The Cardenas Markets Foundation celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month and Mexican Independence Day by hosting its 18th annual fundraising golf tournament Sept. 15 at the Pacific Palms Resort in City of Industry, California.
The event raised more than $825,000 to support the Cardenas Markets Foundation scholarship program, in addition to its health, children’s well-being and hunger relief initiatives.
Tournament participants were able to participate in 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play, and longest drive and closest to-the pin competitions alongside live music, folklorico dancers and samplings throughout both golf courses.
“Events of this magnitude come to fruition through the generous support of our vendor community, and we are so grateful for their ongoing support,” said Adam Salgado, CMO for Cardenas Markets and president of the foundation. “The event was especially meaningful as we came together to raise funds for our future leaders while also honoring the kick-off of Hispanic Heritage Month,” Salgado added.
