Mihaylo College faculty, staff, donors and alumni gathered at Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Beach on Monday, June 19, for the college’s 23rd annual golf tournament. The golf classic raised more than $140,000, including in-kind gifts, which will be used to fund scholarships and services, such as those offered by the Business Honors Program, and student services such as the Mihaylo Tutoring Center.

The foursome representing Guy Yocom Construction, a longtime donor of Cal State Fullerton and Mihaylo College, took home the first place trophy.

The golf classic was made possible by Helpmates Staffing Companies, this year’s title sponsor; garment sponsor Smart & Final; dinner sponsor Southern Counties Lubricants LLC; product sponsor Pacific Premier Bank; and the college’s alumni and business network.

“We are fortunate to have the Executive Council lead this tournament to support our student success programs. Their network, mentorship and philanthropic support help us encourage our students to succeed,” says Enrique Gonzalez-Salgado, the college’s senior director of development. “We hope we to see more friends and alumni join us for the tournament next year on June 18, 2018.”

With more than $140,000 in proceeds at the 2017 tournament, the Mihaylo Golf Classic has raised nearly $1.3 million over 23 years.
