Five Acres, San Gabriel Valley’s oldest nonprofit, celebrated its 30th Annual Golf Classic and Mad for Plaid Par-Tee on September 18,  at a private golf club in Pasadena. The event raised critical funds to support children and families in Los Angeles and also recognized past chairs for their contribution to Five Acres’ mission.

Following the 18-hole golf tournament, guest were invited to don their finest plaid for a Scottish-themed Mad for Plaid Par-Tee. The evening included cocktails in the “Tartan Tavern” along with dinner, dancing and live entertainment. Sensational auction items included an 8-day Viking Cruises river cruise, helicopter ride and priceless guitar autographed by Maroon 5.

In honor of 30 years of community support, a special honorary committee of former chairs received special recognition.

“Our past chairs have been champions for Five Acres’ mission to help kids and families thrive, setting examples for others to join the cause,” said Bolton & Company’s Brad Reaume, Title Sponsor and former Five Acres golf chair. “The 30th golf classic anniversary is the ideal opportunity to honor that work and inspire future leaders.”

“The Five Acres golf tournament has raised more than $3.9 million in support since 1987. We encourage anybody interested in helping vulnerable children to visit the Five Acres campus in Altadena to see what they’ve done,” said Street.
