On Friday, May 17, 2019, Fresno NLPOA completed another successful Scholarship Golf Tournament. One Hundred and forty three Golfers and thirty volunteers and guest enjoyed a fun filled event. Madera County Sheriff Jay Varney and his lovely wife, Amy, joined us this year for lunch. The baskets and the live auction created a lot of excitement. Golf Coordinator Joe Ortiz did another great job in signing up and coordinating the golfers. The volunteers and basket coordinators of Maria Ortiz and Rosemary Diaz prepared over 125 item for the raffle, as well as the goodie bags for the golfers with the assistance of Norma Aguilera, Angelina Bosniak, Rachel Diaz, Raquel Zamorano, Daisy Santillan and Bob Solis. Armando & Tina Hindman and Jose Gutierrez did an excellent job in registering the golfers at the tournament.

Everyone is commended for his and her efforts in making our 10th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament a success. Graciela James, Scholarship Committee Chairperson, identified the 17 Scholarship Recipients from a large number of applicants and because of the outstanding work by everyone, 17 High School Seniors in Fresno County will be receiving $1,000 each to attend college.
