was tough, two teams were named champions—the Russell Hinton Company sponsored team took first place in the golf tournament, while the Raymond Group sponsored team took home the bocce ball tournament for the second consecutive year.
The Swinvitational would not be possible without all of our amazing sponsors. This year, our Hole-in-One Sponsor Airco Mechanical made “Aircotinis” for all golfers which were a huge hit! Because the event is now so popular, VIP sponsors are now being honored. Swinerton’s very first VIP sponsor, Jim Berriatua of Arthur J. Gallagher, has supported the Swinvitational for many years by purchasing multiple gold sponsorships, a record number of raffle tickets, and even raffling off his own prizes when he wins. It’s dedication and commitment like this that continue to make this event a huge success year after year.
