Report on 2nd Annual Berkeley City Tournament

December 10, 2000

October 2 was a beautiful day - and Berkeley held its Second
Annual Berkeley City Championship
. Now we're an established
Community event. We had one hundred golfers. More than
seventy-five businesses and individuals gave generously of their
time, sponsored holes and donated raffle items that made for a very
successful day.

Greg Goodfried gave us a terrific Championship score of 72
and plans to play next year. Barra had a Championship team score of
352 and 16 players! And no one is going to forget the stirring
saxaphone of George Brooks performing our National Anthem.

Our Community won too:

$1,000 Berkeley Public Library Building Fund
(the Championship has earned a wall tile!)

$ 500 The Berkeley Community Fund
(the BCF makes grants to worthy local causes)

$1,000 The Berkeley Public Education Foundation
(Classroom Grants to Teachers and School Volunteers)

$ 600 Berkeley Youth Aternatives
(Educational/Arts/Sports programs for Kids)

$ 600 Women's Daytime Drop-In Center
(Daytime Assistance/Programs for Women and Children)

$ 500 Berkeley Police Activities League
(Programs and Activities for Kids)

$ 500 Berkeley Community Gardening Collaborative
(Urban Agriculture, Education and Healthy Food)

$1,000 Berkeley Repretory Theatre Building Fund
(some day see our BCC Brick in the floor!)

$1,000 Berkeley Chamber of Commerce (as fiscal agent)
(proceeds to the Addison Street Poetry Panels)

$ 250 Berkeley Animal Shelter Building Fund

Thanks to all for a great day of memories!
See you at the first tee next year!
