R.D. OLSON CONSTRUCTION’S CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT RAISES MORE THAN $80,000 FOR OLIVE CREST
IRVINE, CA — R.D. Olson Construction (RDOC), a general contracting firm in Irvine, California, recently hosted its 11th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, raising more than $80,000 for charity.
All proceeds from the event benefit Olive Crest, an Orange County-based nonprofit organization committed to preventing child abuse, treating and educating at-risk children, and preserving the family.
The tournament was hosted at Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, and included industry leaders and professionals including Bill Wilhelm, President of R.D. Olson Construction. The morning started with a continental breakfast and putting contest followed by an 8 a.m. shotgun start. After a helicopter ball drop (winner received a $2,500 grand prize), guests were treated to a catered lunch and cocktail reception while the winners from the golf tournament were announced.
“Our annual Charity Golf Tournament brings the commercial real estate industry together for a fun-filled day of golfing and networking while also raising funds for a local charity,” Wilhelm said.
“This year, we’re honored to support Olive Crest in their pursuit to end the cycle of child abuse by putting children in the care of strong families and a supportive community.”
Since its inception in 1973, Olive Crest has continued to transform the lives of children through its fostering, foster to adopt, and safe families programs. Olive Crest’s model helps prevent abuse and neglect, stops the cycle of child abuse, and enables children and families to become healthy, productive citizens.
