What a day!!! Words can't describe what a wonderful day and golf event that took place at The Resort at Pelican Hill on September 20, 2010 in Newport Beach, CA.
The demand to attend this year's Expect Miracles Charity Fall Classic at this superb venue was astonishing. The event quickly sold-out and included over 130 top financial executives from both the East and West coast who played the beautiful Ocean North course of Pelican Hill, which offered breathtaking views from every hole.
However, it was the cocktail reception emceed by former professional baseball player, Steve |Pyscho| Lyons that stole the show with many laughs and smiles from the audience. Auction items included an autographed Callaway Golf Bag by Phil Mickelson, a trip to Hawaii and US Airline tickets. MFAC was also honored to have baseball legend Maury Wills participate in the event.
At the end of the day, MFAC's first trip to California raised over $60,000 for cancer research! We are excited to announce that The Expect Miracles Charity Fall Classic will be returning to Pelican Hill in 2011 and doubling in size to offer both the Ocean North and Ocean South Courses all to support cancer research. MFAC is looking forward to growing the West Coast Golf Tournament in the next few years to mirror the Boston Golf Event, which raised over $600,000 this past year.
MFAC would like to thank all its sponsors, donors, volunteers and participants for an incredible day. We look forward to seeing everyone back in California next year!
