Five Acres presented its “Homecoming Tailgate” 35th Annual Golf Classic, steered by Co-chairs Danny Reaume and Joey Reaume on September 18 at the San Gabriel Country Club.
Danny Reaume, Senior Vice President at Jones Lang LaSalle, and Joey Reaume, First Vice President at Colliers International, have actively contributed to the Five Acres Golf committee for seven years, marking their fifth year as co-chairs. Their involvement was inspired by their father, Brad Reaume of Bolton & Company, who was not only the title sponsor of this golf classic but also a former Tournament Chair and active committee member.
Guests came dressed in their favorite college attire for cocktails and dinner after the Golf Tournament. The “Homecoming Tailgate” theme celebrated Five Acres’ 135-year legacy, nodding to the tradition of homecoming events which honor the long-standing existence of institutions. Historically, the Golf Classic has been a cornerstone for Five Acres, raising over $4 million. These funds have been pivotal in supporting foster care, adoption, and mental health services for children and families in crisis in Los Angeles.
Event highlights included a golf round, followed by an evening awards ceremony, DJ entertainment, beverages, gourmet dinner, and a lively auction.
Since 1888, Five Acres has protected the most vulnerable members of the community: children. Serving more than 6,500 children and family members annually across six counties, Five Acres now strives for permanency—a permanent, loving home—for all children in their care. The three pillars of safety, well-being and permanency provide the framework for its programs and guide the steps as the agency develops even more effective means of caring for children and families in crisis.
