The Villara Capital Cup Fundraiser was held on October 7, 8 & 9, 2022.
For the 3rd year in a row Tom Morton, President of Morton Golf Foundation agreed to represent Morton Golf Foundation by playing & fundraising in the 8th Annual Villara Capital Cup fundraiser.
This event had a total of 32 business leaders playing in a Ryder Cup format with Tom Morton being the Captain for the Blue Team, River City Ramblers & Shannon Deary-Bell Captain of the Red Team, Sactown Stars over a three-day period.
The matches were played:
Friday, October 7th at Winchester CC
Saturday, October 8th at Del Paso CC
Sunday, October 9th at Granite Bay GC
The 2 teams had 16 golfers per team. Each golfer enters the event with a $2,500.00 entry fee as they choose their charity of choice & agree to raise money where 100% of all donations go directly back to the charities!
At the Sunday match, each player has the opportunity to bring a caddie. Tom Morton asked his 10 year old son, Ellis to step in and do the job. Ellis was qualified to handle this position after this year winning his age division in the First tee – Greater Sacramento “Little Linkers”.
This year, Morton Golf Foundation had the advantage to have 2 golfers playing for Morton Golf Foundation as they continue to spread the awareness of Morton Golf Foundation even further.
Tom Morton raised $65,856.33 and Kirk Kimmelshue raised $16,782.41 to round our total raised for this year’s event to $83,000.00!
Thanks to all of our donors who continue to support Morton Golf Foundation and the mission of giving back to our local youth, disabled and underserved as we continue to grow.
We are already in the planning stages for next year knowing this is an event not to miss!
