Pasadena, CA - On October 28, 2013, the Caltech Y will host its sixth Annual Golf Tournament and Auction at the Annandale Golf Club to fund its volunteer service, leadership and advocacy programs. With support from friends, community members, and business leaders, this event will help raise needed funds for an organization that has served the Pasadena and Caltech communities for almost 100 years.
The Caltech Y is an independent non-profit organization formally affiliated with the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Founded by students in 1916, the Y was organized to provide extracurricular activities planned and implemented by students as an opportunity to learn leadership skills, explore the outdoors and serve their community. The mission of today's Y remains the same-to provide opportunities that will prepare students to become engaged, responsible citizens of the world. The Y seeks to broaden students' worldviews, raise social, ethical, and cultural awareness through teamwork, community engagement, activism, and leadership.
Come join the Y on the golf course and/or for the dinner and auction following. There will be great prizes for the golfers and over 50 amazing auction items, such as a golf clubs, dinner packages, and a Napa Winery vacation package, for everyone to bid on throughout the evening. This outpouring of support from the community will benefit the programs that have come to represent the Caltech Y's commitment to Pasadena and Caltech.
Students grow and become responsible citizens through programs like Make-A-Difference Day, Alternative Spring Break, and the RISE tutoring program to help Pasadena Unified School District students in math and science. Please help the Y continue these great traditions.
Don Brown and members of the Golf Tournament committee look forward to seeing you join Caltech staff, family, and alumni, as well as many local community members, on October 28, 2013. This is a great networking opportunity for recent graduates, entrepreneurs and golf enthusiasts, to mingle and get connected with the Caltech Y- making a world of difference since 1916.
