Napa, Calif. – The 13th Annual Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic – the only fundraising event in Napa Valley to be exclusively dedicated to the needs of farmworkers – will be held Friday, May 6, 2011 at the Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa. Organized by the Napa Valley Farmworker Committee and the Cinco de Mayo Committee, funds raised by the Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic are used to improve farmworker housing, healthcare and education.
The Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic is made possible through the generous underwriting provided by individuals, corporations and organizations, many of whom have supported the Golf Classic for multiple years. 2011 underwriters include: American Ag Credit, Brown Holder Alfaro & Co LLP, Cakebread Cellars, Compadres Rio Grille, Garvey Family Vineyards, Miner Family Vineyards, Servin-Lopez Vineyard Management, Silicon Valley Bank, Trinchero Family Estates, and Wells Fargo Bank.
“Our underwriters are vital to the success of the Golf Classic and we are enormously grateful for their continued support,” said Pat Garvey, member of both the Farmworker and Cinco de Mayo Committees and proprietor of Flora Springs Wine Company. “Funds raised through the Golf Classic – through the support of our underwriters, sponsors, supporting businesses and players – provide the farmworkers who work so hard in Napa Valley with the basic necessities and services that are often taken for granted.”
The Cinco de Mayo Golf Classic provides funds for a host of vital projects at Napa’s Farmworker Housing Facilities that are not covered in Napa County’s Farmworker Housing operational budget. These include items such as commercial kitchen equipment, beds, lockers, landscaping supplies, as well as health and social services including dental assistance, work assistance and leadership training.
